Repeating Group to CSV Download - New Plugin from Zeroqode

Hi! I purchased the plugin, but I can’t seem to get it to work on a page that I’ve built using the new responsive engine. I made a quick and nasty version of my report on a non-upgraded page and it works perfectly… so I’m thinking that maybe it’s the RG settings on the responsive page as “full list” is no longer an option?

Can you advise what settings I need to use for my RG… or whether the plugin doesn’t work with the new responsive engine and I should just rebuild my whole report on an non-upgraded page? Currently it exports a CSV but it’s completely empty.

Hi @bdoc, thanks for reaching out.

Thank you for your message, I’ve tried to reproduce your case on my side and the Repeating Group to CSV Plugin is working both with the new and old Bubble responsive engine.
In both cases, it exports data from RG to CSV.

Please check if you’ve set the same ID for both RG and Plugin action in the workflow (Screenshot by Lightshot | Screenshot by Lightshot).

Regarding repeating group layout style (full list), in the new responsive it is changed to set a fixed number of cells and rows.
Please note that the new responsive engine is in the Beta version, you can consider staying with the old responsive for now.

Please try my suggestions and let me know if they helped.
If not, please reply to us with screenshots and a screencast of your app to check your settings and workflows.
Best regards,
Zeroqode Support Team.

Hi, thanks for your reply! I have triple checked the RG ID is right but it’s still only giving me a file with my manually set headers in it.

Hi @bdoc, thanks for your reply.

I’ve carefully investigated your screens and from the Element Tree, I can see that you have placed the plugin is inside the RG. It is not the proper place for the plugin element, please place it outside of the RG. For example, you can put the plugin element in the main group instead.
Also, regarding the RG: if you are using the “Fixed number of Rows” in the Repeating Group Layout Style (for example, 10), the plugin will convert to CSV only 10 items. But if you choose the “Full list” or uncheck with the new responsive - you will get the full list of your database table data.

Please see the video below in which I tried to reproduce your case.

Also, you can access our demo editor to see the setup I’ve used.

Please note that sometimes there might be some sort of issues depending on the OS you are using and the Application you open CSV file.

Please try my suggestions and let me know if they helped.
Have a nice weekend ahead!

Thank you so much for putting so much effort into helping me! :smiley:

I’ve looked at your demo and compared it to mine, and I have been able to make mine work by switching my repeating group to a Fixed layout (previously was Row). Thanks!!

Hi @ZeroqodeSupport

It seems that nothing is output to the CSV file when Cell’s container layout is set to Row in Layout of Repeating group in the new responsive editor. It seems that it is output when it is set to Fixed, so it is supported there, but what is the situation for supporting layout formats such as row?

I’m able to export the data in the repeating group but it ignores my headers as soon as I upgrade to the new responsive engine. Did you find a way of preserving the header data somehow?

Hello @yukikungcp and @lawrenceb

Thank you for reaching out.

Unfortunately, currently, the plugin is optimized to work on the old responsive engine and has not been updated to work on the new responsive engine, therefore some of the features might not work well on the updated Bubble’s engine. We are still awaiting a New plugin editor from Bubble that is compatible with the New responsive engine, and as soon as it is released, our team will start optimizing plugins for the New responsive :slightly_smiling_face:

You can find more information regarding Bubble’s Plugin Editor & New Responsive Engine: Plugin Editor & New Responsive Engine [beta]

Hope for your understanding on this matter.

I have been having so much trouble with this plugin.

I am plugging in the IDs of the repeating group as well as the group that contains the text elements for the headers. When run the download, my file is empty.

Questions:

  1. Does the name of the rg element need to be duplicated to every element within the repeating group? For example, assume you have a RG (ID: “getsome” with 2 text elements. Do you need to assigned ID “getsome” to the two text elements, or is leaving this on the repeating group alone good enough.
  2. My RG contains a group in the row for a nice hover-over affect. Will that be a problem? If not, same question as 1 above.
  3. I have a group with text elements in it and with a ID “Header”. Does each text element within the header group need to have the same “Header” ID?

I have tried all of the different ways I can think of and I can’t get it to work. Same with the other plugins. “Excel” Table / Data / Grid.

Hi @john.casano,
Thank you for reaching out and sorry for the experience you have faced.

In order to help you with resolving the issue, we need to understand how exactly you configured the plugin and the Repeating Group
Would it be convenient to share more details related to the reported issue?
Namely: screenshots and/or screencasts of your setup - workflows, plugin settings, repeating groups (for the screencast recording, let me please suggest using the Loom tool).

Meanwhile, we will try to provide you with some examples of setup from our plugin’s demo page.

  1. You have to assign any unique id for the whole Repeating Group, that you want to convert (not for the text elements inside it) only if you would like to ignore a specific column from converting, you can assign a unique ID csv_ignored - which is the ID Attribute required to be used while opting out of a field from Repeating Group.
  2. Assign a different unique ID to a group, that contains header information.
  3. In the workflow action: Download CSV rg-to-csv A, complete the required fields.
    Insert RG ID - should be the ID of your Repeating Group
    Captions (group ID) - should be the ID of the header group. See the screenshots below.
Summary



Also if you are using the Repeating Group to CSV Plugin on the new responsive engine, please note that it will work only with the Fixed layout of the Repeating Group.

Hello @ZeroqodeSupport . I just subscribed and started testing your RG to CSV plugin but am getting an error message on download (TypeError: Cannot read properties of null [reading ‘querySelectorAll’]). Coincidentally, it is the same error that now appears when I tried using your demo page for the plugin - screenshot is attached. Plugin and code configured exactly as instructed.


Please advise.
