Creating a second app off the same data

Hi there -

I’m looking to create a new app off the same data sheet as an existing app. The existing app and new app are both the new version, but the option in the menu isn’t there any more to achieve this (as far as I can see).

Menu from a “classic” app:

Menu from a the new breed of apps:

Would it be best to use an external data source like Google sheets and link both apps to that?

Thanks for your help!

The “New App from data” option only appears for Classic Apps.
If you want to create a new App based on a “non-Classic” App, you can simply duplicate it.

Thanks! To clarify, I’m looking to do it so that a change in the data in one app can be reflected in the other app - I’m assuming duplicating won’t enable that?

It depends. Have a read of the below:

The above was in the context of “New App from data”, but it applies equally when duplicating an App.
