Choosing a Subscription Plan

Initially, your account is on the free plan. You can remain on the free plan while you build and test your app. All AppSheet features work on the free plan. We encourage you to try all AppSheet features and build the ideal app for your needs. You can remain on the free plan if your app is for personal use and no one else uses it. Once you finish testing your app and you deploy it to other people, you must enroll in a subscription plan.

1. First, decide whether you need a Secure or a Public plan

Choose a Secure plan if:

  1. 1. You need to restrict app access to particular people. Apps intended for members of a team or employees of a company usually need a Secure plan.
  2. 2. Your app uses confidential data. Apps that use personal, group, or company data that you do not want to share publicly need a Secure plan.
  3. 3. You need to customize the behavior of the app based on the specific user.
  4. 4. Your app uses Private Tables.
  5. 5. You need to maintain an audit trail of which users access your app.

Choose a Public plan if:

  1. 1. You do not need to restrict app access to particular people. For example, your app may be intended for a public event, a public survey, a city guide, or a restaurant menu. People may use such apps occasionally rather than repeatedly. Or you app may be intended for use by anyone outside your organization. In these cases you want your app to be used by as many people as possible and you do not want to restrict access to particular people.
  2. 2. Your app uses absolutely no confidential data.
  3. 3. You do not need to customize the behavior of the app based on the specific user.

2. Next, decide which level of Secure or a Public plan you need

If you chose a Secure plan:

Choose between the Standard, Premium, or Pro Secure plans. These plans differ based on their features and their supported data sources as shown in the grid above. You can determine the right plan by simply using the features you want and letting the system detect the minimum required plan. Do this by going to the "Account" > "App Info" pane. Broadly speaking, the Standard plan is an introductory plan for simple apps, the Premium plan is usually the best choice for functionality and performance, while the Pro plan provides deeper analytics, monitoring, and enterprise data sources.

If you chose a Public plan:

Choose between the Publisher or Publisher Plus Public plans. These plans differ based on their number of allowed users, their features, and their supported data sources as shown in the grid above. You can determine the right plan by simply using the features you want and letting the system detect the minimum required plan. Do this by going to the "Account" > "App Info" pane. Broadly speaking, the Publisher plan is suitable for small-scale apps and the Publisher Plus plan is suitable for larger-scale apps.

3. Finally, decide the number of licenses you need

If you chose a Secure plan:

Select the number of user licenses by summing up the number of unique app users across all your deployed apps. For example, if you are deploying one app to 10 employees and another app to a different set of 5 employees, purchase 15 licenses. On the other hand, if your company has 10 employees, you can purchase 10 licenses and build any number of apps. Make certain that you set the "Require user authentication" option on the "Security" > "Require Sign-In" pane for each of your applications. If you fail to do this, we are reduced to counting every device that launches the app as a separate "guest" user.

If you chose a Public plan:

Purchase one app license for each deployed app. For example, if your account has one deployed app, purchase one app license. If your account has three deployed apps, purchase three app licenses.

*All plans include these powerful features

Enrolling in a Subscription Plan

After you choose your subscription plan, as described above, you can enroll in that plan.


To enroll in a subscription plan:

  1. 1. Go to the Account > Billing pane.
  2. 2. Enter your credit card information. We encourage you to pay via credit card. However, if you must pay by bank draft, please contact support@appsheet.com.
  3. 3. Select either Secure or Public.
  4. 4. Select the subscription plan.
  5. 5. Specify the number of licenses.
  6. 6. If you are a non-profit enter your Promo code. To learn about non-profit discounts see educational and non-profit organizations.
  7. 7. When you click "Save Changes" your enrollment will take effect immediately.

We never enroll you in a subscription plan, change your subscription plan, or automatically add charges based on app usage. Only you can change your subscription plan. That keeps you in control.


Your entire account and all the apps in it are covered by one subscription plan. If you have some apps that need a Secure plan and others that need a Public plan, please create two separate AppSheet accounts. Put the apps that need a Secure plan in one account and the apps that need a Public plan in the other account. You can move apps between accounts as described here.

Changing Your Subscription Plan


You can change your subscription plan when circumstances change. For example, you can upgrade your subscription plan if you enhance your app to use more advanced features or you start using an advanced data provider.


You can change your subscription plan at any time by going to the Account > Billing pane. Your subscription plan change takes effect immediately. Charges are pro-rated and applied to your next monthly bill. If a change lowers your charge, we credit you the difference between the old and new rates, prorated from the date you made the change until your next regularly scheduled billing date. If a change raises your charge, we charge you the difference between the old and new rates, prorated from the date you made the change until your next regularly scheduled billing date.


If you make a subscription plan change that raises your charge, your next regularly scheduled bill will be higher than normal, because of the prorated change. All subsequent regularly scheduled bills will be at the normal rate. For example, assume your original subscription plan is $10 per month and your regular billing date is the 5th of each month. Assume your new subscription plan is $20 per month and you make the subscription plan change on the 20th of the month. The proration time is the 15 day period between the 20th (when you made the subscription plan change) until your next regular billing date on the 5th. The proration amount is the $10 difference between the new and old subscription plans. This resulting prorated charge for the month when you made the subscription plan change is $5. Your charge at your next regular billing date is $25. This includes both your new billing charge of $20 for the next month and the $5 prorated charge from the previous month. All subsequent bills will be at the expected rate of $20 per month. If you make two or more billing changes during a billing period, each change will be prorated as described above.

