Link between two apps

Hi Glider,

Hope you all good,
Is there any possibility to link or sync between two apps that I made?
For example,

My first app is “Rental Tracking”. In Rental tracking there must be a list of machine and a few features that i made like “To service” and others.

My second app is “Pre-Delivery Inspection”.

I need if my user edit or add anything in first app it must be showing in second apps.

If you want two different apps to share the same data, then the easiest way is to use the same Google Spreadsheet for both.

If they aren’t using the same Google Spreadsheet, then you can move data between the two spreadsheets, so that one app has a read only copy of data from the other app. The easiest way to do this is with the IMPORTRANGE() function.

Easy! I do this for some of my apps. The simplest way is to point both apps at the same G Sheet. That way the connection is instantaneous. The other way is to IMPORTRANGE between Gsheets (or similar). And I think you can link Glide Tables together too.

That’s not i mean, hm i mean the interface itself. the screen and all the components. :frowning:

Right. Okay, that’s not possible. You’d need to rebuild the components in the 2nd app.

Or… you could make a copy of the first app, then modify that copy.

But what if doing relation but between two apps?
Possible?

No, that doesn’t really make sense.

Two separate apps can share the same data, but they cannot share the same computed columns. So you can’t share things like relations, lookups, rollups, etc. All of these types of columns are dynamically created on each users device, so they are specific to both the app and the user.
