As far as I can see, something has changed in relation to User Signup, that makes onboarding unworkable. I saw this in a new app and reported yesterday. Support have not confirmed anything as yet. Today I tried creating another new app from scratch and I see the identical issue. However it does not appear to be affecting existing apps.
The app in question is Public Pro and uses a “sign in” action on a button to allow a user to register for access to additional functionality. They hit the sign in button, enter their email and receive a PIN, all in the tried and tested fashion. Once the PIN is received in their email they return to the app to enter it. They then onboard as see some exclusive content.
However, with my recent apps, whilst they enter the PIN and a row immediately appears in the User Profile Google Sheet, that same row does not also appear in the GDE. There is a very significant delay, certainly many minutes. This means that user onboarding cannot progress because there is no row for the app to associate with the various components e.g name, photo etc. If I re-sync from the GDE then the row appears immediately and the app becomes usable.
Here is a video link that demonstrates the issue:
At the same time I have noticed very long delays before PIN numbers are delivered, again only with recent apps and not established ones.
I have existing live apps with customers that are using the same mechanism but do not seem to exhibit the issue thankfully. The new user row appears almost instantaneously in the Google Sheet and the GDE. However I am concerned that (a) they may start to exhibit if I modify them and (b) I cannot get my new demo apps out to potential customers.
Anybody else seeing this too?
