Edit view / add field: Select or add new one

Hello all,

I have yet another question that I am not sure if it is possible to do or not.

In my edit screen, which I can see from either Detail>Edit entry or by adding a new entry, I want to be able to have the option to either write a new "title" or selecting from one already created. I know it sounds confusing, maybe, so, in images.


In my entry view, I have a list of projects to choose from, and shows the task I have yet to do. Keep in mind that project list. Now,


This is edit/new entry view. In this one, on the data that is on the red square, I have to add to what "project" it belongs, or type a new one if it is, well, new. So what I want to know is if it is possible to there choose from one that already exists from list or write new one, if needed; or perhaps write project name and give suggestions of name that already exists; if it doesn't exist, say "no match" in the suggestion field.


  • Select "title"/project from list or write new one
  • Select "title"/project from suggested list when typing or write new one


Thanks in advance,


@FelipeCaruwhat does your Update property on the DataCard look like?  You should have that If statement in there to validate and provide the correct value.

Ahh yes, that was my problem @RandyHayes 

Altough I did have the IF formula, I had it with "datacardvalue.18" when the current one was .7, heh


Thank you (:
