Yeah, thanks. I don’t trust the data view either Pulled the data out into repeating group, and csv etc
The Places LIST is the there, but there are no Places on it. So doesn’t look like it is saving the Place.
It isn’t just lists either, I set up a test page that ADDed a single Place but that didn’t work. But I could save the data associated with the place so I can store the Place Id for example (although not much use as you can’t get a place by id).
So I can always set up a Data Type called “Place” that replicates the fields on Google Place.
Just all a bit frustrating, every time I try to get my head down and crack on with building things I find little issues. I can work round them, but “debugging” and then implementing a workaround takes time that I don’t have a lot of. I know it is beta, and this is to be expected, but just end up demoralised at not being that much further forward than when I started.
Update : Looks like you can save a Google Place, but not a list of Google Places.
Update 2 : If you create a new data type, GooglePlace, with a single field which is a Google Place, then you can save a list of google places. But because you can’t create a set of GooglePlaces you can only do one at a time.
Update 3 : So, I am back to the old favorite of creating the thing on page entry, and then storing my pretend google places as I go along. So that works. For now.
