When I first started using/experimenting with Bubble a few weeks ago for my project, I was under the impression that every time a form (with various Inputs and Dropdowns) was submitted by one of my logged-in users, I had to set up a workflow that resets the content when the form was submitted.
However, I have noticed tonight that when a user submits a form (without the ‘reset input content’ or ‘reset data group’ workflows), all the input forms are resetting themselves. So when the user wishes to submit again, using the same form - all inputs have cleared since their previous submission.
The reason I was expecting this; is because I was planning to allow the logged-in user to select a checkbox that would prevent specific dropdowns, that have been grouped together, from being reset.
I anticipate that my logged-in users will be submitting the form several times. For a better user experience, there are certain grouped dropdowns on my form that some users may wish to be “remembered” for the next time they submit a form - without going through the same repetitive steps just to select the same dropdown values that they will most probably use in a number of their submissions.
I went ahead anyway and set up a workflow (which I thought would have done the trick)…
When the submit button is clicked > create a new thing > reset group, only when checkbox isn’t checked > then navigate to a successful submission page
…but I have had no joy with this, and now at a bit of a loss.
I am positive that when I was testing our forms before, the data was not being reset when the appropriate workflows were not set up. I can’t figure out why it’s not happening anymore.
