How we built this app
In this app, we've got four tables: - People - Places - Things - Menu People, Places, and Things are just plain data tables. Menu is a table associating view names with icons. We first created a gallery view for our Menu table. This is our "Home" view in the center button position. Next, we created a Go To View action on the Menu table that uses a LINKTOVIEW([Name]) formula to create a link to the particular view in the menu. Lastly, we set the "Row Selected" event on our gallery view to call the Go To View action.
