This is a follow-up from a closed thread and, just like justincrabbe said at the start, I feel like I should really be able to get this by now. But I’m stuck.
I have a data type called Project. It’s user-generated and there’s a field called Ideas that’s a list of texts.
I’ve been trying to make it so there’s a repeating list of these ideas (done!) and then I want to create a way to have another user select as many “Ideas” as they like when they send a message to the creator of the project.
And I’m stuck on removing the item from the list.
@NigelG, I tried (and tried and tried and tried) to copy your example but I can’t get it to work exactly as you did. (Perhaps because in your example Fruit was the data type and not a field within it?) Whatever the reason, I don’t see a way to filter the way you did (unique id <> Current cell’s fruit’s unique id. It forces "Constraint: ).
I’ve been kicking around every possible idea I can think of and nearly got it working but if you view my example and watch as you click something in and then out and then in again, there’s a flash of the previous idea. This makes me believe that my solution is buggy.
I was thinking of using that! But I’m using this form for two things at the same time. One is to spark interest/delight with the text via a bit of design, and two is for the functionality of one user sending info to another. I couldn’t figure out how to alter the look and feel of the Multiselect.
What really has me stumped is that it feels like I’m missing something simple. The :plus item option works so well that I can’t understand why there isn’t a :remove (or :minus).
Now I’m wondering if I’ve made this whole thing too complicated by trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Perhaps, I need to create a field on the user type that can store this info while on this page. Then, when they navigate away I add a workflow to delete any saved items.
If you have any more thoughts or ideas, I’ll all ears. Thanks so much!
