How to filter smart drodown on multiple columns

Hi Team (or Alex the Great), 

Hoping you can help me again.

I have a form with 3 fields: Date, Location, and Pod

The Pod field is a smart dropdown field that I need to filter based on the selections from Date and Location. The smart dropdown reference table has the same field headings.

I can get the Pod to filter by Date or by Location, but not by both.



But when I try to put them together, it doesn't understand the filter. I've tried "AND", "OR", "&", and "," between the fields and nothing works.


Date:[entry.Date.Date] AND Location:[entry.Location.Location]

Date:[entry.Date.Date] & Location:[entry.Location.Location]

I'm sure it's something simple I haven't thought of, so feel free to smack me on the head with the obvious solution.

Date:[entry.Date.Date] AND Location:[entry.Location.Location]

Should be the correct one 

Based on

But I am a bit unsure about your form - do you have 3 dropdowns set to use the source of the same form?

Have you considered using a smart classifier field - it does all the filtering (reducing options) for you automatically (no need for field definition rules)?  


Hi Alex,

The Date field is a date picker in the main form. The Location field is a regular dropdown field.

In the Reference table all fields are text fields.


I tried the smart classifier field type, but it didn't show any options (didn't even show the fields on the form anymore).


I'm starting to think Confiforms doesn't like me, lol.

Based on what I understand now your filter needs to be

Date:[entry.Date] AND Location:[entry.Location]


Lol, yep, something simple and obvious. 

As always, thanks so much.
