I’m using the User Profile Block to let community members set up their talent page (picture below). They need to update their data there frequently as they change their job search focus.
Many of the fields are a “Multiselect Dropdown”. Unfortunately, I run into a big problem here:
Some of the fields just disappear after the website has been refreshed. 50% of the fields work just fine, they show the user the selections she/he has made and if they change another section, they just click on “update profile” to change it. The other 50% however always disappear after the website has been reloaded or when someone comes back to the profile later on.
If someone now updates one field and presses “update profile”, all these fields delete the original content and insert a space in Airtable. The work around I have right now is to make all fields a required field, but this way, every time someone wants to change one field, they need to fill out all fields again - making it a horrible user experience.
Am I overseeing something obvious here? I’m really desperate to find a solution
Thanks for the update! Thanks to the (amazing) action buttons, I have a workaround now.
There is just one problem which still stops it from being perfect, will quickly describe it as it is the same problem as before:
I have two options when I create a multi-select field on an “update record” action:
I synch the field to the data source (Airtable) → Problem: It’s always sorted A-Z which is not great for my purposes.
I don’t synch it and move the values in the order that I need → Problem: The same as described above - the current values are not shown for multi-select fields.
