Help with actions

Hello, this is probably a very dumb question but I’m very new to Glide and I have found the learning curve to be quite forgiving but I’m stuck on what seems like it should be quite simple. I’ve been watching a lot of tutorials and I need to create a custom action within a collection something that looks like this (see attachment 1)

But the only thing I seem to be able to produce is something like this

So if someone could explain to me the difference and how I could achieve what is seen in the first image I would be very grateful.

I don’t understand the problem. It looks like you created a custom action that is identical to the original except for using a relation column that is named differently.

Hi Jeff there is no doubt in my mind that you are 100% right here… I’m just still not entirely sure why…
Why does the action in the first picture not state the database it is related to???

First and foremost, does the action work as expected? Is each individual action configured correctly? I’d be more concerned if it wasn’t working compare to how the action looked on the screen.

Second, how old are the tutorials that you are referring to? The Action Editor has gone through several iterations, so the way it looks today may be slightly different from how it looked a year ago.

Third, actions don’t run on their own. They require the user to do something that will call that custom action. If your buttons, or collections, or whatever else is calling that custom action, then it’s going to run.

Test it out and then see if something still isn’t right. Actions are pretty straightforward. You call them…they do things. If the IF condition branches are set up correctly and looking at the correct columns, and the actions in each branch are set up correctly, then it shouldn’t be a problem.
