No Attaching a screenshot showing what I see for options. It’s possibly I deleted it by accident…am I stuck now? My app is based on the conference template that you can copy, and I keep going back to that one to see if I can figure out what they did that I’m not doing.
Those are column types in the data editor. There isn’t a specific favorites column type. The isFavorite column is pretty much a user specific boolean column. I was hoping to see the list of available columns when you add a new component to the detail screen and open the drop-down to select and attach it to one of your existing columns. I was just curious if it was somehow still accessible, but not visible in the data editor.
It may be possible that the column was deleted at some point. Like I said, I know people have had issues getting it back after doing that, but I’m not sure how or if they resolved it.
A couple of things I would try would be to first try duplicating the app with a duplicate sheet and see if the duplicate works and shows the column. Another option is to create a new Breakouts table/sheet. The favorites column should create automatically if everything is working correctly. If you really wanted, you could create a new user specific boolean column and then add a switch or checkbox component to act as your favorites selector. It’s a bit of a workaround and you won’t have the full features that the favorites component would provide, but it more or less would work the same.
Alternately, you could submit a support request to glide and hopefully they could resolve it on the back end.
She is right. No isFavorite is being created.
@Wiz.Wazeer is that even on new tables? I’m not by a computer right now to check.
For giggles, I went back to the template that I used and copied from and I added a favorite component to the speakers. Then I went to the speakers table and no column was created there either. This is a template that I haven’t messed with or touched at all.
@meganb you are not doing anything wrong. I just carried out some tests. When I use a like button on tables, isFavorite is being auto generated but when I try to replicate same on sheet nothing is happening.
Oh, wait, it actually was created in that other test template. I see it there now.
Please contact support team
Oh great but I’m not seeing anything different
Not on tables
@Wiz.Wazeer if you add a RowID column to the Google sheet through the data editor, then does it create an isFavorite column? As I understand it, glide tables contain a built in RowID regardless if it’s visible or not. Google sheets need you to explicitly add the RowID column.
@meganb Yes or no please? You can see ifFavorite?
@Jeff_Hager you enjoy your evening. I’ll look into this until you return.
@meganb I’m not sure if your breakouts table is a google sheet or a glide table. If it’s a google sheet and like @Wiz.Wazeer said, is not automatically creating the isFavorite column, then I would submit the issue to glide support. It’s starting to sound like it’s a bug.
Thanks man. Have a good day. Hope you slept a little bit.
I tried doing it by adding the like component, but it’s still not creating a favorited column in my sheet.
You don’t need to do anything else. Please contact support team using the link Jeff posted above.
Ok. Thank you both for being so active and replying. It’s nice that this community forum is so active!
