[✅ Solution] Multiple select

Hi, we have multiple select field with option a, b, c, d.
When option a is selected we create a.pdf. When option b, b.pdf is created.
When more options are selected: a and b it creates latest selected b.pdf and delete a.pdf.
In Podio we used strpos(multi-select-field), a)>-1 or strpos(multi-select-field), b)>-1.
In automation, update record I tried add files where only variable is selected and also files.
How to set up filters or update action correctly so all files will be created and non of them deleted?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Hey @tomaz - I believe I have a way for you to accomplish what you’re looking for here.
It would require a separate flow with different filters and PDF creation rules for each of your separate PDF’s - but it allows for the various PDF’s to be created and attached without deleting any previous files.

It requires your filter to use
Where → Multiple Select Field → Has changed to any of → [Select appropriate field option]
then use an And statement for
And → Multiple Select Field PREVIOUS VALUE → Has none of → [Select appropriate matching field option]

Here is a screenshot of the workflow rules:

And here is a short loom video walkthrough of how it works: Loom | Free Screen & Video Recording Software | Loom

Is that what you were looking for?


Hi @CarsonRedCliffLabs,
Much appreciated your help.
Of course it works. I just created two automations: one on create and use if action to generate selected pdf and one for update with the same if action.
Yesterday I did almost all filters but did not use any of previous filters… :triumph:
Really grateful for this. :partying_face:
