Tulip Office Hours 09MAY2021 [Linked Table Record Placeholders and Using More Functions in Your Apps]

hello all, we’re looking forward to this week’s Office Hours!!

here is the agenda for this week’s Office Hours:

  • May App Competition : for this competition, please share your Apps that make use of interesting UX/UI. whether it’s a clever use of an image as a button, or an interesting way to Transition between steps, we’d like to see how you’re building interfaces in innovative ways.
  • Using Linked Table Records in Apps: Table Records can include Fields to be linked directly to a Record in another Table, we’ll be going over a quick demo on how to add this functionality into Interactive Tables on your Apps.
  • Using the ROUND() Function: The ROUND() function can be used in a number of interesting ways to help perform calculations on your App Variables, join to see how this function can be used in tandem with other Triggers!!

following the demo, we’ll be opening it up to Q&A. if you have questions, add them as comments here below and we’ll address them in the order in which they were received. if you don’t have specific questions, join the session and view how other users are building apps for their shop floor.

please complete one of these forms if you’d like to join Office Hours:

we look forward to seeing you there!!
