Is there a plan to add versioning? It now happened twice that I’ve lost all the details of one screen that takes to individual screens and I had to do the work all over again, spent a couple of hours restoring all this. It is unclear why this happened, but it could be related to me changing the tab title. Versioning would help a lot.
+1 desire for versioning. Because I made a mistake when making some major changes and lost something – I never figured out what I lost – I’ve had spend several nervous hours recreating work that I had done before.
Do you mean saving drafts of your app as you work on it?
Not a perfect solution, but occasionally I will make a duplicate of my app, so I at least have a backup to refer to if absolutely needed. A native solution would be better though.
As for my sheet, I have a script that makes a backup copy weekly, so I can restore data if it’s ever lost.
Google sheets have versioning so no need to make a backup copy @Jeff_Hager, that said you can never be too careful
Yes, from time to time the app should take a snap shot of your work and save it. This is pretty common practice in many apps, for example: Word Press, Google docs, Google sheets, etc. If something goes wrong, you can go back to the version that is the closest to where you were before things fall apart @Jen_NYCP
Yeah, I’ve definitely referred to the google sheet version history a few times, but it can be painful to parse through if the sheet has a lot of updates, or background refresh is turned on, which can make a version history ever few minutes. But yes, like you said, can’t be too careful. I like that I can quickly look back at what the sheet looked like for a given week, up to a year and a half ago when I created the sheet and script. And I just feel better knowing there is a separate timestamped copy of the sheet that’s separate from the main sheet if anything ever happens to it. It’s the developer mindset in me.
What is the backup script like?
You can check out this thread.
This is what I use.
OK. I had a version (V1) of my app that worked. I wanted to make some changes, so I created a copy of my app (V2) to make sure I had a saved copy before I started to change things.
Now, I have successfully made the changes and everything works as I want in V2.
How do I cleanup and delete V1? I searched both Glide help as well as Googled “glide delete app” with no clear answers.
