Hi there, @JayM… as far as I know, what you have described is not possible. I could be missing something here, but I think you would have to save bookmarks to a custom data type if you want to be able to sort them.
Edit: I should have said what you have described is not possible with vanilla Bubble, and I am definitely a native Bubble or bust Bubbler (hence my suggestion of using a custom data type). That being said, this post might be of interest to you…
@cmarchan, I assume you are saying to add a date field to the Post data type, but how would that work when any number of users can bookmark the same post and add it to their own list? What am I missing here?
As @mikeloc correctly stated it would not be possible to sort the list that way.
Alternatively, if what is needed is to report on activity you may consider creating a log system. What I mean is to create a log object in the dB and add log entries as posts are added to lists by users. You can then count and sort those logs as needed for reporting purposes.
I think I remembered that with custom data type vs fields, that I can’t (or don’t know how) to access them when they are nested in another data type or something like that but either I now don’t remember the user case where that was the issue or I have learned how to do it? (maybe it was the fact that I have to create an object using Create New Thing then assign it to the other data type’s field?)
Yeah because as I am testing the custom data type setup, I see a bunch of potential issues. Creating an object every time but only removing it from the user if they unbookmark can clog the database with junk, but maybe I do want to keep a record of all the actions taken? if I delete the bookmark data object I lose that, and that goes back to the idea of creating a log.
Just not sure how to structure all this stuff. So many ways to slice it.
