Creating a Converted Application
To add a web application click Create a New Application and then select Web Application. A new page will appear where you need to give the web application a name and provide the converted Excel spreadsheet.
Step 1: Select application type
Step 2: Naming and file upload
Step 3: Application options
Advanced options regarding application handling can be determined on this step. Leaving all these options as default will work in almost all situations.
Online: The web application is published at a specific web address and can be viewed by others in a web browser
Offline: The web application is stored in your account but is not available to the end users.
Available options: unrestricted and restricted
Unrestricted: Anyone who knows the URL of your web application can open and view it in a browser.
Restricted: Only registered users can access the web application (i.e. open it in a browser, view it and/or perform calculations)
Restricted with registration: Only defined users can access the web application (i.e. open it in a browser, view it and/or perform calculations) after registering from the login page.
|Availability||Select if a web application will be published only for a certain period of time or until the it’s removed.|
|Allow Concurrent Editing||Concurrent Data Editing locks a record that is being accessed to prevent two users from editing the same record at the same time. Only admin users or users with Unlock Records role can unlock a record.|
|Single Record Application||Single Record Application provides the functionality to create an application with a single record. Every time a user accesses this application and presses Save, it will overwrite the existing record. In a way, it is similar to working on the same Excel file and saving over and over again.|
|Tab Based Loading||Loads each tab only when the user presses that tab in a multi-tab application. This improves the initial loading times in large and complex applications. If it is unchecked, all tabs are loaded at the initial opening of the application.|
|Disable Cache||SpreadsheetWEB can cache HTML pages on the web server. This improves initial loading of web applications. It is disabled by default.|
|Auto Load||When enabled, the workbook for this application will be pre-loaded on all SSWebNodes at ObjectServer startup.|
|Enable DBOpen & DBGet||When enabled, this allows fetching data from a database, either within the application or by other applications. Please note that this feature can only be used in server and dedicated server options.|
|Group||Chose the access type restricted only users that belong to the group you specify here, have full access to this web application.|
|Notes||Space for your own notes. This will also be displayed in the web application list in the column Notes.|
