Tinder-like pile save functionality and view record details

Hi,

I’ve tried several ways to create the functionality to save and view swipes from the Tinder pile and not finding a good solution, but I’m sure the functionality is built in. Can someone provide any guidance?

I’m essentially trying to create a list of saved TinderPile “LIKES” or “DON’T LIKES” and allowing the user to go back and view them. I can do this using the examples below, but the next step is to be able to view the details of each record without creating duplicate entries or running into type issues. I was looking for some sort of “Favorite” or “Save” or “Tag” functionality. Is there something I’m missing with the Tinder plugin? I’m searched everywhere, watched videos, read documentation, but I’m sure the solution is in front of my face.

Example 1:

  • The Tinder pile grabs from source of type “TinderPile”

  • When user swipes right, that item gets created as a new thing of type “TinderPile”

  • User list of type “TinderPile” gets updated

My problem with this:
I am creating another row in the database of type “TinderPile” and essentially creating duplicate entries

Example 2:

  • The Tinder pile grabs from source of type “TinderPile”

  • When user swipes right, that item gets created as a new thing of type “Saved Item”

  • User list of type “Saved Item” gets updated

  • Then I have a page that shows list of “Saved Items”. Each item will link to additional details of each “TinderPile” thing.

My problem with this:
When I create a page to show the details of type “TinderPile”, the type that was actually saved was of type “Saved Item” so there’s a conflict and I get errors.

Thanks for your help,
Sharon

Somehow this is resolved now… no need to reply. Thanks.

Hi Sharon,

What was the solution?

And what did you do for when a user swipes left (eg. don’t like)?

Did you do something in the Workflow to make sure the user never sees the data (eg. from your “TinderPile”) again?

Thank you.
