Tips for advanced filtering of repeating groups

If like me you use text fields as JSON like data there is no way to natively filter repeating groups (RG) based on information stored in them. I have been using a solution that works very well and very quickly using states without complicating your RG setup.

What we are going to do is use a state that has a list containing either the same type of thing as the RG, or (for advanced case uses) texts that contain Unique IDs of things. We’ll call this list FilteredList for this example.

Now with these, we can compare the RG against the FilteredList by applying the “intersect with” operator to your RG’s data source to only show the things in the FilteredList.

Hope this helps someone!
