Data tables Plugin and Repeating Group to CSV Plugin

The organisation i work in uses bubble and we have been using it for some time now, I had following questions regarding the data tables plugin,
1).From what i know, it works on data tables which are to be created on bubble, however in our app we don’t have data tables, there is a particular page where in we have repeating group which has multiple repeating groups in it, i wanted to know if we could use this plugin to convert the values in our repeating groups into a csv, if not is there any other plugin which helps us convert values in repeating groups to csv, there is one of your plugin which helps us do that but it doesn’t work in cases where there are repeating groups inside a repeating group.

2).Also the repeating groups which we have fetch data from external sql database connector, the data table plugin which you have allows us to fetch data from bubble database, is there any way we can use this plugin without using bubble database ?

Hello @kartik

Thanks for reaching out!

  1. Regarding converting the RG to CSV, we have the plugin - https://zeroqode.com/plugin/repeating-group-to-csv-1525781404285x727100664288903200
    which will transform the data from RG into a CSV file.
    The plugin downloads only the data that is fully loaded and visible in Repeating Group available on page w/o containing any RG inside repeating group.
    The Datatables plugin - https://zeroqode.com/plugin/datatables-1550378900350x360527788313673700
    works with bubble database for displaying data and respectively downloading it.
    There is no RG involved in this process.
  2. Yes, you’re right the datatables plugin will work only with internal bubble database. Unfortunately, it is not possible to use an external connected database.

Hope this helps.
