Passing HubDB Multi-selection select options into Module Field Choice option

SOLVE

Hi,

 

I'm not sure if this is possible. I have a HubDB set up that has a Multi-select Field Column (category). 

 

My idea is to build a module I can add to individual pages. In this module, I have a choice field that has the same options as what's in the HubDB Multi-select column. When I make a selection, the module will only populate with the selected category.

 

Is there a way for the Choice option in Design Tool to automatically populate with the available Select Options of the Multi-select column in the HubDB?

 

Or would I need to manually populate this myself?

@Philip_Marsh No, there is not a way to dynamically fill in a custom module field nor a default field for pulling in HubDB columns. You would need to populate the select options manually or use just a text field for the user to type in the item they want.

How did you get a multi select field?  I'm trying to do that.

In the HuDB, create a new column, column type, and the 6th option in the list is Multi-select

I only see single select or multiple check boxes.

I don't see that option. I only see dropdown select or multiple check boxes

Are you able to post a link to a screenshot of what you're seeing?

That's not showing for me. Do you have a direct link to the image?

No, I'm not sure how to provide that; it won't let me attach

What page are you on? It doesn't look like HubDB or Design Manager. Are you able to screenshot the entire page?

It won't let me show entire page as the pop up overrides.
This is when I go into Contacts --> Actions button --> Edit properties --> Create property - trying to create a new field that allows for a dropdown with multi-select capabilities.

I see. I've not got much experience in that area, sorry. I have more experience in the HudDB and Design Manager area of Hubspot, but I don't think you can create custom field types for contacts. You might be best trying to create a post under the CRM and Sales Hub community.

You could upload it to your website host, and get a direct link from there?

Alt, you could try hosting it here

Thank you. I didn't think there would be an option for that but worth the ask none the less

Ultimately what I'm trying to do is whatever I select in the drop-down on the module is what is pulled through in the page. 

Maybe something along the lines of:

{% for row in hubdb_table_rows(module.faq_table, '&orderBy=order') %}
{% if row.category_select.id == module.choice_field %} 
			
      <div class="shadow">
        <div class="acc-btn" data="img{{loop.index}}">
          <h3 {% if loop.index == 1 %} class="selected" {% endif %}><span>{{ row.title }}</span>
            <img class="plus" src="https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4351639/2019/assets-may-2019/plus-bold.svg" alt="plus symbol">
            <img class="minus" src="https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4351639/2019/assets-may-2019/minus-bold.svg" alt="minus symbol">
          </h3>
        </div>
        <div class="acc-content {% if loop.index == 1 %} open {% endif %}">
          <div class="acc-content-inner">
            {{ row.content }}
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>
			{% endif %}
      {% endfor %}
