Leaving DropDown Unselected in Action Center

Hi wonderful people on the internet :slightly_smiling_face:

I am trying to combine UiPath Form with Action Center, and it works well, except when the field is a dropdown list.

When I trigger it using Open Form, the dropdown list remains blank as expected i.e., none of the list items are selected, but when it is passed into Action Center using Create Task, the last item in the list is selected as default.

Is there any way to make it so that the dropdown remains empty?
I have added a condition on the Submit Button to make it active only when a value is selected from the dropdown.

I don’t want the system to select any item from the list by default, it must remain empty. This has become a problem, as you can see above.

If my explanation wasn’t detailed enough, I’d be more than happy to add few more points.

Help would be most appreciated, thanks in advance!

Kind Regards,
Ashwin A.K


Hey @ashwin.ashok

Kindly create two arguments as form inputs

  • One for the dropdown list source with suffix _dropdown
  • Next is to create one more arg for getting the selected value without any suffix

Make sure both arguments have the same name ignoring suffix

The second argument should be of direction io and initialize it with an empty string or the default value to be selected from the list

Hope this helps
