Am I going crazy? Or did Forms date fields use to present the user with a date picker?
I find its behavior a bit strange.
When you convert table to form inside a document a lot of functionality don’t work (like date picker and attachment field). When you publish form with a link and use link to input data into form all works together. I don’t know if you were referring to this use case also
I remember there was a talk that there would be a separate update to forms for use “inside” documents. Maybe that’s why all features are not working when you use it inside a doc (as table view).
yeah, checkboxes, date pickers and scale icons all disappeared. ive been told the team is working on them. if you are desperate for a workaround you can publish your form and embed it into your view. for some reason none of the components are bugged out in that scenario.
I think whatever is bugging out Forms is also affecting filtering / formulas. I have dropdowns that provide options based on what you select in a previous drop down. This filtering works in details view, but has “reference broken” when inside a Form view
I don’t have any public Forms at this time, so I didn’t realize they are working ok. This is just the internal Forms that I’m noticing the problem with.
A couple weeks ago I reported that my internal Forms had completely disappeared (changing the View to anything other than Form worked, but changing it back made the Form vanish again). Before I received any info from Coda I found that my Forms were working again, but last night I realized the Forms now seem to be partially “lame” (the date picker in particular). I’m wondering if the two problems are related…
ah strange. i too noticed a few weeks ago that forms wouldnt display if i went from table > form. Only if I built the table from scratch using the form view. it was my first day using coda so i didnt realize it was bugged.
I tried a couple things at the time to get them to come back, and one was creating a new Doc with a new empty table and Form, and it worked fine under those circumstances. I did notice that any Forms I had already created in my main Doc or any I tried to create after this wouldn’t show up.
FYI looks like they’ve fixed all the form issues.
Looks like its working now again on my end also
Nice! Seems to be working better on my end as well.
