How to insert an item into a text list?

Hey guys!
I’m trying to do a simple action of inserting an item into a list, but I might be missing something.

My steps:

  1. I created a “Books” field in the user.
  2. I created a simple form to enter the name of the Book.
  3. I’m trying “Data > Make changes to thing”.

I’ve looked at several posts on the subject, but I can’t make any progress. I appreciate any help.

You’re doing it right…

Is it not working as expected?

Hey @adamhholmes!
After clicking, nothing seems to change in the database. Nothing is entered in the “Books” field.

Yup, like Adam said, that should work.

Are you sure you are logged in as a particular user when you are trying to test it?

Hello @mikeloc

I was not logged in with any specific user :man_facepalming:
I did this and it worked.
Thank you so much, you guys with experience really encourage us to keep evolving.

If you don’t mind, I’d like to take the opportunity to ask how do I split list items into rows.

Thank you again!


I believe the problem was that I was not logged in, but thanks for your attention.

Glad to hear it’s working… happy to help. If you are trying to display the books in a repeating group, set the type of content for the repeating group to text and set the data source as the Current User's Books, and you should be good to go.
