Let another user copy your app

You can allow another AppSheet user to copy your app. You will retain control of your app, but the other user can make a copy of it.

When the other user copies your app they will receive a copy of all of your application and all of its data. Before allowing another user to copy your application, make absolutely certain that you are willing to share both you application and all of its data with the recipient. This includes:

  1. Your app definition.
  2. All application data in your worksheets.
  3. All image and file data captured by your application.
  4. Your workflow templates.

Before allowing another AppSheet user to copy your application, you may wish to make a "sanitized" copy of your application that only contains sample data that is safe to share publicly. Then only allow the other user to copy the "sanitized" copy.

See Share your apps with a restricted audience. Set the app permissions to View definition.

The user will see this app under the Shared Apps tab on the My Apps page. They can click the down arrow next to the application and select Copy. This copies the application, the application data, and everything associated with the application to the other user's account.

Once the other user has copied the app, you may wish to remove the user from the shared list or change their app permissions.
