The Swipe Layout creates floating cards for each of your items that users can swipe off the screen. When a card is swiped it goes to the 'back' of the pile, regardless of whether the swipe is left or right.
The Swipe Layout requires a 'Save last swipe' column which records the last swipe for an item. This can be set to a Basic Column or a User-specific Column. If you don't set this value – you will not be able to swipe your list.
Above, you can see the Last swipe time is set to a basic column in our Google Sheet. However, it's important to note that, if you use a basic column that's not user-specific, all users will share the same progress and when they log-in, they will see the list has moved to another item that they did not swipe to.
If you want the Swipe layout to be specific to each user, then you should use User-specific columns. After you set a User-specific Date/Time column for the 'Last swipe time', the layout will remember each user's last position.
The power of the Swipe Layout comes when you apply Actions to the left & right swipes. In the Features panel of the Swipe Layout's configuration, you'll find two dropdown menus; 'Left Action' & 'Right Action'. Using these, you can make the swipes interact and affect your app's data.
By default, the right action is set to View Details, but you can change this to any action you see in the list.
You can set conditions on whether users can swipe or not. You can find this at the bottom of the Features panel in the layout's settings. Learn more about conditions.
