Hello I am making an app to track the weight of my pet birds.

I have one set up and working as needed but I am looking to add some more features to the app. Right now I have a static app that only has 2 birds and have made a slice of the data for each bird to use that to display a line chart for their weight.

I am looking to make it possible to add additional birds from within the app and the correct information for each bid displayed in a chart without manually creating a slice on the back end.

I have it set up to properly create the new bid entry and show the related weights in a table view but can not figure out how to do the same thing in a chart view.

Is it possible to do this or do i have to manually make the slice for this to work?

You could have a single slice that filters rows of your table based on a user setting. The user setting would be used to choose the bird.

Do you have a link to the documentation on this or and example?

I am new to appsheet and still learning the process.

What you’re trying to do sounds pretty straight-forward, and should be an excellent learning exercise! Speak up if you have any more questions!
