I am new to Bubble and I feel a bit confused with sending data from an option list dropdown to my database.
I’ve created a data type called “Review” in which I created the field “review-relationship”
The field has to be text from the option set “Review Relationships”
Now, I created a form where users can leave a review. From a dropdown called “Dropdown Review Relationship” they can choose a corresponding option
The workflow behind the button “Submit Review” looks like this:
When I want to link “review-relationship” with the dropdown, it keeps referring to “Incompatible type” - What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for helping me out!
Hmm, well you should be able to do that. The only thing I can think of is do you have a data type named the same thing (Review Relationships) that you might’ve accidentally set the review-relationship field type to instead of the Option Set?
Also, a quick tip regarding naming conventions:
Sometimes it helps to name the field the same as the data type, and capitalise fields that use datatypes rather than text/number etc. So for your Review I might have
as it helps visualise which data are datatypes/option sets and which are not
Thanks for the quick feedback George.
Great advice on naming fields
Regarding the Review Relationships, I haven’t any data types named like that
I only have 3:
And you don’t have two dropdowns named the same thing? It looks like a bug but there might be something your screenshots don’t show. Have you tried deleting the dropdown and recreating it…
Recreating the dropdown solved the issue
Don’t know what was wrong
So much thanks @georgecollier for helping me out!
