I am making an attendance app for my school and we require signatures at pickup. It’s fantastic that GlideApp has digital signatures, but what sets Pages apart from apps is its ability to add multiple inline actions.
Having multi-inline actions in GlideApp WOULD CHANGE THE GAME and I would basically just throw away Appsheet.
Currently, in pages I have 2 actions on each student inline, marking present or absent, which adds a row to my attendance sheet. The goal is to then have another button for sign out, which would pop up and collect a signature.
Right now, I can do the first part in pages and the second part in Apps. It’s driving me nuts to not be able to combine these. (I can in Appsheet, but it’s a far more complicated process.)
ALSO, it would be great to maybe just have a limit on SHOWN actions? Because I only want 2 at a time anyway, but some actions hide based on values and I’d like others to be able to be shown instead of the summary ellipses.
Definitely possible to do it that way. The idea was to not have to open the inline student to mark. Similar to a checkmark system. Otherwise, it requires a lot of back and forth as some of our classes have 45ish students.
ah, I see what you mean. You want to set the status from the Inline List without viewing the details screen.
Okay, so what you could do is modify the action on the Inline List so it toggles the status. Tap it once for Present, tap again for Absent, tap a 3rd time to reset.
If you still needed to be able to tap through to a details screen, perhaps what you could do is have a second inline list with a default show details action, and then use a choice component (or even a floating button) to toggle between the two lists.
Could you use a swipe list with three buttons (Present, Absent, Signature)? Present and Absent would update your table and then signature for collecting the info.
Swiping through 45 students is a lot but you could search by name or organize into smaller lists top to find the child plus you could have a picture of the student as a verification when you get the signature/hand-off the child.
