Been bouncing around with this for a while and can't get it to work.
Here's the goal:
- Create an update record containing text describing app changes and key data.
- Display those messages in a view for active users.
- Allow the user to mark the messages read (and then hide) or not to see them again.
I'm comfortable using Jquery to hide views based on data available or not on page renders.
The stumbling block is how to structure the data correctly so that a request to mark messages/notifications read is recorded against the message. I keep coming up against attempts at updating a many-many field to 'add a record' that can't be done without setting the field to one connection.
I think I'm missing something basic here!
