Inline filters - automatically update options?

Hello,

I have inline filters for list detail blocks in my app, which are populated from single select Airtable fields. I have an automation in my Airtable base which adds new options to the single select field when new linked records are selected in a different field.

My assumption was that the options for the inline filter would automatically update when new options appeared in Airtable, but this doesn’t seem to be the case - I have to refresh the connection in Softr, and then manually tick any new options in the filter settings. Unless I’m doing something wrong?

Could automatic updates of inline filter options be considered?

(And while I’m asking, could we get support for linked record fields to be used as fields for inline filters)?

Many thanks and kind regards,

Matt

Hello Matt,

Thank you for the feature request.

I will surely add this to our features request list.

+1 this request. I’m always adding new tags and types to my resources in Airtable, and just realized that Softr doesn’t update the inline filters on the portal. This is a lot of manual work.

I would dare say it’s a bug, as why would dynamic data not be auto-refreshed from a database? Would that be reasonable?

Can I ask if the ticket includes using linked record fields for inline filters too?

To clarify, I forgot to say in my original post - as Softr doesn’t support this currently, I have an automation set up to create a new option in a single select field, which I use as my inline filter (and was hoping would update automatically!) which is an exact text copy of any new linked records.

It would be fine if it doesn’t, although it would assume users know to implement my workaround, or something similar… So would be far more intuitive if it did :slight_smile:
