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.
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.

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.
