I wanted to gather some feedback from the community on the chart features.
I have personally made maybe 3 dozens of requests to the softr team on the configuration of the chart features and how they are unusable. If anyone is familiar with how standard charting tools work and how data is stored in a table, you would know that these charts have no use in their current form. It is quite frustrating because it could open up a world of possibilities if the chart blocks were designed correctly.
These charts require your metrics to be actual field values, rather than doing the aggregating of counts for you. What I mean is, if you wanted to have a line chart with multiple counts of items, you would have to make a data table that had the following setup:
Hello folks, i would like to check and see if there any updates on this, at present the only way Charts seems usable is by making sure we have the data be structured as per the needs of the Softr Charts. Has the
Has the narrow charting been enabled?
Is there going to be some grouping or aggregating features in the charts that will be available, similar to Airtable Interface charts
thanks, for your continued support and great product
Great job team! You know how important this was to me and you guys delivered. I know I was annoying and maybe sometimes rude, but I am glad I get to stay on Softr. These charts give me a ton of ability to execute more ideas. You guys took the feedback and really did it. This should be a game changer for all users.
Now… I might just be setting something up wrong but I am getting an error with conditional filters.
I have a blk_key field in both tables that should allow the chart to only render data based off that value. Any thoughts?
@laurasalgueroo Can you share a test page with us to check and see what’s wrong? also for better visibility this question can go as a separate top-level question as org chart is it’s own topic not related to this thread
Hi @aar0n, nice to meet you. I’ve recently joined Softr as a product manager. I was playing around chart blocks, and I stumbled upon similar issue for not displaying chart in published version of the app. In my case it was a number field in Airtable that wasn’t well interpreted. This was fixed yesterday, and the issue is now solved on my end.
Can you try again publishing your app again with up-to-date information?
I see the issue might persist on the website, but this might be as well outdated data in Airtable.
If the issue still persist, please share a screenshot of the problematic field that causes the issue, or share the type of the blk_key – is this linked record, lookup field, regular field (of what type?)
Also, please share all the chart block settings where blk_key is used.
