After a three-year beta, we've finally launched paid plans. In this post, we
take stock of our current position and discuss what lies ahead, including the
introduction of a PDF report designer, buttons that perform more complex
actions through action formulas, better support for data and more.
We're adding support for paid plans and ending our beta program, requiring you
to upgrade your shared apps to a paid plan. Make your apps private to require
your users to sign in before gaining access. Use the new Statistics window to
gain insights into your app's performance.
Calcapp now supports paid plans and we are ending our beta program. To ensure
that your apps continue working, upgrade them to a paid plan before May 14.
This post walks you through the steps you need to take to upgrade your apps.
Private apps require your users to sign in before gaining access to your app
and require you to define who those users are. User tags determine which users
can sign into a particular app. Use the USERHASTAG formula function to
customize your app based on the tags of a signed-in user.
The new Statistics window uses graphs to shine a light on your app's
performance, in terms of app launches, sent reports and signed-in users, with
a customizable date range. Use it to compare an app against others in your
account or to compare your usage to your app's plan limits.
Calcapp usage is growing quickly, which has led to intermittent stability
issues. We now deliver apps significantly faster than before, which greatly
improves stability. Our White Label plan supports 100,000 app launches per
month, but we plan on supporting even higher numbers in the future.
The Manage apps window now categorizes apps by their plans. It also allows you
to sort apps by their modification time, which is great if you store many
backup copies of your apps. Duplicating an app always puts the copy on the
E-mail report buttons now support setting the Reply-To, carbon copy and blind
carbon copy addresses as well as the attachment file name. Buttons for
downloaded reports now support setting the file name of the report. Finally,
we now support Zoho Flow in addition to Zapier and Microsoft Flow.
Our next release is just around the corner! We're currently finishing up
feature development work and expect to release our new version next month.
This blog post also discusses some of the stability problems we've
experienced as of late.
We will introduce paid plans soon and we now share a preliminary version of
our pricing. You will choose between three paid plans for private, public and
embedded apps. There will be a limited, no-cost plan meant for personal use.
We also discuss our enterprise plans and much more.
