How we built this app
We created this app adding three tables from the same spreadsheet. We made sure each table pointed to a different sheet by adding the name of the sheet when we added the table via Advanced Editor>Data>Tables>+Table>Worksheet Name/Qualifier. All tables are set up this way: 1. The Title column contains the name of each step, while the Description column contains the actual instructions on how to perform the step. 2. The Image column automatically activated the Image Field Type in the Editor and the app. In this case, images are being rendered via publicly hosted URLs. Images can also be rendered with a filename that exactly matches the filename in the app’s folder in the cloud provider. 3. The Deck view works perfectly for this scenario as it displays steps and the associated images in the order in which they’re intended to be performed. All tables in the app were marked as READ-ONLY so the app user gets to see the contents but is not able to edit, add, or delete any data. Copy this app for FREE and replace it with your own training data.
