Can you please provide some suggestions on how we can have a multi select feature on a custom picker?
Currently, user can select only one item from the list at a time and to select another one again he/she needs to search again and make a selection.
Basically the idea is to allow multiple select on the data set returned after search on a custom picker at a time, similar to multiple drop down field.
You should be able to define the maxSelections input for your custom picker. See https://docs.appian.com/suite/help/20.2/recipe-configure-an-array-picker-that-ignores-duplicates.html for an example.
Idea is to allow multiple selection at the same time rather than selecting only one when the list of values appear after search.
Currently, you can select only one after a search and to add another one, you need to search again and select, even when max selections is more than 1.
You can submit a feature request for that functionality. The easiest way to accomplish that behavior might be to have a selectable grid that acts as the picker values and a text field that acts as the picker search. The grid would dynamically refresh as you type on the text field, allowing you to select multiple rows from the grid.
