Hello @Kevin_Didelot

Do you want to create a multi select in a smart action or to edit a record in a collection ?

Hello @nbouliol

Edit a record in a collection


You can use a smart action form

Here is an example action :

    "name": "Manage Items",
    "type": "single",
    "fields": [
        "field": "Test",
        "enums": ["1", "2", "3", "4", "5"],
        "type": ["Enum"],
        "widget": "checkboxes",

The key part to handle the multi select is the "widget": "checkboxes" part
