Trying to send dropdown number to a new page


I am trying to send the output of a dropdown to a new page, so I can use it’s value to create a new thing. However, I think the new page has to be in the same format to allow this (but I am unable to set a page’s source as a number).

Would love some help or tips with this. Please find the editor here: Frend ADHD | Bubble Editor


Hi there, @jackwemery93… you can send the selected number to the new page as a URL parameter by checking the Send more parameters to the page box and defining a key and a value. Then, when creating a new task, use the Get data from page URL operator to set the task’s ChildID to the number that was sent to the page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help Mike.

This makes sense, but something still isn’t working. I have now set it up to send the dropwdown’s value (see below):

However, I can’t bring it in on the destination page (see below):

Sorry for the silly questions - it is my first week using Bubble :slight_smile:

You will just type dropdown_val in the Parameter name field (although, getting it in there can be a bit tricky because you don’t want to be searching the dropdown when you are typing it).

Ahhh thanks Mike - got it working!! I see what you mean about it being hard to enter (it starts going into dynamic mode automatically).

Thanks again!