Intermittent Subscription Plan


If your app is used intermittently, you can enroll in a subscription plan while using the app and enroll in the Free plan while not using the app. For example, a student enrollment app may only be used for the first month of each school quarter. An app for a one-time-event may only be used for the duration of the event.


After enrolling in the free plan you must either "Pause" your app or return it to "Prototype state".


To Pause your app:

  1. 1. Go to the Manage > Deploy pane.
  2. 2. Click "Pause app".

To Return your app to "Prototype State":

  1. 1. Go to the Manage > Deploy pane.
  2. 2. Click "Deployment Check".
  3. 3. Click "Return app to Prototype state".

Deleting or Deactivating Your Account


You can deactivate or delete your account at any time.

  • If you deactivate your account: Billing will stop, your applications will be preserved, and you can resume using AppSheet later.
  • If you delete your account: Billing will stop, your applications will be discarded, and your account will be deleted.


To Deactivate your account:

  1. 1. Go to the Account > Billing pane.
  2. 2. Click "Change".
  3. 3. In the "Plan Class" drop down select "Free".
  4. 4. Click "Save Changes".
  5. 5. Confirm the change.
  6. 6. Please let us know how we can improve. We value your feedback.

To Delete your account:

  1. 1. Go to the Account > Settings pane.
  2. 2. Click "Delete my account" at the bottom of the pane.

FAQ

What can I do for free?

Use the free plan to prototype your apps. You can use all data sources and all platform features while the app is in testing mode. When your app prototype is ready for deployment; mark your app as ready for deployment and go to Account>Billing to purchase the right subscription plan.

When should I switch to a paid subscription plan?

When your app leaves the prototype/testing phase and is being put to use in a real environment, you should sign up for an appropriate subscription plan.

How do you distinguish between prototypes and deployable apps?

The Manage section of the app editor lets you run a deployment check which will highlight any issues with the app. In that pane, you can move an app between Deployed and Prototype states.

Do you "shut off" features unless I am on a paid plan?

No. We encourage you to try out all the features of the platform in the prototype phase, and build the ideal app for your needs.

How can I set up my subscription plan?

Go to the Account -> Billing pane, and first provide a credit card. Then choose the appropriate plan class (Secure or Public), the specific plan, and the number of licenses for your plan.

Can I change my plan at any time?

Yes, you can change your plan or number of licenses at any time, even switch back to Free if your app is not going to be in use for a certain period of time. Your charges are pro-rated. If a plan change lowers your charge, you will have a credit applied to your next monthly bill.

How often do you bill?

Either monthly or annually based on the plan you choose.

Why was my credit card payment declined?

If you reside outside the United States, your payment may have been declined because your bank blocks foreign charges. Please check with the bank that issued the card.

Can I pay by bank draft?

We encourage you to pay via credit card. However, if need to pay by bank draft, please contact support@appsheet.com and we can send you the details.

Where can I see my invoices?

You will be automatically emailed an invoice every time your credit card is charged. Additionally, all prior invoices can be accessed on your Account -> Billing page. Open an invoice and use the browser print function to get a printed invoice. If you want the invoice to include more details about your organization, please send us the relevant information and we can include it.

What subscription plan is needed to distribute whitelabel apps through the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store

You need at least 10 Secure "Pro" licenses or 1 Public "Publisher Pro" license.

Can I have some apps on a Secure plan and some apps on a Public plan?

Your entire account runs under one plan that covers all the apps in it. Most customers are either focused on business internal apps (Secure plans work well) or on customer-facing apps (Public plans work well). If you need both, create two separate AppSheet accounts.

How do you count app users?

If your app requires users to sign-in and a user whitelist is provided, each email in the list is counted as an app user. If the app doesn't require sign-in, we count every device that launches the app as a separate user. Each signed-in user can use the app on as many as five devices. For example, a user with the email jane@example.com uses an AppSheet app that requires sign-in. When Jane uses the app on her smartphone, desktop, and tablet, it still counts as one user. If the app didn't require sign-in, then it would count as three distinct 'guest' users.

When do you count app users?

We record the number of app users continiously, and apply the counts over a trailing 30-day period for the purposes of licensing.

Where can I see and understand my app usage?

The Manage -> Monitor pane in the app editor shows the usage statistics for one specific app. In your Account -> App Info pane, you can also see a summary of app usage across all of your apps.

Do you automatically charge based on usage?

No, we only charge exactly what you ask us to charge via the Account>Billing page. We do not automatically add charges based on usage. Our usage reporting and account alerting is information that helps you move to the appropriate plan.

What happens if my app usage temporarily exceeds the plan limits or I am temporarily on the wrong plan?

You will see an account alert and may receive email reminders to update your subscription. However, your apps will continue to run without interruption. We only block functionality in very rare cases (eg: continued payment failures, egregious violation of license counts, etc).

I work for a non-profit. Is there a discount?

Yes, we offer a discount for educational and non-profit organizations.
