Can I use a dataviewer with cloud variables?

Hi all,

I’m playing around with building a shopping list app. I started out with a Google Sheet, but was thinking that using cloud variables and firebase was the way to go, since different users could have different lists. (Thanks to Jared and Daren for helpful tutorials.)

The structure would then look something like
user 1
-item1
-quantity
-item2
-quantity

user 2
-item4
-quantity
-item2
-quantity

In Google sheets, without users, I’ve had it working nicely (although everyone would be sharing the same list, effectively). Having switched to cloud variables, I am stumped on how to easily display my data in a dataviewer. Is that not possible? Or am I missing something?

Thanks,
Cathy

You either use list viewer or save your selection to a local storage table and display the table content with data viewer list.

Why not use a normal list viewer (not a data viewer list), and stored variables? It should be pretty simple.
Image is an example of how the code would look. Just replace the text with your variables.

Yeah, but I need more functionality on the list, and listviewer doesn’t seem to do that.

Let me post some video showing what I’m doing…

Oh. Bah. I can’t post video. You’ll have to settle for a screenshot:
