Transfer App to another Account

i’ve created an app at work to test Glide with my proffessional email address. This app is not needed at work, but i want to continue it later at home.
How can i transfer my app from my proffessional Google account to my private Google account?

thanks in advance


The easiest way would be to go into your app , under privacy, turn on “allow anybody to copy app…”. Then go to the url of your app in s computer browser at home and click on the copy template button that shows on the screen. Once you have copied the app, you can turn off the allow copy on the original version.

Thank you Jeff Hager! This is what i was looking for.

When I do this I have a error

Could you share the app you get the error with, please?

I’ve only had time to look at it for a moment, but the reason might be that there is too much data in your spreadsheet. If you have lots of data in your spreadsheet that your app is not using, could you remove that?

ok, I do that.
Also one more thing, At present this application is as per old T&C, i.e. unlimited Data Rows. If change the ownership What Happen? i.e. Limit to 500 Data rows or unlimited…?

Copies of your app will be subject to the 500 row limit.

But why it is not copying app scripts from original file

Glide doesn’t see or have any control over your scripts. All it can do it copy all of the data, make a new sheet in a new user’s account, then fill it with the data it copied. This is quite different to how Google makes copies of sheets.

Scripts are attached to a sheet. I don’t think they are necessarily part of a sheet. I think you can make a copy within Google drive, and it may copy everything, but that’s Google making a copy of a Google product. Not a third party trying to make a copy. It’s a completely different process and Google has more access to itself than it would ever allow to third parties.

I think it’s not of a limitation that google imposes and Glide can only do so much with these limitations.
