How-To Guide: Building a custom connector with dependent dropdowns

Have you been curious about how to build a connector when you can't know all of the parameters before the user has made a choice?


As an example, our newest connector, Power Form 7, allows users to fill out a Contact Form 7 form on their WordPress websites. Since you might have multiple websites and each website has its own forms we needed to be able to let our users first pick from a list of sites with the plugin installed and then pick the form they want to submit.


I took notes during the build and documented every step in a way that should be easier to understand than the Microsoft documentation on this. Read my guide here:


I hope you find this useful next time you're building a flow!
