Collect multiple values, populate multiple variables

Post by tsolignani » 11 Sep 2019 16:19

Good evening everyone and thank your for reading.

Say I have to collect multiple values, like many field of a database record, or a raw into a spreadsheet with several columns, if you prefer - just an example.

Do I have to iterate with input dialog action to collect every value or is there some other way, such as a form where you can feel each field into the same screen then presso ok when finished?

Thank you.

Hi,

There's no built-in way to get multiple values at once with an input dialog. Of course you could ask the user to provide the values in an input dialog as a comma separated list but this might not be very comfortable depending on values.
A complex way would be to provide a HTML form in a flow with a trigger HTTP Request and action Write HTTP Response Text and then retrieve the entered form data by another flow with trigger HTTP Request. But that's not easy to get working when you are not familiar with HTTP and HTML.

Regards,
Martin
