Ability to Display Data From a Multi-reference field in a Dynamic List or Native Collection Page Merged

This was a hot topic back last year, and in high demand - not a squeak from the Webflow folks on it.  Let's revitalize this as a priority, yes?!!!  It's a big win in terms of functionality for Webflow, and a pretty glaring pain-point for anyone trying to use the CMS and Dynamic data in a very basic way.  If you bought into webflow based on their marketing around the power of their CMS (and are plunking down $10!!! a month just for the feature), then this is a no-brainer.

Right now, there is no way to display the data set that we reference in a multi-reference field within a CMS entry.  At the moment, it's usage is seemingly limited to filtering.  Serious question : Why on earth not make this CMS option that you've already created more versatile?

If You were a part of this thread:

Let's vote this up the chain!

 

PS.  REALLY "SLick" and undemocratic how you can't @ tag people in the wishlist, essentially retiring all the voices from past forum threads that might have an interest in a wishlist item, but don't regularly peruse the wishlist.  If deliberate, you can tell a lot about a company and their bandwidth and userbase interest when they won't allow a community to actively campaign on the very forum that is meant for campaigning! Sigh.  Webflow. harder to love you with each passing day.

    If I understand you correctly, you're trying to show only the list of multi-references on a collection template page. Ex: You have a collection of blog posts and each blog post references many tags. If you want to have a list of tags displayed on your blog post page, you can drop a new dynamic list and in the collections dropdown choose Tags collection under the Multi-reference section. (See screenshot). Our apologies for this being hard to discover. Can you confirm that this is what you're looking for?

    If it was supported by the service (Aha) we are using, we would totally use it. So that's out of our hands unfortunately. We wish it was as robust as our forum (Discourse).
