Tuesdays with Tadabase - April 25th 2023

:sunrise: :cherry_blossom: With May flowers on the horizon, we’re sharing another blooming update from the team! Here’s the scoop:

:wrench: Our engineers have added a new operator to the API! This allows you to filter a multi-select field and find records that contain any of the values you pass. The operator is called “contains_any.”

For example, if you have a multi-select field with three options (Basketball, Hockey, Football) and you want to find records that contain Hockey and/or Football, you can use “contains_any” with the comma-separated value of “Hockey, Football”. Woohoo! :baseball: :ice_hockey: :football:

:boom: We are also continuing to tweak the dynamic display field and making it even more robust and customizable than we initially anticipated. To make it easier to add typical complex formulas, we’ve added a library which you can search through and find the exact equation you wish to use. When selecting the template, you’ll be prompted to match the fields with the fields suggested for the formula.
We hope to start rolling this out very soon and are adding the documentation and necessary finishing touches this week! Woot woot!

:gem: We have a new episode of Chem’s Code Gems this week, folks! Chem’s breaking down how to enhance form functionality for automatic data retention. Specifically, how to improve a form on a details page so that it will automatically populate previously imputed data. Watch the video here (it’s under 4 minutes!) and snip the code here. Yay!

:scissors: Snippet of the Week:

Scissors out, here’s a snippet on how to change the background and text color when a user hovers over sub-menu items. Snip the code here!

:wave: Hasta la vista on this one, Tadabasers. Happy building and see you next week! :palm_down_hand::microphone:
