  • 1.  Pipeline Clear Multi-Select Text field

    Posted 19 days ago
    I need to clear the value of a multi-select text field as the last step in a pipeline.  But the only options available are the ones in field properties.  Is there an equivalent for the {{CLEAR}} that is used to clear out a date field that will work for multi-select text fields?

    Did you try {{CLEAR}}? This article implies it is not just for date fields

    Yes, {{CLEAR}} was the first thing I tried.  It is removed from the field value text box the moment I tab out of the box.



    Then, once I move out of the text box:

    Indeed strange. I tested with the same results as you. Perhaps Customer Service may know?

    @Quick Base Junkie also many times is the Oracle in these situations!

    You should see a little pencil next to the 3 bars on the right (may need to hover over the empty field to see it).

    After clicking on it, you should be able to enter the {{CLEAR}} and have it stick.

    An example of this is in this Top 5 Simple Pipeline Hacks post at the very end.
