Attachment: How to open file browser window from microflow?
I need to attach a file by clicking on the button. Currently, I add attachments like this: I click on the “New Attachment” button, which calls a microflow to create a new object of the Attachment entity and opens a popup. On the popup I have the file manager widget, I need to click on it in order to see the file browser window and select the file. I click the “save” button on the popup and a new object with the attachment is now saved. I need to get rid of step 2 – intermediary popup as an extra step that just increases the number of clicks. Is there a way to create a new object and open a file browser window to add an attachment to it using one microflow on button click? So that it work like this: Click on “New Attachment” button, new object created, file browser window opened I select the file in the file browser, close the window and the new object with this file is committed.
Create a datasource microflow, retrieve the document object if not empty , or create if empty. Then have file manager to upload which opens file browser window , upload and save. Thanks
You can do a couple of things to avoid the extra click, here are 2 options:
Instead of showing a ‘ new attachement’ button use a dataview with a microflow datasource from your starting page. In this microflow create and return the file entity. Then in this dataview you can directly show the filemanager.
