Dear Glide Community,
I am totally fascinated by how quickly I can build an app with Glide with little prior knowledge. Right now I am working on a meditation app that counts how many minutes a person has already meditated. I am currently solving this very cumbersome via Google Sheets functions that I add up all completed meditations of a person in a profile column, which are stored in another spreadsheet, via VLOOKUP. However, this causes the Google Sheet to take a lot of computing time. I am therefore looking for alternatives.
I would prefer to use the “Increment” glide function: When a meditation is completed, I would like to increase the sum of the accumulated minutes in the user’s profile. Unfortunately, this does not work as I had hoped, since I can only increment the columns of the meditation spreadsheet, but not the columns of the profile spreadsheet. Am I missing something in the increment function? How could I use it better?
Thanks a lot for your help.
