How to Add Same Data multiple times in a repeating group

How can I add the same item multiple times in a repeating group?

Suppose I have a data type named Items, which includes different fields such as Item Name, Item Description, and Item Slug.

I have a button that adds a single item to the repeating group, but when I try to add the same item again, it does not get added because Bubble does not allow duplicate data in a repeating group.

So, how can I add the same item more than once in the repeating group?

Please help me :slight_smile:

Hi there, @Raku… when you say you are adding a singe item to a repeating group, what does that mean? What is the repeating group’s data source?


The data source of the repeating group is a custom data type in the database.

By single item, I mean a specific row or item of that data type.

For example, I have a data type named “Task” and this data type have a list of item with different fields (Name, Description, and so on)

I am searching for a specific item in the Database by sorting/filtering it using a name and using the plus item action to add it to a repeating group.

Users will have the option to add or remove this data/item from the repeating group.

But I want to add this same item in a repeating group without duplicating it in a database.

Is there any way to do it? :roll_eyes: :thinking:

No, not like this… :pensive:

You will not be able to add a task that already is added in your repeating group.

But you can explore some workarounds… take a look in what I created here for you. See if it is something like this that you need…

Do you understand what I’m doing?
