I’m making a dashboard widget for the Lessonly developers badge. I’m trying to add a setting that lets the user select which column they want the widget to read from.
I’ve created a board with a locations column (EDIT: the pictured board is called Widget Test):
And I’ve added a columns field to the view settings, the configuration (don’t think its important but I’ll picture it just in case):
Yet, when I go to preview the settings display this:
Which I don’t understand, since the board has a locations column, and the view setting accepts Location as its column type. Anyway, if I click the Add Column → Add to Board, nothing happens, and my console displays this error message (similarly unsure if it is relevant):
I’d be grateful for any assistance, thanks.
Hello @SamM and welcome to the community!
I hope you like it here
When in “Edit mode”, have you selected a board by clicking on the “Boards” button that is to the left and a little below the “Edit mode” button?
I’ve added boards via the button you described, though I’ve always done it in preview mode since the button is visible in that mode. I tried removing all boards than adding them while in edit mode, but I still had the same message as in the 3rd image I linked.
What’s strange to me is that since this post I tried promoting a build to live and adding the widget I’d made to a dashboard, and the live widget works just fine.
Hello again @SamM,
Are you saying that in the configuration you still do not see the widget as intended but when adding it to a dashboard, the widget works as designed?
Yes, I get a “no relevant columns found in this board” in the preview, and when I add it to a dashboard I am able to select a location column.
Hello again @SamM !
Would you be able to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a screen recording of the whole process so we can take a closer look?
