What is AppSheet?

Acquired by Google in Spring 2020, AppSheet is an intelligent, no-code app platform for everyone. Users can create apps to transform the workplace.

Common use cases include field service, transportation, customer surveys, incident reports, field data capture, compliance reports, delivery tracking, and property surveys.

Used by the Fortune 500 & Industry Leaders
Customers include Clearlink, Enterprise Holdings, ESPN, Pepsi, the University of Michigan, and the State of Colorado.

AppSheet allows users to build a No Code App in 4 Ways
1) Connect your data sources (e.g. Excel, Google Sheets, SQL, etc.).
2) Copy a sample app.
3) Use an Add-On for Google Sheets, Forms, or Excel.
4) Start from SPEC, our natural language declarative programming tool.

The vendor says AppSheet is useful if you:
1) Require a custom mobile app to brand and distribute to employees, colleagues, or customers
2) Are not a software developer
3) Work on a phone or tablet to capture information
4) Are part of a team that needs to work seamlessly offline and online
5) Want the app to have rich functionality
6) Like the power of building and deploying a custom mobile app in minutes
7) Want to be able to work offline and sync to cloud when connected

We use AppSheet to capture data that falls off the grid and build new products that can be offered to customers. AppSheet is being used to capture, measure and manage data that is not currently recorded by our enterprise resource planning solution. What's even better is that the data is easily made available to our users in a very secure way and can also be visualized by other applications such as Looker. AppSheet facilitates Rapid Architected Application Development, which in turn gives the orginzation the ability to respond to changes in the environment and build new products. This is especially true in the areas of property management, logistics management and talent management.
  • Capture data in real time via a mobile device
  • Share data in a very secure manner
  • An open architecture that allows the integration of other applications
  • Audit usage of any newly built application
  • Ease of access, device independent.
  • Voice assistant has to start working so that users can talk instead of type
  • Allow generative AI to train on the data captured by AppSheet so that new insights can be quickly delivered to decision makers
  • Integrate AppSheet into established dashboard applications so that it's one seemless product.
Any property management business based requirement is easily met with AppSheet.

Google's AppSheet is a great tool for organizing the entire Compliance area, in addition to being an incredible support for establishing metrics. The tool is comprehensive, capable of not only controlling valuable analysis information in the area but also creating automated dashboards and email flows from it. All of this can be done with minimal programming. My goal is to continuously improve my knowledge to understand all of its functionalities better.
  • Information Control
  • Metrics
  • Dashboard
  • Flow
  • Understand and have access of the Functions and Codes (like if, sum, etc) - difficult to find information
  • ID - Difficult to put an ID +1 the information before. When I did it, it wasn't possible to create a column with information from another
  • Chart - difficult to create charts of %, not possible to change the columns of different color, when you change the order from the dashboard, it doesnt save, cannot create a pizza graph
AppSheet is perfect for supporting an area of a company that doesn't have many resources available in IT/Programming. Its goal is amazing, as it aims to create a product without the need to know programming - although it's necessary when creating some specific functions. You can create everything from information/analysis control, with all the questions/information you want, to automated charts, dashboards, email alerts, and even payments.
As an improvement point, I would say it would be important to have an easier communication channel to learn how to use the platform masterfully.

We have used AppSheet extensively in our business. We built apps to manage insurance claims (processing over $77M in claim payments), audit claims, audit underwriting processes, handle new claim intake, manage compliance tasks, track product changes, respond to fixes and enhancements, etc. Using AppSheet we can make enhancements to our processes quickly and do so at an affordable cost.
  • Price
  • Ease of use
  • Scope of functionality
  • Fosters a vibrant community
  • App documentation
  • Provide more options for customizing the user interface.
  • Move enhancements more quickly to production ready status. Some enhancements are stuck in "preview" for too long.
  • Continue to work on making the experience intuitive for no-coders.
Great for internal app use. Not as great for public use, but this is an area we would also like to use AppSheet more. An excellent tool to use at smaller companies that benefit from being nimble, cost efficient, and able to customize their solutions for their customers.

