Usage

Track app usage across your team with the usage dashboard.

The Usage dashboard provides usage details across all apps within a team. This dashboard can be found in the lower left corner of the Glide Dashboard.

By default, the usage dashboard will show usage data from the current billing period across all apps in the team. If you have more than one app, you can filter the dashboard to show a particular app. To review usage for the previous billing cycle, select the Current usage cycle dropdown and change to Previous usage cycle.

Usage Quotas by Plan

Usage quotas for updates and users differ by plan. Note that free plans have no updates, because Glide Tables do not consume updates. Free plans only allow for 10 personal users. These quotas cannot be increased by enabling unlimited usage.

For all other plans, update and user quotas, as well as costs for unlimited usage, are below. For plans paid yearly, the cost to add users is slightly cheaper.

Need more usage than what your plan allows? You can upgrade your plan from the Billing screen. If you need more than what the Business plan can offer, consider the Enterprise plan.

Users

On the top left of the dashboard you will see your team’s user quotas and usage. Users are anyone who signs into or uses any of the apps in a team during a given monthly billing period. Included users are unique active users across all apps, counted monthly.

Team’s user quotes and usage.

To see a list of all active users, select View all in the users section of the dashboard. This will open a window that shows the user email, date and time of most recent login, and what kind of user this person is being counted as.

Updates

On the right you can see updates used across all apps, as well as how close you are to reaching the updates limit on your plan. Clicking on an app name will change the usage dashboard to show only usage for that app. You can then review how updates are being consumed within an app.

Updates are used across all apps in the team.

In general, most features of Glide consume one update per changed row, but there are many exceptions to this general principle. For example, Integrations use varying updates depending on which action or computed column feature is being used. To read more about updates and how they’re calculated for your apps, see our full guide here.

Unlimited Usage

If you reach the usage limits for your plan, certain features in your app may stop functioning as expected. To avoid this, you can enable Unlimited usage. Unlimited usage comes with additional costs that accrue as your usage increases.

For example, if unlimited usage is enabled for updates, then when you pass your updates quota, Glide will begin to track your overage usage per update. At the end of the billing period, you will be charged $.02 per update used over the plan's quota.

Unlimited usage can also be enabled for users who access your apps. The price for additional users varies by plan. See the charts above for a breakdown of quotas and unlimited usage costs per plan.

To disable unlimited usage, return to the usage dashboard and select Disable.

Row Usage

On the bottom left, you will see the row usage for all of the apps in your team. If you filter by app, then only the app you selected will show row usage data. All self-serve Glide plans have a spreadsheet data source row limit of 25,000 rows. If you need more rows, consider an Enterprise plan.

High-scale data source rows

If you have a Business plan, you can also leverage high-scale data sources such as Big Tables, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Google Cloud SQL, and BigQuery. High-scale data sources have a row limit of 100,000.
