API Name: AccountLookup

Field API Name: AccountId

Label: Account

Object API Name: Contact

Here we take Object API Name: Contact and contact has a lookup of account. AccountId is the field API name on the Contact.

To use a lookup field in a Flow screen, you need to create a new screen with the type “Lookup”. You then need to specify the object that the lookup field will search for records in, and configure any additional settings, such as whether to display the record name only or the record name and the record ID.

You can also add conditions to your lookup field to control which records are displayed based on certain criteria. For example, you can display only accounts that have a specific industry or only contacts associated with a specific account.