AppSheet is primarily used for status tracking and project management type of use cases. It primarily involves working with simple data which is otherwise stored in excel sheets or google sheets, etc. To overcome the problems associated with storing the data in sheets, AppSheet is being increasingly used in our organization. It can cater to multiple use cases from what I understand.
  • It's fairly easy to build the app
  • Efficient to use for relatively less complex use cases
  • Does not require lot of maintenance
  • Ability to add more types of dashboards/charts
  • creating custom fields to build dashboards/charts
AppSheet is less suited for scenarios where complex calculations / number crunching etc. is involved. Already answered where it is better suited.

With only 1 year experience of using AppSheet in my daily ERP need of managing the business I'm totally in love this platform: easy to create and use, a bit more complex in terms of more advance UX or data display's need - but with our current modest SME operating module, AppSheet delivers great results (especially with their latest move offering it free for Google Workspace Users).
  • Useful Community with instant help / advices
  • Lots of samples for beginners to play with
  • Proactive Help Desk
  • Video Display
  • Calendar Display can be more clear / detail
Suitable:
- SME, moderate team.
- Lots of field works.
- High turn over rate.
- Many different departments / small groups require lots of team work
Note suitable:
- Big companies with huge users.
- Complex UX / information display needed
- Too much confidential protocol required for internal data protection

  • Easy to understand for medium users
  • Best choice for rapid app development and implementation

We used to have lots of spreadsheets until I found out about AppSheet. I accidentally saw "create an app" on my google sheets and decided to click on it. Then I started to explore and I saw an excellent opportunity to integrate the many departments and I solved the inventory problem we had. Since then I've been creating solutions to track and organize our tasks and work daily routine.
  • Display data in a more friendly way
  • Simple and intuitive, easy to learn
  • Create fast automations
  • Improve user interface
  • Working with files still needs some workaround for specific routines
  • Views such as kanban, gant and more button options missing
  • AppSheet could charge only owner and admin users
It is hightly indicated for internal business management. It is less appropriate when you have many users

Inventory management and providing a user/mobile-friendly interface for colleagues in the field.
  • User-friendly (Developing and End-user side)
  • Ultra-fast creation of an app out of a g-sheet
  • Zero bugs
  • Super useful small details (e.g. Bar/QR-code scanner)
  • Simple text/image/video pages which could be easily stored in a g-sheet/g-slide (e.g. training material)
  • User specific access (e.g. define access to certain parts of the DB based)
  • The automation part is too complicated for me (it might be actually counter-intuitive or it might need better documentation/training)
  • Embedding G-forms directly in the app
Inventory management is perfect. Defining users' access levels is almost impossible (for me).

I have a problem with data recollecting in the field, and i learn to use AppSheet to solve this problem creating AppSheets for a diverse kind of tasks, like sugarcane planting , sugarcane harvesting, sprays and sugarcane fertilization. I like a lot AppSheet and it's flexibility to create apps for diverses tasks without knows in programing. I use the data recollecting by the app to make some graphics.
  • flexibility
  • accesibility
  • speed
  • Icons and details in UX could be better
AppSheet, based in my short experience, could be appropriate in cases where you need to recollect data from users or employees. AppSheet allows you to work with diverse kind of data and diverse kind of industry. I use it for digitalize field data in a spreadsheet and automatize graphics in data studio or power BI.

I used the AppSheet as a means to simplify process operation I am assigned with. Currently, one process that I am involved is having to use emails and printed documents for filling up and signatories. Through AppSheet, not only I have translated this process into an app, but also developed it in such a way that it saves time and resources and simplified the monitoring of the particular task.
  • Better Monitoring
  • Easy to create and start an app
  • Translates manual tasks into automated bots
  • Maybe we can use the automated email on bots for free :P
It is very helpful in automating and digitizing processes that are physical document heavy because it takes a lot of time for physical documents to circulate around. I have not yet seen the full potential of AppSheet, so I still can't comment on what scenarios or projects in which it is less appropriate.

