An app "sketch" --- try it out and give us feedback
We just started a trial of something new that +Tony Fader [AppSheet] and +Sarah Gould [AppSheet] have been working on. If you go to the Info -> Dashboard pane of your app, you'll see a new birds-eye view of your app. We're calling this a "sketch" for now, but really, it is a high-level description of the app.
Please give it a try and let us know what you think. We expect to enhance this significantly in the next few weeks and also make it possible to build apps at this higher-level
Do you want to beta test this app? Check it here

Do not use the LastPass browser extension!!
Heads up --- some of you have complained about horrible app editor performance. And it turns out this is because of the LastPass browser extension. From some Google searching, it seems to be a problem others are complaining about as well. If you can, please disable or uninstall that browser extension. If you must use LastPass, you can exclude the www.appsheet.com site from it.
In any event, if you have an app with many tables and columns, you will be really happy after you disable LastPass.

User Access Control via Active Directory
We've now completed the somewhat painful process of revamping our authentication process for all Office365/OneDrive based accounts. This should have been entirely transparent to all of you, but when you sign in, you are now using a newer Microsoft API for authentication. This also allows us to now rollout support for user access control via Active Directory groups.
In other words, instead of maintaining an explicit whitelist for your app, you can make your app accessible to a group of users maintained centrally by your organization (eg: SalesManagers or MembersOfProjectAlpha or . any other such group)

New Editor Feature: System-generated "Ref" Views
It is now easier to control all the views used in the app. Some of these views (eg: the Detail view used to show a single row, the Form view used to edit/add a row, or the Inline view used to show related rows) have always been implicitly generated by the system. In order to override these, you had to create your own 'Ref' views.
We have now made these implicit system-generated views visible to you and editable by you. On the UX -> Views pane, there is a link at the bottom to show/hide "System Views". So you can easily find and change the views as necessary. This is part of our ongoing effort to increase the level of control provided to the advanced app creator.
This change has already rolled out to all app creators on Free plans and will roll out fully this coming week.
