The best advice I think I can give is to study the below document, and think about how it might apply to your App:
I guess the most common thing that might contribute to a large update count is the use of User Specific Columns when used with custom filters, and to a lesser extent - custom forms. If you use either of those in your App, there is a chance they might be a contributing factor.
just a think/question about sequence:
in app added a row = 1 update
it’s sync to google sheet = 0 update
in google sheet appear data in column with arrayformula = 1 updates in case of sync from google to glide. right?
other case: in google sheet with a lot of data we made a new column with arrayformula - how much updates it take? just one or it will be equal a cuantity of rows?
Good video! get some idea.
but it can’t replace all formulas in google.
as i understand: if in google appear just one formula - then doesent matter how many they exist. 1 or 10 - all sheet calculated once and it mean 1 sync to glide.
