As a real beginner at Bubble I want to create a rather complex form (it’s simple I think, but with my knowledge of Bubble uhhmm… not!) I have spend a week in following the lessons and reading topics in the forum but I still have a lot of questions. So here is my challenge and I am hoping you can help me out:
I want to make a form where the user can create a meeting and can define one or more tasks attached to that meeting before saving the form. I read a nice topic about a simular question and what I understood and tried to replicate is that a Button “create meeting” has a workflow which:
- Creates a meeting
- Creates the first task in the repeating group
- Updates the task list of the meeting
- Activates a popup screen with the form
All the fields in the form (except for the fields which autogenerate a unique meeting and task id) are autobinding.
I understand the logic and love the autobinding concept. Awesome, cool! One little problem; the form ends up in a bug message.
Beside the bug there are several difficulties which I cannot figure out:
How do I auto generate a unique meeting id number? (Preferable: M000….) I read the topic about creating an auto unique id field but I do not understand how to find that expression
How do I setup the workflow for the plus end minus icons to create another task or to delete a task (before saving the form)
How do I setup the workflow for the “create meeting” button so that:
- one meeting is saved
- one task is saved
- list of tasks are saved in the meeting tasklist field
- How do I setup the workflow for the save button at the end? As the “create meeting” button already created the thing meeting and thing tasks.
I made a public app so that you can have a look: https://bubble.io/page?type=page&name=forum_question&id=meetingplustasks&tab=tabs-1
