Selecting a database entry and displaying it elsewhere?

I’ve created a database, and in it I’m storing a photo, and two text fields.

Once a user submits, it goes into a repeating container.

I’d like the user to be able to select any number of items in the repeating container, and send those selections into a new database (which would contain the selections they made)

These selections would show up in a new container.

I can’t get my head around this.

I’m playing around with the check box selector to do this, but haven’t had any luck yet.

Any advice?

I could be wrong, but I don’t think it’s possible to interact with the checkbox within a Repeating Group like that.

What I have done in the past, is create a button inside the repeating group, something like add photo, and then the workflow would be, add current cells photo to “my photos” (or where ever you want your Photo to head".

I think created something to let the user know which items have been saved or added. So you can make an icon, and then set a conditional state "when this image is in “my photos” then this item is visible.

Make sense?

You should be able to do what you want with the checkbox, so create an action on the checkbox changing value and an “And When” to determine if the thing you are trying to save is already in or out of the selection (so an Exists on your array). Then either Add or Remove depending on it being there.

Ah Nigel, I see now, you can do the action “when an input’s value is changed”. Forgot about that bad boy
