Are Dropdown Menus From "Add Item" Entry Possible?

When our team is adding items to our Glide inventory data (components: text entries, number entries), is there any way to have dropdown menus in the “add item” interface?

Right now, you are required to manually enter unique values when a dropdown would be preferable. I understand glide can’t import google sheets dropdown formatting or data validation. So is there a way to do this within Glide?

Thank you

Welcome to Glide, @CoFoLucian!

It sounds like you want to use a Choice component on the Add Item screen.

In a nutshell, you’ll need to:

  1. Store the choice (dropdown menu) options in a data table
  2. Configure the Choice component to pull values from that table
  3. Map the Choice component to write to the appropriate column

Hope that helps. :slight_smile:


Awesome! Thank you so much. I will test that out.
