Random Selection Tool

Let’s say I’ve made a database with 4 columns of data, each under a specific heading description. I’m trying to make an app that will select a random entry from however many topics (1-4) the user has chosen and then display the result.

Can I do that with bubble? and What are my first few steps to make it happen? I already have a database of all available entries for the choices, that I made in another program.

Cheers :slight_smile:

You can get a random entry in a list, so that should do it. See this https://bubble.io/reference#Data.Messages.list.random_element

Cool, thanks! So I would do 4 instance of it? 1 for each of the 4 lists?

The way you should do it is with 4 different lists, yes.

awesome thanks!
