Glide Desktop app for admin dashboard

Number formatting is a topic that’s on top of mind for us at the moment. I can’t give you a timeline, but we’ll hopefully have something soon :slight_smile:

I will wait for you

Oops! I see we don’t allow iframe embedding for security reasons. My bad.

Thanks for confirming that I’m not nuts!

If there’s any way to figure out a way to prevent the security issues, it would be great to have it as an option.

I see this topic hasn’t been active for a while. Is iframe embedding still not something that is planned for? I help out at a web design company and tried pitching Glide to use as their “customer portal” for checking on progress, status and requests.
I feel that the ability to embed the app into their current system would really help Glide expand its use cases.

Iframe is still not working, and I think there’s a security concern here, same with not being able to embed iframes into Gmails. People can use it to start a phishing attack.

I have my Glide App working perfectly in an iframe within a webpage on all platforms except on an iPhone (iPad is okay). On the iPhone the App begins to load and then crashes the page. Currently looking for a solution to this.

Is it possible to share the page that has the app in an iframe working properly and the code you’re using to embed it? I haven’t been able to get iframes to work with Glide apps.

I can’t share a link to the page as it is a members only booking system. But I have attached an image.

It reformats to accommodate mobile devices (Android & iPad) and as I said, on an iPhone it formats correctly then, as it loads data, crashes the page.

The code is really simple:

.iframe-container { overflow: hidden; position: relative; } .iframe-container iframe { top: 0; border:1px solid #ccc; width: 80%; height: 900px; box-shadow: 0 4px 8px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), 0 6px 20px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.19); margin-bottom:20px; margin-top:20px; }
		<div class="iframe-container" align="center">
				<iframe src=""></iframe>

The Glide App is also simple in that it doesn’t contain images or video.


Yes! It’s working!! I used to use the same code and it never worked (apparently blocked by Glide for security reasons). Something must have changed and now it works. I love it!!!

Great news!
I have just fixed the iPhone problem. iframe height=“900” was blowing it up. Changed it to “600” and all okay :slight_smile:


The workaround i found for Google Sites is you can embed the New Google sites as an Iframe inside a Classic Google sites, which can then be used in Glide…

Thank you, unfortunately classic sites will be deprecated at end of this year.

Thanks for sharing! This solution works perfectly for me on my Wordpress site.

Confirming it also works for me in Wordpress sites! :raised_hands:

Thanks @malcolm for the tip!

I built a kiosk that is used on a vertical screen in mobile view and the employees are entries and access them via a desktop using the tablet view

Is this kind of what you were looking for?

also discovered that you can use the URL instead of a custom domain and it will show in web view…

With using a Google Sheet for data and Glide for an end user portal I have created admin portals using Appsheet. yes there’s additional cost with Appsheet but you get full control over data for the admin users.


@Mark_Turrell very interesting!
