I managed to figure out the power of Row IDs
However I’m trying to create Template Text using the values?
Here is the scenario:
I’m building a Gallery with a PhotoGrapher and Location
When you publish to Gallery, it populates “Photographer ID” with your Photographer ID
I then build a relational Column "Ref Photos Ids"that Matched the Value
However when I try to create a Template it won’t allow me to use the Relational column?
A relation creates a link to an entire row, or set of rows. If you need a specific column from that row, then you also need a lookup column that will return a specific column from that relation.
Thanks Jeff, however I don’t see what lookup has todo with creating a template?
I can create a template fine if it’s referencing a string
However it won’t let me pick a relational column?
Because as Jeff pointed out, a relation just establishes a link to one or more rows. It doesn’t actually contain any values.
If you want to subsequently use a value from one of the linked rows, then you need to fetch that value using a lookup column.
Note: the above advice assumes that your relation is a single relation.
e advice assumes
@Darren_Murphy and @Jeff_Hager I don’t know where I’m going wrong with Lookup?
I just did a test now and it keeps pulling up multiple values?
See below: Photo Name,
In the lookup configuration use your ‘testRefPhoto’ for the relation column and then target the Name.
That should do the trick.
Looks like your relation is a multiple relation.
It needs to be a Single Relation
Check to see if you have the “Match Multiple” box checked…if so, uncheck it.
Thanks this did the trick, I wasn’t actually selecting the relation column before
