I have a fairly large database in a List that I’d like to sort by US States and Cities.
I’ve created an Inline Filter with a tag for each US State— that’s working great.
The problem is, I have over 1000 Cities - way too many to comfortably display on a dropdown.
I need the City Inline Filter dropdown to only show Cities that are located in the currently selected US State, and hide the rest. A “prefilter”, if you will.
(I believe this is called a Cascading or Hierarchical Filter.)
I need this too. Would love to know the answer.
Connected with co-founder on Artur on Twitter. He said this feature is on the Q4 backlog. Also asked team member Mario, still waiting on a reply from him.
Hopefully it will get built soon! It’s a critical component of my app.
Same. It could make Softr the go-to-app for building resource/content libraries (like YC’s startup reading list), which more and more community platforms are integrating.
Thanks for your feedback It’s very important for us
Please note that this has been added as a feature request.
I am glad to hear that this option shall be available soon.
It is really important to be able to define hierachical dependancies between filters
Really looking forward to this feature!
Related question - how do you populate the filter? Other than copying a large set of values into a filter field on a block, I don’t know what’s the right model. In a perfect world it would build a dynamic filter list based on the entries in a field (e.g. there might be 50 countries in my AT today and 53 in 2 weeks - my filter should be able to inspect Airtable and give me all of the unique options - e.g. 43).
