Endless menu while creating a filter


I’ve seen some answers in the forum about it, but I couldn’t figure out what I’m doing wrong here (or how to bypass the Adalo’s bug?) - anyways I’d appreciate any with the endless menu while creating a filter…

I’m building a screen that the user can add many filters.
In the DB I’ve added properties/columns in the user table, for example:

  • filtered_categories - which has many to many relations with the 'category" table.
  • filtered_color - which has many to many relations with the ‘colors’ table.

Once the user selects categories and colors, I save the selections for this user in the Users table (filtered_categories and filtered_color).

My plan was to filter the list of products for the user by adding this filter:
FIlter 1:
All product

Filter 2:
Current Product > Colors
Logged In User > Filtered_color

(And the same for the categories)

But I can’t really create filter 2, due to the issue you can see in the attached image.

Any idea what I’m missing here?

You would need to make the data first available in the new screen. Here’s a quick video tut on how to do it. Hope it helps.

Hi Giladraf,

Welcome to the Community! :partying_face:

Adding onto what @Mosses said, @pfordmedia made a video tutorial on this same topic, which is very common when building your first app.


@James_App_Maker I think you meant "Hi @giladraf " :wink: :slight_smile:

Oh sorry I didn’t see that. :slight_smile: :joy:

Thank you guys for the warm welcome and for the willingness to help me here.
I really appreciate that!

I learned new useful things about connecting data but unfortunately, this is not exactly what I want to achieve.

I’m saving the selection to the ‘Users’ collection and then want to filter the list according to what I have there. here’s an example:

And I get the infinite menu when I want to select this:

Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Would really appreciate help with this one :slight_smile:

Hi @giladraf ,

As I see you want to save preference, category and color, so whenever user view list, you want the content is filtered accordingly.

Try binary total,

I make a sample here,

and just mention again here,

Don’t worry about infinite menu, focus on what you want to display, stay in your logic. :grinning:
