I’m building a recipe app that lets users save their favorite recipes.
I have two types of database collections -
Categories are broken down into various types (e.g. cuisine and dish type) and I have set the relationship between these two collections as many-to-many.
When I update a recipe’s categories in the Database tab, I see a multi-select dropdown that displays all the category options and lets me attach multiple categories to a recipe. This is great and what I expected to show up in the end-user form.
However, in my “Create New Recipe” form, the Categories input appears as a text input field. See screenshots below.
I’m stuck here also. I have a list of projects and a list of users. Users need a way to apply to projects but I don’t see any way to support that. Many to many support assumes that a user action can add an entry to the many to many (like a map relationship). Without this feature a lot of use cases are blocked. I’ll add this to the feature request list.
Try building your own form, do not use the template one. If you add text fields and dropdown menus, then put a “submit” button at the end, and the action would be to create a new event using the above text fields and dropdown menus.
Thanks @Ben I can confirm that using a toggle allows for this. There’s no way to do the same thing with a button, right? It’s a more minor need to be able to use a button to “apply for a job listing” or “join a group”, etc. The checkbox feels weird for these sorts of use cases and a button is a more standard/expected UX control for these sorts of flows, but it’s good to have a workaround in the meantime.
Im sorry but going back to the original question, I cant get my many to many dropdown filter to work. Is it possible to have a filter with a many to many relationship? Its a food app so you can tag a food with multiple tags (dairy, gluten free…) and have multiple foods with the same tag.
I have a form creating “x” which have many to many relationships with “y” but while filling out the form for “x” it doesn’t give me an option to select “y” ( instead a text field appears which is not of any help)
@CydeSwype were you able to do it with toggle? if yes, could you please explain, how?
