I’m quite new to the Glide app but really enjoying its features. I would like to be able to add a “status” feature to my app, allowing user to say “I’m busy”, “I’m available” etc., and changing status whenever he/she feels like it.
I’ve really tried to find by myself how to do it, but unsuccessfully so far…would anyone have an idea?
Thanks a lot!
Why don’t you use a choice component on the users profile so when they want to change it they edit their profiles
I agree with the choice component as mentioned above. If it was just 2 options the switch feature could work, too.
Thanks for your replies guys,
The thing with the choice component is that it does the job in terms of “aesthetics”, but it does not translate into real data: it does not create a “status” column in the data tab, for each user. So in the end the user can make this choice on his / her profile tab, but it is not possible to make it appear for others, as it is not actual data from the data tab. Eg, when I set up the general tab with all users, it is not possible to add as a component each user’s status, as it is no data.
Set the choice to write to your status column
If choice is not good enough what of a checkbox
Yeeeaaah I did not see I could to that! Thanks mate
What about using 2 components with differing visibility?
For the user:
- Choice component to select status using status column
— Visibility set to “Show if current user is signed in user”
For the viewer (not the user’s profiler)
- Text component using status selection column
— Visibility set to “Show if current user is NOT signed in user”
Again I haven’t tested it but that’s my thought process.
Kevin’s method is right. If you want to display more than just a boolean value you can have:
One column to store the “status” and the user can change that using a switch/checkbox. It’s only available for them to choose.
One If > Then > Else column to derive the text you want to show. As in status = TRUE => I’m available and vice versa. Then display that ITE column to the other users.
I agree with you @ThinhDinh
But don’t you think a choice component will be easier
Whatever works for him, there are multiple answers to this question.
