There is no documentation for this component anywhere that I can find, but it seems I can’t figure out how to use it. I did search the forum prior to this post and all I found was other users also confused about how to use this multiselect dropdown without any real solutions. For a creator claiming to be highly experienced and billing out $125/hour on their upwork profile, you’d think they’d be able to make a bit of documentation
I want to make a “Create User” form. My users collection is linked to a Roles collection in a multi-to-multi relationship, as users and roles can both have multiple roles / users.
When I try to set the “Create” button to create a user, I am unable to set any roles upon creation. (This behaviour is actually the same when creating a user manually in the Collection itself. The “Roles” linked collection appears when creating, but selecting a role doesn’t add it to the roles list. I have to go back to the record after creating it to update / select the roles I want.)
If I then go back to that same Create button and add another action, this time to Update the “New User” record it would have just created in the previous action, I then see the Roles field.
Since this field is expecting a list because it’s a multi-to-multi relationship, I thought I would just be able to set the multiselect dropdown to update the roles field, because I expected the multiselect box to be a list…but this does not work at all. This seems like it would be the perfect use case, but here I am 2 hours later like “WHY doesn’t this just work!?”
I understand that the Roles field is expecting a list. The “Every time an item is selected” action of the multiselect doesn’t seem to actually create a list at all. I’m not able to use it to update the New User’s Roles.
How do I get it to submit the roles I select in the multiselect dropdown into the Roles of my newly created User? Or myabe the better question is how do I create a LIST of ROLES to submit to update my NEW USER with the MULTISELECT dropdown, or any other means?? Here’s a bit of bad Paint art.
Thanks a lot!
