Invite Existing Stacker Users as Admins
new
Previously if you invited someone to Stacker that had already signed up for Stacker, the invitation would fail. That is no longer the case. Now if you add an existing user, when that user views their 'My Apps' page, they will have an account switcher at the top:
Account Switcher
This is especially useful if you're a consultant or you're working with a consultant to get your Stack set up.
Hide and Edit Labels

As well as changing field labels in the layout editor, you can now turn labels on and off, too.

Lists
Data
Now you can also change list items into links or buttons. There are options to change the button's text, and to open the links in a new tab.
Buttons and Links
Hover over the field you want to edit, and click the pencil icon. From there you can edit and hide labels, and turn them into links and buttons.
Inline Create
new
Data
Previously, if you wanted to add a new item to a relationship field as you were filling it in, you'd have to leave the form you're working on to go and add it. This new feature lets you add items in a pop-up, so you can create them without ever leaving the current page.

Note:
 It's automatically added to any new fields you create, but you'll need to switch it on for your existing items.

Create From One Record View
new
Lists
Records
Data
If you use the One Record Only view for profiles, organizations, families, accounts (or anything else!) then you might have found yourself in the situation where the new users to your app don't have a record in these tables yet.
Stacker Create from One Record View
​We've now added an option to the One Record Only display type so you can choose to display a create form if the users doesn't have access to any records. This is great for onboarding new users for use cases where you need each user to have exactly one record. You no longer have to do any automation work to make this happen!

Records
Data
Once you have got the hang of the auto-populate feature, there's a exciting twist: you can also make the forms automatically save without ever showing your user the form.
Stacker Auto Create
​This means you can create buttons in Stacker like:
  • Add this item to my basket
  • Add this product as a favourite
  • Add this person as a friend
To enable this add &autosave=1 to your URL. Then when your users click these buttons we'll create the record and that's it. This works great with the Created By ID feature which automatically saves the user who performed the action in the Stacker app back to your spreadsheet.
This is just our first step towards actions and automation inside Stacker. Watch this space, much more to come!
Auto-Populate Forms
new
Records
Data
You can now auto-populate form fields by adding values to the URL. We've added the names of each of the fields to the field listing in Stacker, to help you to do this.
Stacker Auto Populate
This means you can construct formulas in your data source, hook them up to buttons in Stacker and allow your users to skip filling in values if you can already work them out them from other related records.
Stacker Auto Populate Register
​This also extends to the register page where you can now auto-populate the email address of users that are onboarding to your app. This is super useful to avoid issues where users end up using the wrong email address during onboarding.
All Fields Permissions
new
Permissions
One toggle to rule them all. Well at least to rule all of the fields in your permissions!
We heard you that if you have a few hundred fields it isn't always fun to manage individual field permissions. So we've added an option to enable all fields. This setting will include new fields that are added later on too.

Quick Impersonation
new
Authentication
Impersonating your users is a great way to check out your app when you have made changes to verify things are working as you expected. You can now do this from the Shortcuts Bar.
Try typing CTRL+K (or Command+K on a mac) and search for a user to impersonate. With two taps you'll be able to impersonate the user and keep the context of the page you were viewing. This is super handy.
You can also use the Shortcuts Bar to do a whole variety of other things like jump straight to the permissions page of a table, or to the users page, or to Setup Home. Try it out!
