The column type impacts how AppSheet handles your data.
Based on your data, AppSheet configures a default type. You can customize the column type in the Data > Column pane of the editor. For instance, if you have a column called Name of type
Text, you can change it to be a
Name column type.
- Select the Data > Columns pane and expand the table you would like to change.
- Locate your Column Name and the corresponding Column Type you would like to change. In this example, for the First Name column, Type was changed from Text to Name.
