How can I delete rows and perform a reset?

I would be grateful if anyone can share a tip to help a user to reset my Glide App.

Specifically, the App is designed to allow users to add entries (rows) via a simple form. The app then uses the standard list views to show the entries. Is there a way to delete all rows and effectively reset the App by deleting all the existing rows? A button that triggers this action would be great.

I have scanned the community and it looks like some people are using scripts but this appears to cause issues when duplicating the App. Hence, I would be delighted if this could be done within Glide.

Thanks in advance,

Aside from scripts, there’s no (current) way to delete rows of data from your spreadsheet.


You want an action that deletes all rows in a table?

Yes please @david or delete an individual row (rather than relying exclusively on the the delete button)

I think the ideal would be an action that operates on all rows through a multiple relation.

Think SQL… “update ‘foo’ where ‘bar’” or “delete ‘foo’ where ‘bar’”


How about an action that deletes/clears all values in a column? I know we have the clear column but that just clears one cell and not the whole column.

More specific:

  • We need to have a way to clear/write all rows belonging to a GS column and/or a user specific column at the same time.

With first case, the workaround could be a script but with 2nd one, it is impossible so far.

A fast solution could be that any Set Column action (Clear Value) works with a multiple relation but currently, it only accepts a simple relation and an only one row can be deleted (or modify its value) … a nightmare!!

Not quite. I would like to be able to delete all entries (rows) appearing in a list.

YES. THIS. Whether it’s update a column with a constant (timestamp), or clear a column based on the multiple relation, this would be SO helpful.


Definitely on the roadmap!


I just saw that Integromat has an action that “Delete Rows” in case someone is interested.
