I am evaluating Bubble as a rapid development tool for building a specialized task management app for our organisation and could do with some help. I have undertaken the tutorial.
I’m looking to understand how in a workflow to iteratively work through a data-driven list taking action on each.
As it relates to my application, the requirement is to quickly deploy a predefined lists of tasks against a specific client.
I have modelled two separate data types, let’s call them Tasks and TemplateTasks. The reason they are separate is that they have quite a different set of fields. Tasks are assigned to individual users, have due dates and an audit trail etc, whereas TemplateTasks have only relative timings and roles.
I’m trying to create a new list of Tasks based on the selected TemplateTasks. This would be a 2 minute job in SQL, but I can’t see how to achieve it in Bubble. Copy list only allows you to copy items of the same type, and there is no “create multiple things” that I can see.
I can’t see an iterative workflow where I can work through a list and “create a thing” in each.
Iterative workflow will be important, because when we change a template I will have to iteratively work through all related tasks and decide whether to delete, update or leave alone.
