Issue With In-App Filter Showing Same Filters for All Users


I’m having an issue with the directory app I’ve built and I’m not sure how to fix it. On the directory list, I have a search bar and ~5 in-app filter fields, however I’ve noticed that when a logged in user applies a filter on directory data, the next logged in user sees the same filters the previous user applied, when the default view should be no filters. How do I fix this?

Thanks for your help!

Are you using a choice component to create a custom filter? If so, make sure your column is a user specific column. Otherwise, I’d recommend you just use Glide’s built in in-app filtering:
any collection → options → in-app filter

I’m using the Options > In-app Filters, and I’m noticing that when I’m logged in as different users, the filters of the previous person set as the default.

Really? That sounds like a bug to me. You’re certain it’s just not a coincidence that they don’t have the same filters applied? Did you confirm this in the published app or just within the builder?

If it’s a bug, how do I report it for someone to look into it?

Right now my app is set to private (only users whose emails I add to the user table can access it). I gave myself access using my two different email accounts.

  • I log into the app with the first email, apply the in-app filters on the directory and logout.
  • I sign in with the other email, and the filters from the previous account remain applied as the default.

It’s driving me bonkers.

Can you record a video using Loom?

I sent you a DM with the videos

An update for everyone else: Clearing cache does work for “resetting” the in-app filter. I do think it can be considered a bug, so I asked @ina to create a support ticket.

Thanks so much for the help. I’m on the starter plan so unable to create the support ticket. But hope this also helps others!
