How we built this app
App Launchers have three types of columns: [TEXT] This is how we write the name of the column you want to display in the app [THUMBNAIL] How we show the app icon [APP] Special column tap that, when provided with an AppSheet app name, will open the app. The user of the app still needs to have access to the app to be able to use it. App Launchers are a powerful way of distributing AppSheet apps to companies. IT Managers can use app launcher to group all services to their internal users and simply replace the app names when new versions of the apps are deployed. App Launchers are also a quick way to limit access to app content by simply removing the link to the app in the launcher.
