App Adds Multiple Items

Hey guys,

I’m using a button to “add new row”

Every time I fill out the form, my new row is automatically double.

Tried using it on the google sheet I built the app with initially, then tried copying the sheet into glide tables (which I plan on migrating everything to)

Both scenarios, my app creates the item and a duplicate.

Am I doing something wrong?

Here is what’s happening: Screen Recording 2021-12-31...

Hi @teehalz :wave:

If you are using the Add Row action in a form then it duplicates. Remove that action and try.

Thank you

Forms add rows on their own. That’s the purpose of a form. If you add an additional add row action, on submit, to the same table with the same data, then yes, you will get a duplicate.

Dilon - thank you for the reponse, I appreciate it!

All this button does is open a form edit screen (Image 2021-12-31 at 10.40.4...) should I embed a form on this page instead? Or am I still duplicating the step? I realize this is probably a super easy fix and I’m just overthinking it / missing one step.

Thank you!

Not there. Check here. (On Submit)


Thank you

You rock, sir. I was just about to post that your comment helped me figure it out – I switched action on form submit to “close form”

Thank you so much for the help, my 2 hours spent on this at 2AM last night were not enough and it was really just that simple… :rofl:

Thank you again, happy new year!

I might be overstepping my boundaries here and am happy to pay for this advice as well… if I can hire you for a consultation drop your link and I’ll book it.

I have another question on categories and relations.

This 48 second screen recording shows what I’m coming up with.

Problem is - I built my first app on google sheets. For this version, I’d like to use Glide tables. I’m rebuilding as such but cannot figure out my category relation. In my sheet, I have 3 columns that enable a category selection.

In the new one, I’d like to just have one “Categories” column where multiple can be selected.

For whatever reason, I cannot get the relation to pull correctly.

are you looking for something like this?

I think what you might be looking for is an array column? Are you trying to replicate sequentially numbered columns in a google sheet, that become a single array column in glide?

If I’m assuming correctly, you can either have separate columns for each category, then join them together with a template column, separating each value with a comma or some other delimiter (or you can simply have a single text column with a delimited list of items). Then use a Split Text column to split the values in your template or text column into an array of values that you can use for relations.

With Split Text Column.

Hope I’m correct.

Sorry! I’m not available for hire. You can hire a Expert.

Thank you

I’m available… got sick :frowning:

I really appreciate you taking the time to make that video! That is very helpful. I copied exactly as you said – and it’s still not pulling in. Which is odd, because it works perfectly on my google sheet, albeit a slightly different way (with the array as above comment mentioned)

I tried deleting all and re adding as well, still no avail. Not sure which part I’m missing. Actually tried recreating in a completely different app and no luck as well either. Is this because I’m using Row IDs?

I figured it out - my categories had incorrect spacing in almost all of them. This video shows it - so the naming was just off.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to help me out - I really appreciate it! Thank you!
