💬 Updated: Group Chat Template v2!

Correct. I have a user specific Column in the Glide data Editor that’s looking for whether or not the menu is open or close. The first button marks that status as menu open. The other buttons are set with visibility conditions to only show when the menu open status is true. The close button then reverts that status back to closed which hides the other buttons.


Brilliant, fellas! Will give it a shot :grinning:

Is there a christmas wish list that I am unaware of? Are we adding notifications to this one as well?


Great design Robert! I love how you leveraged floating action buttons.

I need cross-platform notifications so unfortunately I can’t use a comment based design.

@Pablo_Miguel_Martine @Robert_Petitto Got it to work using a user specific boolean column. Thanks for the tips! :ok_hand:

@ThinhDinh did you see this?

DId you look at the community messaging app? It does not use comment based design and uses my script notification system.

Yes, thanks, joined the conversation a few days ago :+1:t3:

I noticed that chat messages appear to be added as comments. Is that just using the standard comments component? (along with its constraints)

It is just a comments component. In my opinion, it’s the best component to use that doesn’t add additional rows to your app. Limited to text messaging only though.

Waiting for that chat component :wink:


Well dang! Nice!
I bought the old one…:frowning:

You can download the new one for free. Just revisit the template store.

Can you add the template to another existing app in order to use that feature?

No…sorry, you have to rebuild it.

Okay, thanks. I’ve been trying to figure out how to add something exactly like that for my wedding app, so my bride and I can do private and group chats with our wedding party and some guests possibly. I’m new to glideapps but have been seeing your work and hope to get to that level one day.

Happy to show you HOW it was built so you can do something similar.

Yes that would be great. I will definitely pay for the template or I saw you do a youtube subscription too. But that would be so helpful
