Let’s say I have a Product data type with the field Category and the field Color and I want to count unique things for the field Color after constraining to a specific Category. How do I get to this?
Do a search for Product with a constraint
Category = [category dropdown]'s value then close out of the search and do
:each item's Color:unique items:count
I’m not getting the :unique option?
My bad it’s called :unique elements
Ok that works.
Yea even I thought it was
:unique items because I assumed they were different search result items or something (even that might not make sense, maybe they it should be :unique results or something). Elements doesn’t really make sense because that would be something you place onto your page…
Either way as long as you know that’s what
:unique elements is you can achieve the result you’re looking for…
Although now that I think about it the word result is already taken because when one workflow action refers to the output of another it’s called the “Result of step x”
Well, if we wanted to get pedantic-ish about it, @tylerboodman, arrays are typically said to have “elements” or sometimes “entries”. (Arrays are, well, arrays.)
In Bubble, however, the special case of arrays that Bubble supports is called a list… and lists are typically said to have “items”.
So there is a bit of a terminology mismatch here and I could swear that in the long long ago that that operator was :unique items.
Anyway, doesn’t really matter, that operator (regardless of what we call it) makes the list a Set, resulting in a list/array without any duplicates entries/items/elements.
