Remove similar and duplicate Entries

Hello Bubblers!

I want to track user entries in my app. I have a list of institutions that are shown in a repeating group. I don’t want users to create the same institution’s name.
for example: if a user enters their institution as KFC, others users cannot create an institution that is named KFC, Kfc, kFC, KentuckyFC, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Kentucky Fried C, Kentucky F Chicken, etc.

is this possible?

Thank you!

The search terms you need is “Fuzzy search” - it’s quite an involved computer science topic - eg

But I saw this tip in the forum that might help

Or maybe you could use Alogolia

But I’d be interested to hear of how other Bubblers achieve this in Bubble myself. :slight_smile:
