    Here is what I am trying to accomplish.
    I have a list of conference sessions. I created a custom module called "Sessions". I added in all the sessions, including all their dates.
    I want a list that looks like this:

    Monday
    9:00 am Session 1 
    1:30 pm Session 2

    Tuesday 
    9:00 am Session 3
    3:00 pm Session 4

    I can get the time and titles fine. it's the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday parts I'm unsure of. If I put three different controls each with a different category of session, when I click on the detail view it opens three times. So that didn't work.

    Suggestions?

    Hello Amanda,

    At the moment we don't offer Hierarchical modules, but we're looking forward to have this implemented soon. As a workaround you can use the Lists module. You can create a Lists with all days of the week and for each list create a session item. Then, you will be able to display both list and list items in a lists widget.

    All the best,

    Thank you, Jen.

    I came up with another work around. I added a field called Day and put it in the template as a heading. Then I only entered data in the field for the first session of each day. Dirty way to do it, but it worked!
