Is there a way to handle array or sets in a response from a flow?

Posted on by

I would like to handle responses a bit more dynamically than a single variable at a time which is the current method.

Is there a way to return and surface a response in the form of an array, or even better a formatted HTML table? Also, is there a size or character limit to what the response can surface in the chat?

 

Thanks!

    Hi, when we enable the functionality, we will look into the challenge you outlined. We currently don't have a specific timeline for enabling this functionality.

    HI @mivakoc 

    Thanks for the reply. It should help, in returning an array it also creates some challenges about how I can use the variable since there is no mechanism for manipulating the results into a readable response?

     

    Any eta on when that would be addressed?

    Thanks!

    Hi @jpirelli

     

    Thanks for your question. This is currently unsupported but something we are looking into. The goal is to create a list of variables type in Power Virtual Agents to which you could map the output of the Flow. Is that something that would work for your use case?
