Looking for information on saving the input from a checkbox list?
The only doc I found was about building the list, but did not include information on saving the results.
I will need to send the results in an email with a list of which options were “checked”.
Hey @Chris_Phillips! So if you’re using the out of the box checkbox_list, the “checked” items get stored in a
list of text variable. You can see here, that in this example, its called
What that means, is that if the user selects item1 and item2, then my variable of
activity.checkbox_list looks something like this:
[ "Item 1", "Item 2", NULL ]
So you can pass
checkbox_list through a data flow as an input and pass that to your send email data operation. I would recommend using the
REMOVE_EMPTY function to remove that
null value though and also the
JOIN function to make the list into a single string.
The data flow would look something like this.
