Letting Users Add Custom Fields

I’ve searched the Bubble forum and can’t seem to find a topic that could help me with this. I’m looking to add a data type where users could create their own custom field that they could attach to a lead. So an example would be the field name and then the field type would be text, a date, number, or a dropdown where they could select from a list of options they create. Does anyone know of a way I could do this?

I have been able to do that by creating a repeating group that holds all the different types in groups. Then depending on what type was chosen I would only show that group. If the type is dropdown, show only the dropdown group. Which then has a dropdown in it. This allows them to choose any option. I’m sure someone else might have a better way. It did work for me though. Does that make sense?

Hope that helps! :blush:

Glad it makes sense. :blush:

I would also be interested to hear about whether there is another/better method to do this?

I’m looking to allow users to create their own custom ‘Forms’ which can be completed by their followers on purchase


Did anyone got around doing this but instead of in a datatype “row” base doing in a datatype base?
What I mean is, when a custom field is created, add it to all existing entries of this datatype, and when a new “Lead” is created, automatically add the custom field previously created to it as empty.

@zavitac this was the only way I found to do it. It works pretty well.
