Hi - revisiting Appli to see how its coming along and hope to subscribe soon. It looks great by the way. I am running into a problem updating a record using submit_form_to_db. The form has the RecordID set via set_variable_from_context variable "selected" from a listings page, but the update never happens. What could it be that I'm missing?

Hello Appli Users,

In recent days, we've had a pretty significant bug occur in Appli's no code editor.
I just wanted to let you know that I am working on a fix to go out later on today.
My sincere apologies for any inconvenience or frustration that this may have caused.

Sincerely,

Tom

Another Wednesday release is in the can. Your IDE will auto-update with all the new goodies. Your phones and tablets have a pending update waiting for you to download. We now have proper iPad support. Make sure you get that specific build for your iPad if you have previously installed the iPhone version.

-WHAT'S NEW?
The last time we spoke, I told you we were going to focus on making a bunch of useful templates. And so we are. While doing this, we occasionally see a bug or missing feature we need to make our template. We file the bug or request in our system. They get prioritized and completed within a day or two. The templates are shaping up. We can't wait to release them and get your feedback.

I know we said we were locking our features down. But, we had to apply some energy to our database side of Appli. After all, we are trying to bring databases to the masses. How can we say we are doing that without providing a way to see your tables? In our data section, we now provide a way for you to access any of your tables with a simple-to-use viewer.

The data viewer has all the features of its older cousin in the LiveCloud Manager. It uses all the technology found in our table element. It is the first time we have brought something from Appli to the LiveCode side of our development. This saved us a lot of time because the table element has many features that we just happened to need in our data viewer. This new feature will solve the need to use LCM to verify that your data is working as expected. And, you can check your local and cloud data with a simple button click.

Every update comes with some nice improvements and bug fixes. This release will not disappoint. We already have two full days of development completed for next Wednesday's release. Three more days remain before we push another update. Until then, please enjoy this latest version.


-MEET THE TEAM
We received a lot of positive feedback about our meet-the-team write-up in the last edition. We thought it would be fun to talk about the rest of our team, one person at a time. Everyone in our small group is interesting. It is impossible to pick. So I will go in alphabetical order by their first name. In this edition, we will talk about Debra Nameth.

Debra has been with Canela longer than any other employee. Debra wears a lot of hats. She is our office manager and keeps the ship well-lubricated. This job alone takes full advantage of her organizational and people skills.

Wait, she is our front-line tech support for 2020 Vision and NurseNotes. Over the years, she has become an expert in helping others with various technical issues. Debra has a way of making the most frustrated person feel at ease. She is patient because most of the time, the solution was to change the batteries in their remote control. Sometimes she needs to work with IT in the education or business setting. Her expertise with Mac and Win operating systems helps the less initiated deal with challenging details she easily eats for breakfast.

Or is she the one customers rely on when ordering more 2020 Vision or NurseNotes systems? Those particular products and their sales decisions are very relational in nature. She writes, updates, and generally maintains all of the contracts. She helps first-time users install the software. She points them to our documentation. She keeps our large audiometer fleet calibrated by managing the sea of shipments back and forth. Should a customer need more hardware, Debra has you covered.

Sometimes customers need new computers with the software pre-installed. Debra does that too. If you call our company phone number, she answers the phone. If you email for support, chances are she will get a response to them before anyone does.

She manages invoices, purchase orders, shipping, and receiving. Debra is better than a Swiss Army knife. She not only does it all, but she also does it well.
Plus, Debra is usually the only one that gets my quirky pop culture references.

A few Appli Wednesday updates have gone by. I figured it was a good time to discuss our status.

-Appli Status
We are trying very hard to get our first release out the door. It will be a 0.9x release initially. We are almost feature-ready for the launch. We decided to add one more feature to the launch version. We are building some valuable templates.

New users to Appli will find the templates a great place to start. The templates are free to use for any purpose, including commercial. You can modify them, tear them apart to see how things can be done, change them completely to something else, and do what you want. There is nothing better than learning from working app examples.

-New Team Members
Over the last few months, we hired three new employees to our team. I will tell you a little about them. You probably know a couple of them already.

Kayla Hoang is a recent computer science graduate from UC Irvine in California. She comes to us with great enthusiasm to see Appli reach its goals. She has been a great addition to our team. She has added many new actions to the low-code options. Her keen eye for detail has prompted her to cherry-pick cleaning up the IDE. She has picked up LiveCode very quickly and is already taking on more complex aspects of Appli.

Tom Gold joined us a little after Kayla. He is a seasoned LiveCode developer whom I would suspect everyone already knows. He recently participated in the LiveCode Mega Bundle with the addition of the AppStarterStack.Tom came to us with a wide range of experience in LiveCode and other languages and development platforms. Tom's recent work in Appli includes improving the low-code editor with many new features we have come to love.

Andre Garzia requires no introduction to those that have used LiveCode for any amount of time. We had contracted Andre to write our documentation. He tells me that Appli gets updated so frequently that our screenshots and written docs need constant updating. Now, we can reveal that Andre works full-time for us. He is continuing to work on the documentation and taking on some new roles. Andre is building some of the Templates discussed above. He will also be our voice in broadcasting to the world via various social networks that Appli is ready to play.

We are so fortunate to have our new additions to the team. Because of them, we are going to get a whole lot more completed very quickly.

-Free Swag!
If you have posted in the Appli forums or provided some bug reports, we will send you an Appli t-shirt. If you do not hear from us asking for your shipping address, please ping us at hello@appli.io.

When using ‘get_date_time ,with output format HH;MM AM/PM, you still get 24-hour times - e.g. 17:24

The docs for the convert functions are wrong, inconsistent.
Some use ‘output’ for the location for the result (correct), but ‘convert time’ uses ‘output’ for the format of output,
And it uses ‘formatoutput’ for the location, …….

Mark Talluto has sent a sample Appli sample that is able to send an audio message via an Appli program and convert that audio to text and save it in a table. Think about what this means. In certain situations, texting via a keyboard can be time-consuming. This is exciting. I have included a link to the Appli sample video that you can upload it and review.
https://www.appli.io/pub/Clarence/messages.mp4  You will get a better viewing if you download the file and watch it locally with a video viewing program.
This is a great sample of what Appli can do.

I'd like to get some feedback from other users on ELement Naming Conventions for Appli Elements.
I use naming conventions for my Appli Projects, including lowercase letters and Camel Case text.
Some examples: vRecordID for variables, lbl*** for label text fields, txt*** for text fields, ele*** for element fields, btn*** for button elements - sample btnReturn, and so forth. I find that using this type of element and field elements makes it easier to identify these elements when using low code objects. I would like to get some feedback from other users on what your thoughts may be on this subject. I realize that we all have preferences but it would be interesting to get some feedback.
Thanks, in advance.
