Hey @axel_j -
The allow multiple option changes a field of the specified type (Text, in this case) from being a single value of the type to an array of values for the type. This is really useful for storing some arbitrary information on a table, though it doesn’t allow for search at this time.
Here’s a good example:
In this example, we wouldn’t have been able to filter on the
Nicknames values. However, the data in them was received as an array.
If you intended in having multiple related values - like “Tags” - it’s better to practice creating a separate table for that type and relating the two tables.
If you check out the documentation here, you can find more info too! https://docs.8base.com/8base-console/platform-tools/data-builder
