The more familiar I get with Bubble, the more I think I should rely on “Do a search for” in repeating groups rather than putting a filter onto “Current User’s list of things”.
Sometimes the search is a little slower, but if I could do away with having to keep those “lists of things” on various data types, that would be nice.
It probably depends on the application, but has anyone else decided to go this route, too - using search instead of having all these extra list fields in the database?
(I’ve asked something similar to this before at Is "do a search" always better than "filter"? but I still find myself thinking about it often, so wanted to see if there are any new opinions out there.)
