Need Help with Filtering Data in GlideApps

Hello there,

I am working on a project where I am using GlideApps to build a dynamic inventory management system for a small business. I have managed to set up most of the functionality; but I am struggling with filtering data effectively.

I need to filter inventory items based on their categories and display them in separate lists or tabs within the app. Each category should have its own section where users can view and manage items related only to that category.

I have tried using the built-in filtering options within GlideApps, but I am finding it challenging to implement this feature seamlessly. Could someone please guide me through the steps or suggest a workaround to achieve this?

Using inline lists and visibility conditions based on category tags.
Utilizing multiple screens or tabs, each dedicated to a specific category.

Also, I have gone through this post: which definitely helped me out a lot.

If anyone has successfully implemented a similar feature or has experience with advanced data filtering in GlideApps; I would greatly appreciate your insights.

Thank you in advance for your help and assistance.

Inline lists are called collections in the new apps, unless you’re working with a Classic app.

You should be able to filter the collection/inline list using the right-hand side panel. Click on your collection, go to Options, and you should find a filter data section to filter by the category.

You can add as many tabs as you need, then add collections and filter them accordingly.
