[Solved] Firebase automatically deletes previous tags when I upload new, different ones

Hello everyone,

I’m uploading a ‘complex’ structure made of different objects to firebase:


but when I upload a new entry, a new “Ordine …blablabla” even if it’s different from the previous one it deletes the preexisting one, why?


Help please

It would have to be uploaded as Ordine del (change the date) and then it should save it. If you try and save a new value under the Ordini/Ordine del 11\7\2019 delle Ore 18:38 it will just replace the Ordine. It would also help to see a screenshot of the blocks that are saving to firebase.

It’s a different ‘Ordine del…’ it changes the hour


That is odd. And it is only changing the child node Ordine?

I was probably using objects in the wrong way (I knew it was too good to be true :cry:).

If I save every firebase entry one by one, using set cloud pattern to value
or db save, it works


I dont want “total” child to be disappered when I update only “location” child. I dont want to use much more blocks to solve this. Is there an easy solution for this? @actech @jane

If you change the location node, the total node will not be changed. It’s like a file. If you are in Windows Explorer change the name of the selected file, it does not affect files that are next to it.

Can you open up your answer please. I didnt understand. Im sorry

To change the node values ​​in the database firebase you need to specify the path to that node. You know what is the path to the node firebase?

On your way to figure coordinates as follows:


If you specify such a way that total node will not be overwritten.

Thunkable is visual platform. Its hard to visualize a solution when you try to explain a person who doesn’t know nothing about programing like me. That’s why I put the solution down here. @actech thank you for godsend solution.:100:
