Meet the new Glide Apps

Glide Pages are now Glide Apps. Please refer to this article for up-to-date information, as some of this documentation is outdated.

Use Row IDs

We reccomend using the Row ID column instead of the Unique ID special value. Learn more here.

The Unique Identifier is a special value that you can assign to a row when users add, edit, or submit forms. This unique identifier gives you additional control over relations between items in your app.


The Unique Identifier can only be added to screens where users can add, edit, or submit new entries. You can start by adding the Unique Identifier component. After this, choose the column where the unique values will be stored.
