Parent>child filtering on Grip's mobile apps

Quicker access to the perfect profiles: filter by subcategories

Not even two weeks ago, we released improvements to categorization of profiles using Parent>Child Custom Profile Fields. This allowed you to create categories and sub categories for your event data, making sure your event profiles (people, companies or items) are more easily discovered by your participants. We now bring this categorization to our white-label mobile apps, adding parent>child filters in your mobile app directories.

Small but powerful

Being able to filter by subcategories is a game changer.

Let's say for example your event is about dogs*, you might want participants to search and filter your directories by dog breed (let's say, dachshund) but also by particular categories of dachshund (smooth-haired/long-haired; brindle/sable/piebald/dapple**) to find precisely the dogs they're looking for.

What you need to know to get started

Parent>child directory filters will be rolling out to our white label mobile apps from Friday 28th October, 2022.
