Can I display text name of a field rather than unique id?

Hiya: Is there a way to display the “text value” of a field rather than it’s unique ID in the database view?

What’s happening now:

  • An user signs up
  • They select which class they are in from a drop down

The class is attaching to the user fine functionally, but in the database, under the heading “class” rather than displaying the class name, it is displaying the Unique ID.

I know it’s something that could be transcoded once the data is exported, but it would be handy to be able to see the association between the student and the class in the DB view.

I’m new to bubble.io, so apologies if I’m not using clear/correct terminology :wink:



Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi there, @tawny… look for the Primary fields button on the App data tab, click that button, and change the primary field for Class from unique id to Class Name.

Best…
