Downloaded data to users device

if the data source is a Google Sheet without row owners.
is all data in all sheets downloaded to a users device regardless of which tab he is on? or whether the sheet is even used in a Tab.

If a sheet is referenced anywhere in the app, then yes, in the absence of row owners all data in that sheet would be sent to each users device.


So if the app has 2 tabs based on 2 sheets.
Tab 1. Orders based on Orders sheet
Tab 2. Order Items based on Items sheet
The user device will start downloading the data of the 2nd sheet (Items Sheet) as soon as the user opens the app, even if the user does not navigate to the 2nd tab right?

Yes, that’s my understanding.
I don’t know if there is any particular order in which the data gets loaded, but if I was to take a guess I’d say that tables are probably loaded in the same order in which they appear in the builder. I could be wrong on that point, but the important thing to understand is that all data that isn’t protected by row owners will be sent to the client when the app is loaded.
