Displaying uploaded files (resumes) and in a list

Hello everyone!

I’m creating an app where users can:

  1. Create a profile
  2. Upload a resume
  3. Input details about the Resume (Job title, link to job listing, date uploaded)
  4. Display User’s uploaded resumes in a repeating group

I’m extremely new to Bubble. I am using the EZ-Dashboard + OpenAI template

I’m running into a multitude of issues with Uploading resume > displaying uploaded file

Issue 1 - Successfully uploading a file to be associated with Current User and not in general file manager
I have an upload resume file button

However when I upload a file two things happen. 1. the file “sits” in the box and nothing happens on the UI.

The empty space above the button is where the repeating group is located.
On the back-end the file does successfully upload, however I think this is in the public file manager.

Here is the workflow:

I’m not sure where my hang up is, but as a reminder I am super new to this. Been searching for tutorials all over, but I haven’t seen anything to help with this.

Thanks for your time and help!


You’re likely not assigning the file correctly into the database, can you share a screenshot of the “Make a new Resume”?
You should have a File field on your Resume database and use the file URL to add into the File “File Uploader’s Uploaded File’s URL” and that should assign it correctly.

The other thing is that you don’t need to Display data in the Repeating group, if your repeating group has a data source and you then Display data into it through the workflow, you’re overwriting the Data source, and by looking at the screenshot, your new data source is empty/incorrectly formated

Another issue that I see is that you’re creating a Resume thing with (I Assume) a User assigned to it, but you are not assigning a Resume to any User record

So if you’re searching for Current User’s Resumes it will be empty. You need to add a Make Changes to User step after the Create Resume step so that you can add the First Step’s Resume to the Resume field in your User’s Database… if that makes sense…
