Nested RGs in Activity Feed

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to replicate the content in this screenshot, but I’m not exactly sure how. I’ve researched a few posts, but the use cases weren’t exactly in line.

Conceptually, I’m close to understanding how this would work, but I need a little help to push me over the edge.

What’s throwing me for a loop is coming up with the Time Headers e.g., Upcoming, March, Feb, Jan etc. Is this one RG nested within another, or are there more? For the Time Header, is it just one with a condition, or are there two, for example, with one being Upcoming and the other that changes to months?

If someone would be kind enough to give me the main points of building this thing, I sure would appreciate it.


Hey @chrismilleratx,

Happy to chime in here! There’s quite a few ways this page may have been structured, but here’s a couple possibilities:

  • Groups with Nested Repeating Groups (this would entail the Upcoming, March 2023 and February 2023 sections were created manually, each with a set date for its Data Source, and a repeating group in each of those groups that queries items using the Group’s date)
  • Repeating Groups with Nested Repeating Groups (the entire view including Upcoming, March 2023 and February 2023 are being queried, and each cell result has a repeating group nested within it that queries the items to be shown)

You’ll want to play around with the data structures, page layout and element trees to get a better understanding of how to build the view you’ve shared. It’s pretty common (and popular) to see applications with many several repeating groups as a part of their UI development approach. :slight_smile:
