🖋️ Display-only components on Add, Edit, and Forms screens

The Favorite component is now a heart rather than a toggle

☑️ Checkbox component

Our Checkbox component is perfect for to-do lists, and it's featured in our new Attendance Tracker template

🎭 Add and Edit screens for the same sheet can use different components

For example, in a directory app you might want to collect all properties when adding a new employee, but only allow editing a few properties.

🖇️ Keep same sheet when duplicating apps

You can now choose whether to keep the same sheet or make a copy when duplicating an app. This is crucial for making 'admin' versions of apps that allow editing.

🖊️ Required entries

Mark editable components on Add, Edit, and Form screens as Required to ensure your apps collect exactly the data they need.

Sort & Filter items in Glide

Alphabetize employees, sort expense reports, create categorized inline collections, without spreadsheet magic and your data remains live and editable
