I am new to Glide and development in general, I have in mind to create what I think should be a simple app and looking for guidance before I dive in.
I want to create an app related to my hobby of target shooting, each month we have to set out 30 targets of varying specifications; target size, distance and position, (ie prone, kneeling standing etc) The rules require that only a certain number and combination can be prepared. So my app will calculate and display the number of targets prepared and the number of sizes and distances etc.
I have written a very simple Googlesheet that deals with this very well, but we all know that a mobile app will be much more fun.
So it’s just a very simple calculator that displays the summaries on the right.
In terms of real estate on the mobile screen I guess it’s a problem that we have to have 1 - 30 columns.
Columns B and C can be selections (drop downs) Column D is free text.
I’ll be very grateful for any guidance on how to create this in Glide.
I have made some improvements to the spreadsheet since you last looked.
Am I correct in saying that this is just used for preparing the targets, and ensuring the targets prepared fall within certain limits/guidelines? (but it’s not used for entering or tabulating actual results?)
Would you want to keep a historical record, or would you wipe the slate clean and start again each time?
That’s brilliant, thank you so much. That certainly does give me ahead start, it would have taken me ages to get this far. I will have to watch the video in more detail to fully understand what you did and try it for myself
Thanks for the video and sorry for the delay of 3 months, I have finished a contract so I now have some time to look at this in more detail.
I have replicated what you created for me on the video, but I want to know if it is possible to display the 4 items of data we are gathering; Peg number, Kill Size, Position and Distance. Right now it appears to be limited to 3 items; Title, Description and meta
Not sure what column type you used there or how you created it but that’s definitely not a Template column. Looks like a Make Array column??? You definitely don’t want any kind of array column. A Template column is a type of column that returns a single text value comprised of other columns values mixed with other text.
