I have a list block with inline filters. One of the inline filters filter by a column of type formula. The formula is an if condition that outputs a range. The options I have set are the exact same as the ranges the formula in Airtable outputs. Yet, the inline filter still doesn’t work. Every time an option is chosen, Softr gives an empty list.
The exact setup used to work perfectly with the older version of the list block. I updated the list, had to build it again from the ground up and it doesn’t work!
Does the fact that the column softr filter by is a formula make any difference? Is this the reason why the filtering doesn’t work?
A screenshot of the inline filter settings for the updated list block:
I just checked on my end @Motlaq1, it seems to be working when adding the option in Inline Filters manually.
May I ask you to check one more thing? Can you please double check if you have connected the Formula field in Airtable to list block dynamic field? If not, please connect and double check if you still face this issue.
Also, if you could share the URL here, that would be great!
I’m having the same problem with this and can’t figure out why it’s working on some filters but not on others. I don’t want to share the public link here but would like to figure out how to fix it. Thanks! @Suzie
@Motlaq1 What were your settings for syncing this with the data source? Oddly, my dropdowns that this isn’t working on is on similar range fields. Inline filtering works fine on other shorter, text fields. Trying to figure out why this one isn’t working.
Hi @Suzie, this did not address my issue because this is a bug. It feels very frustrating to have bug reports that do not have updates and are implied that they are user error issues. How was the other user’s issue fixed? So that others can take note if they have the same bug occur?
Hi @artur and @Suzie - this bug is still outstanding. I just found out through chat in support that it IS a bug with the formatting and the commas. This was what I asked about in my original comment nearly three weeks ago. Why does Softr tech rely on its customers to identify, test, and solve bugs? @Mariam
@artur Thanks for sharing! How was the original poster’s issue solved if they also used commas? And why would it change if the old block worked correctly? Is there a timeline on this? We have a page that is not usable until this bug is adequately fixed. @Suzie Thanks!
@artur Has this not always been the case for Airtable? We have already had to build some workarounds for the quotes/commas thing, but I’m not sure why that’s happening in this situation again. How was the original poster’s issue solved if they also used commas? And why would it change if the old block worked correctly?
Has the solution you mentioned been pushed live and tested? Will the dropdown work for our users who are actively inside of our portal, trying to filter through data?
