Popup or modal?

As long as you have the rich text for the modal you can display it, but it must be a details view.

The image component is for that “x” button.

Ok thanks! But I have to created these modal columns on the homepage sheet? Don’t see how I can bring it over since there is no data to relate.

You can create a relation/single column to relate back to the Modals sheet.

I thought there had to be a common data column between the two for that to happen.

You can create it yourself. Let’s say make a template with the text “Modal” in your “Homepage” sheet.

Then in the Modals sheet, make an If Then Else column. If the “Read” column is True/equals 1 then empty, else Modal.

The relation will automatically default to the first row, use a single matching.

Or if you use a multiple relation, add a single value column to return the first whole row.

OK, so the template code goes on the homepage sheet and not the modal sheet?

After bringing back the right info from Modals you can create the template code in the Homepage sheet.

Still, it’s a bit more complex than building it right on top of the Modals sheet, because now you have to use a set column action on the image component action to write the “Read” value back to the right row on the Modals sheet.

HI Thinh,

Quick Q: could you use this modal/popup to show an advert and revert back to home screen once user closes the modal/popup?


Yes, as you can attach an action to that button, theoretically you can do navigation as you want.

Thanks for the quick response. I was more looking for something that could be called on the opening of the app.

You can’t do an action on the opening of an app. Actions have to be initiated by the user.

You could do it based on elapsed time though. Each time the user dismisses the modal, you can reset a timer, and then use a visibility condition to show the modal again once the elapsed time since the last reset is greater than X.

I’ve used this method to create a “nag” message.


Ok, thanks for clearing that up.
