Save dropdown selections from a repeating group

I have a repeating group with 4 dropdowns in each cell.
When the user makes the selections, they can click on “done” at the bottom of the page, and I want to save the dropdown selections of all cells.
I saw some other posts but they were quite old and there wasn’t any clear solution on how to do it.

The output I want would be: cell 1 : text1, text2, text3, text4, cell 2, text1, text2, text3, text4…etc.

Hi @btinc,

There are several ways to tackle your issue depending on your setup.

But have you considered using the autobinding feature on a field of the Current cell’s record to be able to save the selection made?

Or is this not an option for you?

Autobinding is not an option in my case. Is there another way to do it?

Yes there is.

If you want to use a plugin: RepeatingGroup Tools (bdk) Plugin | Bubble

If not, with native bubble you cannot access your dropdown values from outside the RG.

But if you need or want to go with native bubble, what you could do is to create/update data once a dropdown value changes and add it to a state on the page level.

Really depends on what you want to achieve and how fast you want it done.

There are a few ways to do this. You can use the selectiz dropdown plugin and this will allow immediate save/add etc or If you want to use use a save button outside the repeating group I have used aircheckbox plugin, this allows you to activate the checkbox when you select ‘save button’ and in the plugin element actions you can then make a change to a thing which will save each rows fields. I have used this as a hack lots of time for access inside a repeating group. I usually just hide the checkbox behind a white group.
