i am trying to create a drop down list with text input tool for a search form. but i got stuck on this problem. so each month there is new folder of that month gets created. i have highlighted in below pictures so i created a text input to adopt that, however i can not figure out how to change that date in the directory tool with the giving month(drop down options) so that the directory will change the period cycle regarding to the drop down list.
so what i want this tool to look like its that every month a user will select the monthly cycle, then the tool will look in to the folder and replace the month cycle. the remaining of the path address is the same every month, so the only thing that is change its the month.
can i do this in the action tool with a formula update? or do i need more? i am not sure.
You might want to look into the topic of chained apps. Your first app would scan the directory, get a list of the sub folders and write this to an Alteryx DB. Your second app would use the DB as the source for the directory list box. From the user's point of view, they'll see it as one seemless application.