Appsheet really helps simplify complex tasks. Appsheet helped me in prototyping a near-perfect application. Thank you Appsheet
  • create apps without/minimal coding
  • easily use
  • easily to update apps prototype
  • improve lookup search
  • advance report manager
  • different font format
  • extracted code
  • more ux feature
I use Appsheet as a tool for making sample applications which will later be developed further. But sometimes, with Appsheet is also enough for my partner. I like to use Appsheet because it's easy, simple and can be connected to a cloud database. This makes the application that I build closer to perfection.

We have primarily used AppSheet for collecting data from the field using forms. Two of our student interns created an equipment survey form with over 20 fields (columns) and collected data from over 4000 pieces of equipment. AppSheet solved our business problem of creating dependent dropdown options in forms and made collecting, processing, and managing data easier. We have already identified 3 more use cases for AppSheets in different on-site and data processing applications, and hope to use them extensively going forward, perhaps with an organizational-wide audience!
  • Dependent dropdowns!
  • Image file storing and managing
  • Automated processing of data formats
  • Storing records within the app
  • Allow creation of image link automatically in Drive
AppSheet is well suited for creating survey and field inspection forms. Haven't used it much beyond it.

AppSheet is one of the biggest enablers for a small business like ours. We have gone paperless on the key aspects of Education Management for an Art School for children that we manage. e.g. We went beyond taking Attendance as Present/Absent/Tardy etc and included Work done in the class as a key parameter. This enables the teachers to monitor progress as she/he enter attendance. Stock Management, Slot Management, Uploading Completed Work into a Gallery, etc are some of the best uses that we have had so far. I can't stop thanking the team for having created this Intuitive gem of a platform. BTW, I have tried PowerApps, Caspio, etc, and could not go beyond one day of use because am hooked to the simplicity, intuitiveness, and overall "awesomeness" of AppSheet. Moreover, community support is the other positive. You get all the answers. You get to see new feature requests being addressed, clean workarounds, etc. Overall, really really pleased with it.
  • Quick to setup.
  • Simple to use.
  • Works on multiple platforms on the go.
  • Great documentation and support.
  • Allows one to be really creative.
  • Once the tables / UX Views get way too many in number, it can become a little daunting to manage. This part of the UX may need something really smarter.
  • Ability to Undo.
  • Could provide more UI Look and Feel options. BTW, the new Graphs look great, but have some bugs, while the new INPUT() feature is a great addition too.
AppSheet in my opinion is a great enabler, especially for small businesses. Am not too sure about Scaling up though. As such, I did not find it limiting as far as my needs were concerned so far. Licensing could be made more affordable for countries like India. There could be more slabs e.g. Let's say 10-15 people company could be asked to pay lesser than the fee for 15-20.

I started using Appsheet 02 years ago. Basically, I developed a customized application within this platform that allows me to record the activities and information corresponding to the company in which I am currently working.

In short, the application is responsible for:
Registering users and their personal and professional characteristics.
Defining physical zones of the workplace (in this case, a floating dry dock).
Defining the departments that the company has to carry out the different tasks related to keeping the workplace operational (in this case, a floating dry dock).
Defining the systems that make up the workplace and allow its different activities (electrical, mechanical, lifting, anchoring, etc., etc.).
Logbook that allows each employee to update their personal information from their cell phone, record their daily tasks and send a report to their supervisors.
Report creation.
Inventory registration in warehouses.
Presentation of documents to the staff that works within the facilities.
Record of the work carried out for the different clients (In this case, maintenance work on ships).
And many more activities.
  • Trustworthy
  • Easy to use.
  • Adaptable
  • More display options in the presentation to the end user of the apps.
  • It should be possible, to generate a standard app that can be sold massively in white.
Suitable for database work. Access controller for personnel, products, sales, distribution, etc. Not suitable for applications that require visual and graphic demands. There are graphically interactive applications that have buttons or action gestures that are not common. It should be possible, to create the App. Remove information relevant to the specific company or business for which the App was generated. And then be able to share it with other similar businesses independently.

