I want to create an app where I can store travel locations I’ve found categorized by country. I have hundreds of locations and many countries but I am having trouble categorizing everything. Is it possible to use glide to create something like this?
Also, for some reason I can’t create nested lists that are different for each country- they all seem to be linked.
All what you want is possible. Take a look at as many tutorials as you can and start out simple. As you learn you will be able to add more and more. If you have a specific question that you can boil down to a specific spreadsheet or small sample app that would to a long way in getting help.
Here is what I have so far: https://bm4or.glideapp.io
If you go to “New Tab” you can see what I am trying to accomplish. I want my app to look something like that but instead of having to manually add in the countries as buttons I want it to automatically pick up the countries I have listed in the spreadsheet under “Country Name”.
If you look at the “Country Name” tab on the app you can see it does exactly what I want, BUT upon clicking on the name I can’t reference to different lists. They all show the Turkey filter, and if I change it to another country, it applies the filter to all the sections.
Hope that makes sense.
I don’t see a “New Tab” but I assume you mean the Test tab. You can’t dynamically create buttons, so that is not an option. The best you can do is like what you are doing on the Country Name tab. From there you should be able to filter down to only the places for that country. How to do it would somewhat depend on how you have the data in your sheets laid out, and your relationships are set up. Without seeing the sheet I can’t advise you.
Here is how the spreadsheet is set up.
Here is an app I created with the spreadsheet you provided: https://iafsb.glideapp.io I shared it so you can make a copy of it to see the Glide column I created and then the component I added.
And here is a video of what I did to create it. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mJKh8ncevGykj8qVT0ZfG5maseOINHU-
Thanks for putting that together George! It helped a ton. Happy New Year!
