Dropdown & Multidrop down

How do you get your chosen options from either the Dropdown or Multidrop down to show up on a list outside of the drop down, that you can then run workflows on the list of selected options

Hey @david.mcrobbie.cambr, you can either save the selections to a list field in your database or use a custom state value that is a list.

Option 1 example:

Say you have an Ethnicity list field under a data type called Company. You’d add the selected ethnicity to that Company’s list field. "When dropdown’s value is changed " > make a change to a Company > Ethnicity add This dropdown’s value.

Option 2 example:

EDIT!! “When dropdown’s value is changed” > set state > value = Element’s State: plus item This dropdown’s value

For the custom state, you need to select an element on which to attach that state. Label the state “Ethnicity List” and make it a type text, make it a list. Now, you can run workflows on this custom state’s list value.

Bonus:

You can first store selections to the custom state and then SAVE the state list to the list field in the database.

Example: When Save button is clicked > Make changes to Company > Ethnicity list add list Custom State’s value.

Let me know if you have any questions!
