Using Variables in the find card (Not Working)
# 🤝help
n
Hello All! Any help with this is appreciated. I really love Botpress and was trying to leverage the tables feature to create a process whereas the bot will perform a lookup once the user enters their email address and uses it to checks to see if there's a record already with that email and repsonds accordingly. So far I havent been able to get this to work. Its seems query selectors do not allow you to use a variable in them (I've added a screenshot). If there's a better way to do this please let me know.

Hi, variables are not supported in the selectors for now. Can you share more about what you're trying to do, maybe there's another way of doing it

It looks like I'm running into the same issue. I am trying to check if the email a user entered matches an email in the table. I attempted to use a variable to check the database but as you established it's not supported by selectors. How would we search the database for a previously entered email and return the table id so we can pull the information into our bot?

I'm trying to allow user to enter their email and then have the chatbot check a table and return all records that contain that email address.

Hey, while that's a very good use case unfortunately that's not possible right now with table queries
Would you be so generous as to create a feature request for this?👍
