I would like to implement a book “comment/feedback” section in my app.
I have set 2 databases:
Data Type “book”
Field “Author”, “title” , “comment” (with a field type “list of comments”
Data Type “Comments”
Field " comments" (text) , “book” (with a field type “book”)
I have created a multiline input where users will put theirs comments and a button that will create a things “comment” in the comment database and i wanted to add the book title with te current page book title but it is not working, is my database setup correct ?
Thank you in advance,
It seems like you are in the right direction. Maybe show some screenshots to help us see what’s going on?
Thanks for your reply, you will find here below some screenshots of my database and the workflow used to store comments, my issue is that i don’t know how to do to have the book title in the comments data type
I have set up a group with information like author, title …etc.
I have created a multiline input feedback caption and a "submit button"
In the workflow of the button i created a new things for “comments” data type and i linked it to the “feedback data field”. The feedback are stored in the comments database but i don’t know how to do for the “book title” which is linked to “book” datatype
I hope it is clear, do not hesitate if you have additional questions.
I’m not in front of my computer right now but let me see what I can do.
So if you set another field from the submit button step 1 you can choose
book title = current page book
Maybe you should label that field as “parentBook” instead of “Book title” as it may be confusing.
Then you can also do this as step 2:
Make changes to a thing > current page book
Add field: “Comments” Add Step 1’s Comment
Let me know if you need me to do screenshots and I can do that later for you.
Want to learn more?
I hope that helps!
Thanks, it worked !!!
I have just one remaining issue, i have set up a repeating group to list all the comments. I would like to have one comment per row but it seems that all the comments are listed in the same row.
I have put here below the screenshot of the comment database and the repeating group
Thank you in advance for your help !
No problem. It should be the current cell. Not the current page. That should be what you are looking for.
Thank you very much for you help, everything is working fine !!!
