I’m looking for some pointers on the best way to start with this…
I’m working on my first app for the Glide store which is tightly focussed on a particular niche, and our potential customers are not tech savvy, so it’s important that it works right away for them when they purchase it.
All they will have to do is swap out the dummy content with their own, so we don’t need the extra layer of complexity of a Google Sheet.
Usually I work by adding and formatting content into a Google Sheet which is fine for my own projects as it is only me who is managing the content. And where needed I can share the sheet with some of my collaborators.
But this is the first time I am going to build something for other people.
The last Glide project I built was during lockdown 1.0 and in that time Glide has come on leaps and bounds and now has its own spreadsheet.
The thing is, during the initial onboarding of creating a new app in the dashboard it is asking me to make a choice of data source and it seems that once that choice is made it cannot be undone.
If I choose Google Sheets as it’s easier (and quicker) for me to create the dummy content for my app, and collaborate with my helpers, my instinct is telling me this could be a bad choice for the end user as I don’t want Google Sheets to get in their way, i.e. another thing for them to sign up to and manage.
Also, if I choose Glide Tables then I can’t see where I can import data from a Google Sheet.
Any ideas on the best way to approach this would be deeply appreciated, thank you.
