Can I add an existing table to an app?

Posted on by 110

Using the older version of app designer that calls them "entities", is there a way to add an existing table to the app?  

All the instructions I can find refer to creating a new table/entity in the app designer.

Is there a way to do this that I'm missing?

    Thanks, Andrew. would not let me in; when I logged into my account it gave me an error message about how the account could not be used to validate whatever it was trying to validate.

    So I went back to, which I normally use, and after a couple of days the new table showed up as a selectable entity.

    You can do it the following way:

    1. Open

    2. Navigate to Apps.

    3. Click ... in front of the app you want to modify and choose "Edit".

    4. You will be navigated to the app editor.

    5. Click the "+Add page" button.

    6. Choose "Table-based view and form".

    7. Select tables you want to add to your app.

    8. Save and publish.
