Dropdown not showing up in list filer

Hi, I have setup a dropdown called states. I have also setup a dropdown called Alerts. I created a list filter that was used only for license plates from the users db = to dropdown of alerts. This worked great. I am now trying to add a dropdown to that filter for states so I used the “and” so both the state and license plate are chosen and exist in user db to send alert. I can’t see the dropdown for the newly created states in the input selection. I see the alert dropdown. Any help would be appreciated here, Please see screenshots.

Hi @shonesto,

I just checked your app and I see that drop-down! Reload the editor and try again!

Also it’s good for naming the drop-downs so it’s easier to setup everything!

I have updated that!

Hope this helps!

Thank you

Yes, it worked perfectly, Thanks so much. If I may ask? Is the adalo db all I really need for this type of app. I don’t see any reason to use an external db. What are your thoughts on this? By the way it won’t let me edit name to Alert.

Awesome and Your welcome!

Yeah Adalo DB will be good for you! You can use a External DB when your app hit the storage limit ( but I think you will not need because Adalo will reach out to you and provide support with a plan ) or you need to build a app using you data directly. ( Like you need to turn you spreadsheet to an app then you can use a External DB and connect the spreadsheet! )

Can you add some more details about this?

You can see where the flyout shows “name” instead of “state” I think this has to do with the label which I can’t edit it in the component setup for state dropdown.Preformatted text

You need to change your collection property name!


I did that for you too!

oh okay thanks again.
