Groups don't show up in previewer

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post, hope I don’t violate any etiquette.

I’m building an app to help therapists log information from a therapy session. There are 2 types of sessions in the database, CDI sessions and PDI sessions. I want to show a button that can route the therapist to a specific session. I have it coded so that it looks like this:

But when I try to preview it, the groups that contains the sessions don’t show up.

I have double checked the following:

  • the groups are visible on page load
  • I moved the groups around in the responsive layout and the previewer did not show them anywhere. It didn’t even show a space where they should be like for group R in the last image below.
  • I have no issues in the issue tracker on this page
  • there are no conditions on any of the groups or repeating groups in those sections
  • I don’t see any errors in the type of content for each section (but even if there is, that wouldn’t make it not show up at all would it?)
  • I created a new group called R, added test text to group R and it showed up in the previewer. But then when I added a repeating group to group R and put test text in the repeating group, the repeating group did not show up in the previewer, although I could still see group R.

What am I doing wrong? Help!

Hi there, @terrence_hibbert… it’s hard to say what the problem could be, but you should definitely check your privacy rules to see if there are any rules in place that are prohibiting the data from being shown. Also, have you checked the debugger to see if it can give you any idea why the data isn’t showing up?


I completely agree with @mikeloc , I find that 99% of the time when data won’t appear for me it’s because my Privacy Rules are set to only show the data for the Current User.


Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!!!

You’re right that the permissions were set so that only the current user could see the data, which is what I need. That pointed me to the structure of the group and repeating group and, after much trial and error, I figured out that my content type and data source settings for the groups were wrong.
