How to prevent auto-refresh of Repeating Group Data?

Good afternoon! Our app is gaining traction, and has a social media style user-feed layout. Every time someone posts to the feed, it automatically updates itself in everyone else’s feed.

Is it possible to introduce a refresh workflow similar to how on other Social Media sites, the feed is static until refreshed?

Send your story data feed and modify it with the :staticOperator. Then add an action to send a list to the RG as the update


I think I love you. Holy fiddlesticks you did it bro!!!

10/10 would ask for help again


Was about to suggest this. :slight_smile:

The only thing where Bubble falls short with :static is that the content within each repeating group’s cell is NOT made static even if the RG’s list of things is a static list.

For example, let’s say you have a list of places in a directory, you can make the list of places a static list, but if those places have an image and it gets changed, the image will immediately change for all users looking at a list of places without refreshing the page/list.

It would be nice if we could also make the content static inside the cells of a repeating group.


I have same problem. I have a RG that is loaded messages with the number of likes. When the user clicks like, the fields are rearranged and the message focus goes to another RG index.
I would like to make the RG update only when there is a refresh of the page.
