Add Row

Add a new row to any table in your app.

The Add Row action allows you to add a row to any table in your app.

The Add Row action can be used as an action in the components of your app (like ButtonsCollections, and much more), or it can be triggered along with other actions as part of a Custom Action.

Setting up the Add Row Action

In the Layout Editor

  1. Click on the plus (+) sign in the Components panel and select the Component you want to trigger the action.

  2. In the General tab on the right side of the Layout Editor, navigate to the Actions section and select Add Row.

  3. Select the icon and descriptive text to use in your app, and then choose the Data Source or table you want to add the row to.

  4. Choose the values to add to each column in the row. You can select Column Values or manually enter Custom Values.

  5. You can optionally add Conditions for certain criteria to be met before a user can trigger this action.

In the Action Editor

  1. Select the + New Action button. If you have existing actions, click on the plus (+) sign in the left panel.

  2. Select the Data Source for your action.

  3. Configure your first action by clicking the first action in the sequence. You can also add Conditions to your actions, if needed.

  4. To add new actions to the flow, hover just underneath an action and click the plus button. In this way you can add the Add Row action as just one step in a larger workflow.

Offline Add Row

Business and Enterprise users have the ability to add rows offline. Users will be able to view the app, but not make changes to the data other than to add a new row.

Glide apps are progressive web applications. They operate similarly to a website. For offline mode to work, the end user must load the application on their device. If they lose connectivity, the user can still submit Glide Forms. The data submitted is stored locally on the device, and once connectivity is regained, the data is pushed to your data source.
