Issue with user specific columns

I’m working on a home swap app, and want to add a multi-match filter like the one @Jeff_Hager designed in his Concepts app.

I’ve shamelessly copied its design but I’m encountering an issue - the choice component writes to a user-specific column, but the choice is shown to all users as if it were a regular column. Not sure if it’s a bug or I’m doing something wrong.

Choosing “pets allowed” writes to column Choice 1 (user specific to my email)

Data editor shows user specific columns

When previewing as a test user, I see other user’s choice

I’ve tried waiting a bit, changing tabs to see if anything refreshes, but it still doesn’t work. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Can you try with a new user in the real app (as in not in editor mode), then go back to editor, enter that user’s mail in the “Preview as” field to see if it works?

@ThinhDinh that works!

I’m not sure if it means that users that were created before the user specific column are doomed or if it’s only an issue with the preview as function in the builder, but at least it works.

Thank you!

It might be an issue with the preview function, but for user specific columns I usually try in the real app rather than the editor :smile:

If you have any further questions feel free to ask.
