Prompt With List From Text Not Showing List [Solved]

When I try this it just shows a box to search for items in the list.

Shouldn't it show the list of items to pick from?

Hi @Mathias
You have to first put the text you want to choose from in the Text section of the action:

When run this would put up this list to choose from, like this:

To select items from the list you can just double click on them.

In this case I am selecting the third item:

In the Gear Settings section of the Action if you select "Allow Multiple Selections" that will allow you to choose more than one item from the list.

And the Dropdown Menu at the bottom left of the Action allows you to decide what to actually do with the selection:

In this case it has been set to Save the Selection to a Variable.

Hope that helps!

Ah. The problem is this:

Leave that Field blank and it should work as expected.

OK, I just figured it out
If you EXCLUDE the title, the list shows

Doesn't seem right that it works that way, but it may be a feature and not a bug.

Thanks

Ha! You beat me to it :grinning:

Yes, it's not what you would expect to happen.

It is not a bug because that is how it was designed to work.

IMO, this is a major oversight in the design.
How is the user supposed to know for what they are choosing an item from the list????

@peternlewis, I will again request that you change the Prompt with List design to allow BOTH a Title and display the list.
