Hi! Thanks first for the help I have received so far, both directly in responses to my posted problems, and indirectly through all the various postings in this community. I am very grateful - it makes Gliding a much less lonely and dramatically more productive process!
Next the app I have is a mostly working prototype. It is designed for networks and associations (think alumni associations, or professional associations). The idea is that is you are in a network you are curious about the people in the network, willing to share your projects and problems, and willing to invest time to help out others.
The app is work in progress. The Chats area worked (using @Robert_Petitto 's template) until the Comments stopped working (screen jumps to log in again… can’t fix it).
I have cards to swipe… which is fun. Depending on the cards, you might get asked for more info, etc.
You can join networks (but not all the functionality I have planned is in yet).
I made an intro video to help Loom | Free Screen & Video Recording Software
And the final thing is that I would love to get a Glide expert to do a code walk-through with me, the Glide and the GSheet part, to see what I am missing, to fix my mistakes, and suggest things to improve.
In the meantime, thanks once again to the community - and to @david and the Glide team. Great stuff
