OK. I think I get what’s happening now. I’ll walk you through it. First, here’s the end result and I’ll show you how to get there.
Ok, so what we want is to create an interface where users can post a job. We want them to type in a company name, and have the CEO name pre-filled. We then need them to enter a description and a category, and create the job. From there, we have a list of posted jobs, where users can click on a job to see the details.
Let’s start with the data types. I looked at the link you posted, and here’s how I’ve structured it. I haven’t touched yours, just built my own.
User Data type:
Company data type
Job post data type
Editor page. Do not set any data type on the page.
This is the “New Job” group, where the user creates the job. Set its data type to job post. We aren’t going to feed it data, we’re just doing this to reset the group for another job post when we’re done.
Change the “Company Name” element from an input to a search box. This will allow all companies that meet the user’s input to display. The user clicks one, which populates the field, and pulls the data from that company to pre-fill the CEO input.
We can see in the dummy data for this company i’ve created, that we have a user “Tony” as the CEO.
When the user begins typing the company name, it appears in the search results. They click the correct company, and the CEO box is filled with the CEO user’s name.
This is done by setting the initial content of the CEO input to the Search Box’s company’s CEO
When our job is created, we run this workflow
We then have a Repeating group that displays the jobs, and a dropdown for category that we can filter from.
Hopefully that will help set you on the right path. I can give you more details later, if you need.
