You can easily add new cells from your Excel spreadsheet to your app at any time. This way you do not need to create a completely new app if small changes to the source file has been made.
New cells are added via the App Designer to the site of the app, which is outlined green in 'Rearrange elements'.
To add a cell to an existing app, open this app via the App Dashboard in the portal and navigate to step 'Design' in the top menu bar.
This is how you add cells to your app:
- In case your app consist of multiple pages, check in 'Rearrange elements' if the desired page is selected. ("Active" pages are outlined green.)
- Click on 'Add cell' in the menu on the left.
- Select the cell from the Excel spreadsheet.
- Click 'Add Cell'.
- You will be automatically redirected to the app preview. You cell is now visible as an item.
The cells must be added individually. A "jump back and forth" between the windows is currently unavoidable.
In the tutorial "Create a license calculator with print functionality" you can learn how to add a new page to the app and fill it with extra cells from the spreadsheet. The full tutorial can be found at this link: https://support.openasapp.net/hc/en-us/articles/207219939.
