Use Wizards to Create an App from a CSV File


Honeycode makes it easy to get apps up and running from a CSV file in just a few clicks.


  1. After creating a workbook from a CSV file, select Use app wizard.

:hammer_and_wrench: Builder's tip: Prior to using the app wizard, you can use wizards to create picklists to add more functionality to your app (e.g. In the image below, the Company Type and Accepts New Clients columns have picklists; the app wizard will create dropdown menu UIs for these).

  1. Select a Table and click Next.

  2. Customize DATA and SETTINGS and click Next.

:hammer_and_wrench: Builder tip: in the DATA tab, you are selecting the columns from your workbook's table that you want presented in the app.

:hammer_and_wrench: Builder tip: in the SETTINGS tab, you are selecting how you want the columns from your workbook's table displayed to the user (columns or stacked). Typically, columns work well with web apps and stacked works best with mobile apps.

  1. Complete the Detail, Form, and App screens.

:hammer_and_wrench: Builder tip: The detail screen is a drill-in view of one row of table data. The form screen allows app users to fill out a form to add a new row of data.

  1. Click View App to see your fully functioning app. The GIF shows how the built-in search bar can be used to find just what you need.
