Miscellaneous

  • You can use array columns like Photo 1 and Photo 2 individually

  • Google Sheet graph and chart images update hourly

  • Large images are automatically scaled down to load faster

  • Images in list are automatically loaded as thumbnails

  • Updates made in apps now cause the sheet to be refreshed within 15 seconds, rather than only waiting for Google Drive to notify Glide of changes in the sheet. For example, if you toggle a Switch that affects other values in your sheet, those changes should flow back to your app in seconds instead of minutes.
