Bubble is infinitely flexible – there's an endless list of apps you can build and an endless number of ways in which you can realize your vision. Finding the right way for your specific use case can have a big impact on how many workload units (WU) your app needs (and therefore which of Bubble’s pricing plans might be right for you).
Guys, you should provide more insights in terms of when and where the WU are consumed, the pie and bar charts, and legends work for a general view (Horrible UI), but the data should be in a table where you can search, filter and so on. I think this is the right direction and there is a lot of room for improvement here, keep building.
@vivienne Could you elaborate on what Zubair meant by “Bulk modify” in his Example 2? He mentioned bulk modify as a more efficient option when compared to recursive workflows. I’m familiar with bulk modify in the editor’s data tab but wasn’t sure what he was referring to.
Hi @vivienne Will you be so kind helping us about this following issue?
By the webinar, there were 02 example cases.
The first one (Check user exists) explained in depth, including workload consumption.
But, the 2nd example, not
It was relatedto a repeating group and the relationship with two Datatypes,
This example was not so good explained in terms of the filter already - it was not finalized, as well as the impact on Workload not exposed.
That example, as a whole, is an important reference.
Please, is it possible to sare with us a explanatory video (how to, until the end) of that second case related to RG?
I know Bubble sharing videos, pdf… help about the way. But about a real how to apply it, in real cases, is undoubtedly the most important. So, regarding this, Bubble is not being so contributive. We need real examples to “copy a solid idea”.
@vivienne this topic just get me more sarcastic.
A) Use external tools
B) Don’t do that or this anymore
C) We will improve… someday
A lot of your suggestion can also lead to conflict if two (or more) action/trigger happen at the same time.
And what to say about your conditionnal expressions… oh god… better stop building on Bubble now… (Just a sample example, each time we need to do a search to check if item exist in DB. If not, create a new item…)
Anything else you say are just basic thing that we can call: Do I need this? No… remove it!
Oh, just watched the video (didn’t know I was featured so prominently ). Definitely a cool optimization.
I had not watched it before the comment, but thought I recalled from the webinar that you said bulk, so in my mind it was the API call to the Bubble database.
I’m going to be doing some tests with the API as each call to the Bubble own data or inbound API costs 0.01 and the schedule API workflow costs 0.10 plus the 0.6 cost of running the server side workflow action. Not sure just yet what the benefits will be, but hope might at least be incremental.
I hope the serverlog system to be updated,
For example, it should export logs as a csv to analyze the apps WU usages. To do so, not only the server related actions, but front end WU consumption should be seen in the server log tab.
Also, diving into dynamic expression (like “inspect” or “step by step” of debug mode) is so important to our app performances
