(Sigh. Tried to edit and accidentally withdrew instead.)
I’ve been thinking about my question some this week, trying to figure out how to execute a project where it might make sense to read a bunch of data from an existing user-owned google sheet. Yes, I know, it’s a weird case, but I’m thinking about importing from a google sheet (user-specified) into the app, so maybe it sort of makes sense. I’m not proposing to store each user’s app-generated data in a different sheet. That’d be silly. But as the user, I’d much rather tell the app where to slurp the data from than retype it on my phone, for sure!
There is a Google sheets API, and Thunkable can make an API call. I suspect that means the answer to my question is yes, but you’d have to do a lot of work to make it happen, rather than just adding a data source and using the built in data source blocks. Maybe that’s not worth it.
I haven’t found way to programmatically add a data source using the built-in blocks (without making API calls and parsing json), but if I’m wrong, I’d like to know!
