Handling Two Collections in One Filter Widget with React-InstantSearch
TLDR Lina wanted to handle two collections in one filter widget. Jason suggested that react-instantsearch doesn't support this and a custom widget might be needed.

I've got a question. I need to handle 2 collections in 1 filter widget. Could you tell, is it possible?
So I have two collections with similar fields. For example:
collection_1 : id, category, status ...
collection_2 : id, category, status ...
Category may have different values. One of the possible values is General.
1. Show General option in the filter
2. When this option is selected, show General items from collection_1, but don't show General items from collection_2
Right now I came up with this solution: I'm displaying filters from collection_1, so the General option is visible there. But when I'm selecting this option, I receive hits from collection_2 with category = General as well. I need only hits with category = General from collection_1 :melting_face: Please help
