Overview

This tutorial displays a date picker component showing marked dates from a Get Records collection. This feature will help users quickly visualize important dates retrieved from the Get Records collection while interacting with the date picker.

In this example, we will use dates from the Task object as marked dates.

    • Click "Done"

Step 3: create a screen component

  1. Drag the Date Picker component and open the Component Builder

  2. Link the MarkedDate field to the Action โ€œSObjectCollecitonโ€ฆโ€ created in step 2.

And voila !