Best about Appshet whose those who don't have technical background can also be able to create a workflow from Excel data or Salesforce Data or any API request from the server just click away. It is used across CMT, Insurance portfolios. The mundane and repetitive tasks with pre-defined rules achieves the process.
  • Salesforce Intergration
  • Google Sheets Plugin
  • Outlook 365
  • Web application
  • Database- SQL,MySQL
  • WebApplication integration- Scrapping, OCR
  • Machine Language and NLP
  • Orchestrator missing to monitor robots logs
Simple Excel data can be imported to the App sheet and then customize column make as it workflow with the predefined rule. With Mobile and Tablet Preview, which makes Appsheet Standalone

We are developing various rapid prototypes and variants for a planned mobile app.
  • I can keep my test data in Google Spreadsheets.
  • AppSheet does a good job creating a first "raw" skeleton of a prototype app.
  • If you name your data fields in a good way, AppSheet will correctly guess many of your intentions and create some basic infrastructure and artifacts that will save you time.
  • AppSheet has enough configuration capabilities to turn a prototype into an "alpha version" of an app that you can use for demos to colleagues etc.
  • AppSheet primarily assumes data are in RDBMS/SQL systems, but it should be technically possible and certainly desirable to keep data in a hybrid data store, e.g. GOOGLE Firebase collections, if/when these are modeled similar to RDBMS tables. (Maybe this is already possible, but it was not obvious to me.)
  • The views, esp. "deck" and "card" views, should offer more layout configurations.
  • It would help a lot if the "Data" and "UX" menu items would allow a tree-like grouping of the objects.
Suited: Rapid prototyping of hybrid mobile apps that are primarily data apps. Less suited: Apps that must be sophisticated in layouts and visuals from day 1.

I currently develop Covid19 related applications to assist with the response to the spread of the virus. My team uses the apps to report on Covid19 activities, especially in public schools and public transport.
  • Allowing me to have a working app in minutes
  • Assistance with difficult items on the forums
  • ability to download my data easily through google drive
  • The back office reporting, things like creation of dashboards for specific users
If you are using any other license that is not enterprise, it's not suitable for sensitive data, as you can use your secure organization's infrastructure to store the data

AppSheet has allowed me to simply create a work order app for the Syrian Shrine Cincinnati non-profit organization which helps them to manage a small group of guys that work to keep the facility maintained. It was simple to implement and deploy to the 5-8 users that will use it regularly.
  • Keep the process simple for non-tech users.
  • Provides great documentation and user support.
  • Offers plans that don't cost a lot for very small groups needing a solution.
  • Help with how the end-user gets the app to use.

I have a big problem with "beer keg" management. Certainly, there have already been losses of this company's assets. The idea with the Appsheet is to track these barrels on customers through data such as status, location, and date. I just finished the application and already tested it, but I still want to test some more possible features. Anyway, many thanks to Appsheet for giving me this feat!
  • Reference between tables
  • Map View
  • Dashboard (Chart View)
  • Action button
  • Behavior
  • Sync
  • Better detail the formulas for making great references.
  • Have more flexible design tools.
  • Improve or integrate the production of the logo of the app produced with google drawings.
  • Low-Code Development apps with great usability impact.
I recommend the Appsheet as I see it as a very powerful tool that can integrate information that is very relevant for increasing productivity. With the organization management of any type of activity, whether technical or organizational.

  • Built human resource management app
  • Build field sale management app
  • AppSheet can help small and medium company improve work process however it need to improve more on user interface, sync speed
AppSheet is suitable for small and medium scale work process about 200 user. If more than that it may be slow. Or if you have more than 100.000 row of data, it could be make the app slow down. So you could use some work around to solve these problem
