Issue while grouping cards from a "Select list" column allowing multiple selections

Hello :wave:

I’d like to do something but I can’t figure it out. Here’s my situation:

I created a “cards” view from a table and grouped these cards by “Issue Type” (the name of a column in my table that is shaped like a “Select list” - allowing multiple selections) - grouped at the top. I would therefore like the cards for which I have chosen two different “issue types” to be in the columns of these two respective “Issue types”. However, it doesn’t work. Let’s say I have Issue #1 and Issue #2. If I select them both, my card is alone in an additional column named "Issue #1, Issue #2).

I hope my explanation is clear enough. If you have any ideas on how to fix my problem, I’m all ears! Thanks in advance!

Hi @Elena_Lietard,

And welcome to the Coda Community!

For the card layout view, the columns are going to be exact matches. If cards live in two columns, it gets more difficult to drag cards and have values change…do both cards jump, or would one sometimes disappear? There are some questions that aren’t easily answered and for a visual canvas to work on, matching columns deliberately is more straightforward. That’s not to say there’s a right way, it’s the way that we’ve found more people anticipate this working.

So having a multi-select value that you also sort on for card view is going to product the results you’re seeing and there isn’t a workaround that I know of to force it to work the other way.
