I’m very wondering if I can configure a multi select dropdown menu without coding, using GUI of forestadmin
I’m trying for multiple time configure multiselect dropdown menu for my project. It’s a crucial feature for choosing forestadmin like a baas. Creating/connecting own DB or using supabase integration with enum type for my fields do not provide the result. I’m not a developer so hardly can understand how to manage this little thing, so please explaine for the dummies how I should configure this field or how to create a smart action for this, and where.
Possibility of creating multi select dropdown fields
- Project name: test base
- Team name: Operations
- Environment name: production
- Agent (forest package) name & version: 1.36.18
- Database type: postgre
- Recent changes made on your end if any: …
Thanks for reaching out
To answer precisely, could you please tell me in what context do you wish to have this multi select dropdown:
- In a record edition/creation, when editing a field that can take various values?
- When triggering a smart action, if you want to enter an input value (that can take various values)?
Hi @adriguy , thanks for answering
First reason. I just need to have possibility to choose multiple option for some field while creating a record or editting.
Thanks for your answer.
To do what you want, you can simply go to the field settings (Edit Layout > Collection settings > Fields), pick the dropdown widget and set up the values you want.
If technically your field is an array, you’ll have a multi select dropdown out of the box.
Let me know!
Great! Many thanks for helping!
