Cascading Dropdown for duplicate values

Oct 30, 2013 at 3:42 PM
Hi Marc,

I am having trouble with the Dropdowns in a customer's environment:

We have the combination of three lists there:
Standort (title field)
Objekt (title field, Lookup Standort)
Gewerk (title field, Lookup Standort, Lookup Objekt)
All three lists are used as lookup columns in a fourth list and are combind there with two cascading Dropdowns, which are working fine in nearly all cases.
But:
We have the case that there are two "Objekte" with the same title but a different "Standort". For these objects, the dropdown "Gewerk" provides the values for both Buildings which is kind of unsatisfacory, as these "Gewerke" have identical titles, too.

Is there a possibility to use the filters based on the Item-ID instead of the title? I guess this would solve my problem.

Thanks a lot.

Urs:

Yes, you can set matchOnId: true. Of course, that doesn't make it any easier on the end user who may not be able to tell the top options apart.

Hey Marc,

thanks a lot, that did the trick.
Coming from an older Version, I simply did not know the option.
