I would like for my app user to provide a list of places and have the app output that list in the order that is most efficient using Google Maps Directions API.
I have set up the following API connection:
Also, I have successfully initialized a call using this connection with test data and have received a valid API response.
In addition, I have a workflow successfully calling that API with user input as shown here:
What I haven’t figured out is how to get the results of that API call in a list.
I have watched this video https://youtu.be/lwQlFgV7p_k mentioned as a potential answer in this thread Get data from API and show it in a field
However, it doesn’t seem to cover the answer to my specific question.
I’d appreciate any help/direction with that!
Try switching you ‘Use As’ to ‘Data’.
Then in your Repeating Group, you can simply ‘Get data from an external API’:
Or duplicate this call with the ‘Use As’ to ‘Data’ so that you can use both in an action and data call.
Iv’e done what you recommended.
However, I still can’t get output to show up from the call.
To simplify the inputs, I’ve made them static as shown here:
I’ve made a repeating group that seems to work:
And I’ve added text boxes that seem to work:
However, when I preview the app, the text boxes don’t populate with anything.
@harrisonalley That’s odd… can you share the preview link? And share a screenshot of the popup after you’ve initialized the call?
PM me if you want/prefer and I’ll take a look
@lantzgould I got it working! I’m not sure why but I changed one of my locations and now it works! Probably some sort of user error on my part. Anyway, thanks again for all your help!
Awesome! Glad I could help.
