Your Best Practices, Dos & Don'ts for Newbies, pls? Thks 🙂

Here are a few things off the top of my head:

  • RTFM :wink:
  • Use Column Grouping, it will make your life easier.
  • Devise your own consistent column naming scheme, and stick with it.
  • Find All Uses is your new best friend.
  • Unless you’re absolutely certain that you’ll never need it, always start a new app with a Google Spreadsheet. Edit: This one is no longer important since Glide added the ability to add a Google Spreadsheet to a project at any time.
  • Learn about Glide Computed Columns. Once you understand how to effectively use them you can start unleashing the true power of Glide.
  • Avoid Spreadsheet formulas like the plague. Let go of them, they are holding you back. Except in a very few cases, you don’t need them any more. If you think your formulas are way too complex and can’t possibly be done in Glide, refer to previous point :arrow_up:
  • Always use Custom Actions
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Everybody has been where you are at some point.
  • Don’t be afraid to jump in and answer questions. Helping others find solutions to their problems is a great way to learn. You won’t always get the right answer, but who cares?
  • Be nice to others.
  • RTFM :wink:

I’m sure I could think of a lot more, but that will do for now :slight_smile:
