Okay here is the app…test it please…It is not finished yet…I still have lots to add but the editor is not letting me do anything…Don’t pay with Stripe (I have yet to set it up (payrequest), but pretend you are pay with PayPal…

First time you use the app you are met with Glide’s date picker…after you press search the game is replaced with Jeff’s calendar.

Wait a few seconds after payment to see your reservation on the calendar go red…Having sync issues too even though not using any scripts at all!

Each room has its own Calendar so to speak. so question of date conflict does not arise.

Like I said…not finished yet…all depends on Glide’s response to my ills…will post video on all the troubles I have been facing for last two weeks ! Maybe you guys could assist.

Thank you

Flipping through the app tabs not an issue.

Here is a loom video of all my problems. The new message now I am getting used to is below (lol): It takes ages for everything to load now…I type in some text…the first letter shows but the rest of the sentence after 10-20 seconds.

Judging by your video and the Loom countdown timer freezing up, I would say you have something working your browser or computer pretty hard. I don’t know if it would necessarily be Glide that’s the problem, unless you have some very heavy calculations taking place in your data. My be worth a full computer restart or check you task manager to see what’s using up all of your CPU or RAM.

Hmmm i do have a lot of calculations it’s true but why that should be an issue is a mystery not least when all taking place in the editor. Checked everything on the net and browser side but all fine. I have 3 laptops and facing same issue on two of them ( third I’ve not tested yet). Thing is when I use some other application like concepts even (which has an unbearable amount of formulas and calculations - in a nice way :slightly_smiling_face:) all works fine but admittedly this app has a structure that’s even new to me. I’ll run checks on everything again just to be on the safe side.

Thanks

As for the loom countdown timer, I exceed my max 5 minutes, sadly.

Calculation are in the editor, but your computer is still processing them locally. Google Sheets is the same way when you have the sheet open. Your local resources are used to perform calculations.
Calculations don’t happen on the server. I’ve had heavy apps spin up my cooling fan when there is a lot to process. Mostly this has happened to me when I’ve created relations to a few thousand rows that rely on computed columns to compute on all of the related rows before the relation can return data. In some cases, it has crashed the browser tab, so I know it’s possible if you are making it work through a lot of data. If it’s happening on multiple computers, then it’s probably not an external source, but something with the structure of your app and maybe some inefficient relations. Windows Task Manger would confirm if chrome is using up resources or not. Chrome also has it’s own task manager as well to see which tabs are using resources.

As for my mention of loom, I wasn’t referring to the 5 minute limit, I was referring to the fact that the time paused several times in your video, which would indicate to me that the computer is working extra hard and using up all available CPU and/or RAM.

I’m looking into it. Will report back soon. Tx again. I think it might be your calendar which has more calculations than even a treasury red book lol :joy:. I’m inspecting everything now. Tx Jeff ! I need this calendar for many more things.

Not going to believe this @Jeff_Hager !

  1. Made a copy of the app.
  2. Removed all calculations. Outcome? Same as before.
  3. Removed lots of relations and hidden tabs. Outcome? Same as before.
  4. Made another copy the of the source app.
  5. Had relations to and from Calendar tab. Nothing wrong with the relations (that I know). Unlinked the calendar. Outcome ?

Everything is back to normal.

It’s glide tables. I should have known they are risky business. I’ll recreate the calendar on the sheet. I know it will work.

Let me test same calendar on the sheet.

If it is the glide tables causing the problem then please report it to glide. Seams as quite a few people are starting to talk quite badly about the glide tables. If there is a problem then this should be fixed.

I have informed them. Thank you. I normally avoid glide tables unless for simple tasks. I have myself to blame for this🙂

Hey, don’t blame this on me. :wink:

@Lucas_Pires where were you yesterday bro. Needed you badly. But we all solved the issue in the end. I’m rebuilding the calendar in the sheet. Although nothing wrong with the app itself, glide tables was causing huge backend issues. Now things are back to normal. As soon as I’m done I’ll post it here again. Need your feedback.
