Looks nice, but why the hype? Email, blog, sticky posts.. I mean it's just an app icon right?

Hi Justin,

Actually starting on May 20th our users are going to be starting their day in Quick Base with a  completely redesigned My Apps experience. The inclusion of App Icons is just one of those changes that is taking place. The new My Apps page features much of the same functionality as the current My Apps, but with a cleaner look and simplified UI. The redesign is based on feedback we’ve received from users that too much clutter, too many options, and similar-looking app icons makes it difficult to find just what they are looking for quickly and easily. And we want to get users to the apps they need as quickly as possible. Since this is a UI change that is going to be deployed to all users we wanted to let them know the My Apps renovation was coming so they aren't surprised by the new look on May 20th and worried they have ended up in the wrong place.

How do you show an app that has been hidden?

Same steps should work then, if you advance search for it and reopen it through the advance search it should be added back to the My Apps page.

For some reason it did not work the first three times i looked, but of course now that you mentioned it I tried it again and is working...

Maybe a browser caching issue or something. Thanks Evan

Glad I could help Adam, it is possible caching may have gotten in the way of that. It can cause changes to lag on occasion.

Hi. I have problems with this. I had hide some apps, but I can't find them neither by filtering all, nor by writing the name in adv. search. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Ana,

The best way to find an app you have hidden from your My Apps page is actually to click right on where it says Advanced Search. This will take you to another page with a dropdown and one of the options is "Show a list of all apps to which I have been granted access". If you select this option and search you will see any app you have been granted access to, including any you have hidden, on that Account. You can do the same with the option to show any apps you manage. Ideally the apps will show up on one of those two lists depending on if you manage the app or were invited into it. 

If it doesn't show under the list of Apps you are the manager to or that you have been granted access to then your access to that app may have been removed. If that is the case you would want to reach out to the App Admin to be re-invited. I hope this information is helpful.
