How to trigger workflow after creating a dropdown input?

Hey all - I’m new to the Bubble community.

Currently created a list of “feedback” in my database and am trying to create a dropdown option for the user to filter the feedback based on the creation date. I successfully created the dropdown to list the creation date of all the feedback, however, Bubble is not trigger to filter the feedback once a dropdown option is selected. I figure that I need some sort of workflow trigger but haven’t been successful in figuring that out. Any help is much appreciated!


go over to the workflow tab.
Then click the empty box
Then click when an inputs value is changed
Then select the dropdown
Then do: display list and select what you want to display now.
hope this works for you

Thank you so much for your help.

I tried to add the workflow, however, the “data source” is not complete when I use “This Dropdown’s value’s User’s Feedback”. I included the screenshots of what the display list is showing.

You want data source: Do a search for comments or current users comments: filtered
(depending if you have comments not saved or saved to the user)
with the constraint: creation date = dropdowns value ; )

I included what you suggested into the workflow, however, the “list filter” is still showing incomplete.

@TipLister thank you so much for all of your help!

Do you have any suggestions as to how I should format the list filter?

Hi morgan,
sorry i was meaning to answer you.
try this, formatting it as a date

instead of using “when an input is changed”
you can also go on the repeating group and change its conditional data source:

hope this helps.

It works perfectly now! Thank you so so much @TipLister. You’re a life saver!
