An Important Update About Flippity
Flippity is one of my go-to resources for making fun things like games and random name pickers with Google Sheets. Recently some of the Flippity models have stopped working as they originally did. I first experienced this during a live webinar earlier this month. At first I thought it was just a quirk and that it would be fixed quickly. Unfortunately, it is not the case. Last Friday, the developer of Flippity posted an update on what’s going on with many models.
The short version of what affects Flippity models is a change in some of Google’s security policies and the way it handles data posted through Google Sheets. You can read the full explanation here on the Flippity site.
Fortunately, some of the Flippity models are working again. And there are templates in the “Skip Spreadsheet” section of Flippity that work without using Google Sheets at all. In the meantime, I’ll just be patient while I wait for my favorite Flippity models to be restored to full functionality.
