Smart Assistant view

This feature is available to AppSheet Core accounts and above. See AppSheet pricing.

The assistant view allows you to interact with your app with your voice, similar to Siri or Google Assistant.

Notes:
  • The assistant view currently works with English and Spanish language commands.
  • When running your app in a desktop, the assistant view speech recognition only works in the Google Chrome browser.

Use the Assistant view

Below is a summary of the types of commands that you can use in the Assistant view.

View data

You can navigate to different tables and rows in your app using commands similar to the following:

  • "Show me my customers" to navigate to a table called Customers
  • "Go to orders" to navigate to a table called Orders
  • "Go to Bob Barker" to navigate to the row with label Bob Barker

Filter data

You can filter your data using commands similar to the following:

  • "Show me all open orders" to navigate to the Orders table and display rows where the enum Status column equals Open
  • "Show me orders from last week" to filter on a Date column in the Orders table
  • "Products that cost at least $5"

You can combine multiple filters in a single command:

  • "Let me see Bob Barker's open orders from today"

You can also apply filters step by step:

  • "Show me the open orders"
  • "Just the ones from today"

If you have a LatLong column in your table, you can filter by distance:

  • "Stores that are less than 5 miles away"

Run actions

When viewing a particular record, you can use a voice command to run actions.

  • "Go to Bob Barker"
  • "Send him an email"
  • "Add a new order for Bob for November 1st"

Limitations

Right now, you cannot filter by Text type columns. You can work around this limitation by converting your Text columns to Enum. For example, if you want to filter your data by State, make sure that your State column is an Enum with a list of states as its enum values.
