Multi select Values PowerApps to Flow

I am using SharePoint as the backend and have multi select value in PowerApps which is working as expected. It is a new form for the list and in PowerApps, I am able to select multiple values through dropdown.

 

After user fill out the form and select multiple options, I would like to submit that form back to the list and send an email with all the selection. Submit Form action is working without any issues. I am using Flow to send an email and it is only able to show the last selected value in that dropdown field. So for e.g. If I have choices from A to Z and I select A, B, E, P in the dropdown and click submit to start the flow, it will only capture P as the selected value. Here is my formula for the flow:

 

EmailNotification_Run(User().Email, DataCardValue5.Selected.Value)

 DataCardValue5.Selected.Value would save just last selected value. You need to use SelectedItems property of the Combo-box and DataCardValue5.SelectedItems returns a table of the selected values, you need to use the Concat function to concatenate/merge all the values.

 

Try this

 

EmailNotification_Run(User().Email, Concat(DataCardValue5.SelectedItems.Value,", "))

Re: Multi select Values PowerApps to Flow

Thanks for the reply. I am not getting any value now. It is only showing ',,,' if I use this :

 

EmailNotification_Run(User().Email, Concat(DataCardValue9.SelectedItems.Value,","))

Re: Multi select Values PowerApps to Flow

Never mind. It worked perfectly. I changed it to SelectedItems.Value and that's the reason it was not showing any values. Thanks for your help.

Re: Multi select Values PowerApps to Flow

I have the same issue, but sorry I can't get whats the solution!

I am using this: Concat(cmbProcess.SelectedItems.Value,", "), but I get ", , , "

 

would you please elaborate a bit how did you solve it?

Thanks in advance

Re: Multi select Values PowerApps to Flow

OK. I was using a wrong formula for Concat function!

It should be Concat(cmbProcess.SelectedItems,Value,", ") instead of Concat(cmbProcess.SelectedItems.Value,", ")

"Value" should be second parameter for Concat function.

 

Cheers 🙂
