Hi there, I have worked on updating an event check in app and it’s working quite well. The issue I seem to be running into is there’s a lot of duplicative steps that must be done in order to create and format future events.
Here is the event app demo: https://eventscheck.glideapp.io/
The problems are more of an annoyance rather than any sort of bug. Basically in order to have subsequent event information be fed into the app, I have to select the “Independent screen configuration per item” option under Action, which allows for individual events to be displayed under the proper event (in the connected Google Sheet I have each new event as its own tab).
While I can reconfigure each event screen for each new event, this is a bit of a logistical nightmare.
(For reference, I have the “Independent screen configuration…” option turned OFF for this demo in order for you to see how the tool should work ideally, however that means only one single event is displayed across ALL other event screens, meaning guest data is all the same.)
- Is there perhaps a different, more recommended method to better configure individual events (meaning: not as individual tabs), that will only display current event data within the current event screen?
- Is there a method to save screen configurations as “templates” in order to prevent having to reconfigure subsequent events individually?
For what I mean by configuring screens individually, here is what I would have to reconfigure on each individual event AND one of the guest profiles within each individual event in order for it to display the desirable way:

Any help or feedback would be GREATLY appreciated. LOVE the Glide community!!
