  1. I have been putting together a Lightening Flow per your video and it all works great, except I cannot get the New Lookup Component to work. I have kept it really simple but it is not returning any results. Usually, in a lookup search, when I type in anything, it will start to show the available records to choose. However, no records are showing up. It is as it the underlying Object is not being searched.

    The Lookup is for the Account Object.
    The Lookup Component Setting are:

    *API Name: LookupToAccount
    *Field API Name: Name
    *Label: Search for an Existing Account
    *Object API Name: Account
    Record Id: [left this blank]
    Required: [left this blank]
    Manually assign variables (advanced): [unchecked]

    I have double checked the Account Object to ensure “Name” is the appropriate field to display. I have activated the Flow in Lightening runtime as I understand that Lookup Components may not work unless in Lightening runtime. I am definantely typing in text that should appear as we have 1000’s of Account records.

    Help?
