Hi,

In my dashboard i have set of inputs and when i submit the values gets stored in a lookup file. 

2 dropdowns , 1 multiselect and 1 text field

Can i store the values from the multiselect into separate records in the lookup or how do i expand as all are clustered like this, not sure how to give a separator.

Multiselect  name - Type

AAA ttt

BBB fff

CCC eee hhh qqq

... in the lookup file it shows like - AAA ttt BBB fff CCC eee hhh qqq. how do i separate it?

Hi @chuck_life09,

did you tried to create a lookup like this:

Name   Type
AAA    ttt
AAA    sss
BBB    fff
BBB    ggg
CCC    eee
CCC    hhh
CCC    qqq

 Calling it in the multivalue?

Ciao.

Hi @chuck_life09,

Sorry but I don't understand your requirement:

  • you have a multiselect,
  • the values of this multiselect are  "my name is" "the desktop is mine" "there are many likes",
  • you want to have these values in a lookup to dinamically manage them,
  • and use them to filter events in dashboard's panels.

What's the problem, to have these values in the lookup? or what else?

As I said, did you tried to put each value in a different row of the lookup, so you can call all the values from the lookup?

Ciao.
