Hi Experts,

 

I'm a newbie here who is creating apps first time and learning creation of apps.

I'm putting a list box to select multiple file and all those user will select comes as a input file in my application. I tried with possible method but could not get a perfect way. If you could help me that would be supper supportive of you guys.

 

 

thanks in advance

@RishiK Glad you were able to find this post. 

 

Good old days when .zip file format was supported in Alteryx Community post 🙂 nowadays support is stopped.

 

@AS this method is also supported on Gallery. Since Folder Browse is not supported on the server.

Hi @AS 

 

This can be implemented using chained app. If it is implemented in a single App the select box options wont be dynamic.

 

App -1: Files Data and File List (list of options which will be used in next step)

App -2: Gives you the option and lets you select. Option for list box is loaded from select tool.

App run: App -1

Clicking on continue will trigger the next app.
