An app for a marketing team to access customer case studies on and offline.
The Marketing Docs app is a powerful way to distribute information to a core group of people and keep the latest version of it available to them without having to manage complex workflows. The purpose of the app is to show case studies for a set of customers of a cloud storage service. The "TM Applicant" tab shows information by customer logo; the "Gallery" tab shows a list of the same customers available for quicker access. Both views show the same data: Name of the customer, and a link to the case study in PDF form.

How we built this app
We built this app in just a few minutes by keeping a simple list of customer names, links to icons, and a list of filenames pointing to the location of the PDF file with the case study. This app showcases some of AppSheet's most powerful features for automatically built apps: 1. When a filename points to an image or PDF document, AppSheet creates the appropriate action for it. If AppSheet identifies an image, it treats the column as an image and adds an image gallery to the app for richer user experience. If it identifies PDF documents, it creates a document icon and places it in the app for quicker reference. 2. Offline Content Caching. We can mark apps to download a copy of the app for offline use. This comes in handy when using the app in places with spotty connectivity. As this option can potentially consume lots of data, it's turned-off by default.
