Add new value to Lookup Column from Forms

Hello @mallika,

I think I found a bug.

I have a form element that lookups a list of cities from a different table. The idea is to let the user select an existing city on the list or add a new city.

With the option Allow Quick Adding of New Items enabled, I can add new cities on that element from the results table, but I am not able to do the same if I enter the data through the form.

Results table:

Form:

Thanks!

Hey Joel, thanks for reporting this to us!, I’ll report this into our internal tracker so adding quick items from Forms can be performed adding another entry point. Hopefully this can be resolved soon :+1:.
Regards.

Running into this same problem as well!

I’m unable to add new items via the ‘Published Form’ view, despite having ‘ALLOW QUICK ADDING OF NEW ITEMS’ checked for the item in question, and it working in the normal layout views.

Would love to see this happen, otherwise having a blast with Coda.io : )

Any update on this? I am having the same issue. Users can’t add new items through the dropdown menu in a form, however if I change it to radio buttons there is an option to add a new item.

Thanks!
