I’m new to Bubble so please bare with me - custom states are killing me off.
I’ve watched every video on custom states, I’ve read everything and I still cannot understand one thing.
I’m aware of what custom states do but I can do absolutely everything that people are doing with custom states, without custom states.
For example, hiding a group when a button is clicked and showing another group. I can do this without custom states.
I literally see zero use for custom states other than an apparent performance boost.
Custom states still need to use the work flows and they still often use conditioning so why do I need them? Somebody said it uses less work flows but it doesn’t.
Custom State example:
Work flow when button 1 is clicked: SET STATE TO X > HIDE GROUP 1 > SHOW GROUP 2
Not using custom state example:
Work flow when button 1 is clicked: HIDE GROUP 1 > SHOW GROUP 2
It uses LESS workflow NOT using custom states.
Please can someone tell me what I’m missing because they’re absolutely useless to me. I’ve literally built everything these video tutorials are building with custom states, without them and they work just as well with less workflows. It just doesn’t make sense to me whatsoever.
Thanks in advance.
