Tell us what you are trying to do?
I have a "Solicitud" entry post and I want to show the Associated "Productores".
I show them but I cannot filter by a field of the intermediate post many to many (Solicitudes X Productores)
In this case I want to filter by the view where the status is equal to requested and another view where the status is quoted.
Or create a conditional field and filter the same. But the conditional has fewer options.

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

The view "Productores Elegidos en Solicitud" that is showing the related posts in the content template "Cliente Cotización Solo productores asociados" is set to show the intermediary post "Solicitudes Productores entradas intermediaries".

To filter the result based on the field "Estado" attached to this intermediary post type, you can include a query filter in the view's "Content Selection" settings.

For example, suppose you want to show only the related posts where the "Estado" field is set to option "Cotizado" with the custom field value of '2'.
( screenshot: hidden link )

In that case, you'll add a query filter for the Estado field where it is a number equal to a constant '2'.

Similarly, for filtering by the other option of the "Estado" field, you can just change the constant value to that option's numerical value.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need any further assistance around this.

regards,
Waqar

Because example in this post works fine

Thanks for writing back.

The solicitudes post "131" is not showing the related "Juan Cruz Giliberti" productores post because their connecting intermediary post ( 'Solicitudes Productores: 2324 - 1968' ), doesn't have any value saved for the "Estado" custom field.

The view "Productores Elegidos en Solicitud" in the "Cliente Cotización Solo productores asociados" template is set to show the results ordered by this "Estado" custom field.
( screenshot: hidden link )

This why, if any intermediary post ( Solicitudes Productores entradas intermediaries ) will not have a value stored for the "Estado" custom field, it will be ignored by the view.
