I am creating a flow in which end users can select files to copy from one record to the other. I have been able to do this using ContentDocumentLink as the object for the record choice set, but I need to show the file name (title) on the screen component for the user to select from, so they know which files they are selecting. However I can't figure out how to do this. I can show one Content Document Title, but not multiple as I can't figure out how to set up the elements to pull all the Content Documents related to the record.

I am using a Get Records element to get all ContentDocumentLinks related to the record (LinkedEntityId = recordId). Then I am trying to use either a Get Records or Record Collection variable to get the Ids of all the Content Documents that are tied to those ContentDocumentLinks but am hitting errors.

Can anyone help? Thank you!

  • shouldn't the Get Records on ContentDocumentLink allow you access to the parent ContentDocument.Title field (file name)?

  • It can, but then how do I display those titles as choices in the screen?

  • try using UnofficialSf.com Execute SOQL Query to fetch CDL + parent ContentDocumentTitle in one call

Once you've got your collection of Content Documents (using a loop or the SOQL action from the comments etc.), you can use a Datatable component The official one will probably meet the need here but there's also an unofficial one that has more features.

I think this will be a lot easier than record choice sets

  • The standard datatable component does support inline editing.

  • I've edited my answer to remove the inline editing example but I can't find any evidence that inline editing is currently supported in the standard datatable.
