Optimize My App - Help with Dropdown Errors - "Sorry, we ran into a temporary bug and can't complete your request. We'll fix it as soon as we can; please try again in a bit!"

So I wrote to bubble and they said I should just ask in the Forum. So here it goes…

I keep getting the “Sorry, we ran into a temporary bug and can’t complete your request. We’ll fix it as soon as we can; please try again in a bit!” error on my site. I believe specifically when selecting a dropdown option that triggers a workflow.

I think this makes it take too long and crashes my app.

Anyone have some suggestions on how to handle this better? I was thinking of just getting rid of the dropdown and use a repeating group in a popup instead. Anyone know if this will speed things up or not?

Thanks again in advance.

@Emmanuel Can you help me with this? What do you recommend? The bubble team asked me to take it to the forum, but no response.

BTW - My app is connected to a different user name, this is just the username I use at work.

Should I try to get rid of dropdowns to make things go faster you think? Seems like I always have problems when there are dropdowns.

Or do you think I need to add capacity already? I only have less than 130 regular users on my app. Prob less than 20 users log in per day.

Thanks Emmanuel!

Really digging up the past here, but did you fix this or change the dropdowns?

I had a user report this error recurring again and again for them so I looked it up in FullStory and it is happening immediately after filling in some dropdowns and clicking a button, so I thinks it’s related to the issue you had

Yeah, I can’t remember what it was, but over the years I have learned that when I see that error it usually means the workflow is broken somewhere. Double check your workflow very carefully and do a step by step to see where it breaks. That’s how I normally figure things out now.

If you want me to look at the workflow maybe you can post a screenshot or something so I can look at it. Sometimes it helps to have a set of fresh eyes to take a look.

Hope that helps! :blush:
