Increment Action?!

@Mark. Another weird increment bug. It looks like the column value is being cached incorrectly. When I attempt to +1 or -1 it doesn’t increment from the column value. Hard to explain…you have to see it for yourself:


I have exactly the same issue with -1 and +1action. I set up my buttons a few days ago and it worked like a charm. But when I tried again yesterday I had exactly the same issue as @Robert_Petitto mentionned . It seems like a sort of cache is causing the trouble. Tks

Thanks for confirming. Yes, it was working beautifully until a couple days ago.

I am trying to figure out how you were able to navigate screens using the increment action, and I just can’t seem to do it. I watched a couple other tutorials as well, and they are not making sense. Can you point me to a “Navigation for Dummies” instruction on this if you know of one?

I’m not navigating screens, but I’m “navigating” between various elements of a particular sheet/screen. Increments increase/decrease a column value. If each of your rows has a value assigned (row number) then you can FILTER an inline list by the column that you’re incrementing. In my example above, I have a 5 columns of data. That data is assigned a number. I’m then controlling the VISIBILITY of that data using the increment feature (if Number = 1, show text 1…etc.)

I have tried to explain it here! If you get stuck still, you can reach out and I will guide you!



Robert, I had some problems with that also…

Yesterday I doing some tests, and it worked

The problem still keeps there?

Yes…the problem still exists:

This will be fixed later today. Thank you for reporting, and apologies!

Thank you Mark!

It also appears that when force closing an app and relaunching, the value resets upon the next button push.

Hey @Robert_Petitto

Can this be done with one button for all of the selections?


? One button to clear all? I don’t think so. An increment only applies to one column…but maybe once “Triggered Actions” is a thing… :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

I have a user specific column I was wondering if I could have a “reset button” for that column. Thing is the user specific column is being used by different products which the user might select. I tried you reset button functionality but isn’t working for me.

@Robert_Petitto and @Santiago_Perez1

I think an option like this would be enough to create a reset button able to work with any column:

We need to have a reset button or clear button to this kind of things, do it manually is quit difficult so far and no script can be used if these values come from user-specific columns.

@Mark, is there any chance or idea to carry out this improvement within the Increment Action?

Gracias y saludos a todos!.


I like that idea. The app I’m working on would do wonders with that option.

Thanks @gvalero for thinking about it.
