I’m building a list like app and I’m having an issue getting my head around how this specific function would work, without submitting a form.
Let’s say a user has a to-do list. Each entry in the list has an icon to click/tap to mark as complete, which will:
- Visually change the element to look completed.
- Update item CMS ‘completed’ field to record that status change.
… all without submitting a form. There is no visual submit button, just a checkbox that is checked.
The checkbox checking action by way of an icon (and hiding the checkbox) is simple enough and I can do that part.
What I want your thoughts on is:
- Whether a form and checkbox is the right approach?
- Is there a toggle approach I could use that does exactly what I need?
- Is there a UI interaction that I could trigger for Zapier to identify and run a Zap to fulfil the CMS update?
I’ve actually built this functionality in Bubble really easily, with a checkbox and the items live updating on their own, however the design and responsive development functionality is so poor.
Webflow is a step above in that regard and I really don’t want to add custom code to make my responsive design work in Bubble. And I’ve got my head around integrating Zapier to fulfil the CMS data management.
BUT I’m now hitting this little issue of having to submit a form, at least when duplicating the checkbox way of working, from Bubble.
Let me know if you need any more detail.
