Yes - it’s confusing, not sure what it is trying to say.
But it means ‘Type of thing’… You can then add a Search field and restrict it to that Type, and you can add a ’ Fields of…’ field that basically runs listProperties() on the Type of Thing and presents as a user dropdown. See below:
It works but it’s a bit clunky, especially for users. But the main issue is that it makes going deeper into the data-structure and reaching linked Things almost impossible. In Chart Tools I (clunkily) allow users to go one layer deep if they need to reach linked objects, but going further than that is not practical.
It would be great to be able to manage this the way that native Bubble plugins do. For instance the native Bubble Chart element allows users to pick a ‘Type of Data’ (App Type), then run a Search, and then pick out the required fields using the familiar dynamic-style interface. This last part is not open to Plugin developers.
Example of what I mean below where I have pointed the Label expression to the Type field, which is part of the Type object, which is linked from the Activity object… I could go as deep into my database as I want here:
@neerja I mentioned this in Summer last year and still think it would be a great addition to the Plugin developer’s toolbox
