I am building a form for users to populate information about competitors. I went with flow so I can page through the different fields that they need to populate. I want to setup a simple search for company names where they type in the name in a text field -> I lookup records that match the sting -> then populate a drop down that they can select the account that matches.

My problem is that although the fast lookup is coming back with results I can't them to populate in the dropdown. I added a text output field so that I can see the results of the search and it comes back with record ids that match. I can't figure out how to set the results as the dropdown variable. What am I doing wrong?

Screen 1 users put in a name

Screen 1

Fast lookup looks for records where the company name contains the input text.

The dynamic choice is where the results of the lookup should populate as the name.

Screen 2

In the results it's coming back with the id so it makes me think the fast lookup works but alas, no choices.

Based on a youtube video from here, and some insight from select account (lookup) through picklist on Flow Designer I was adding an extra step that was not needed. You don't need a fast lookup to get results to display on the screen you just need the two screen, one to input the value and one to display the choices in the dropdown.

I removed the lookup and just went with the screens and it works.
