Record Type And Flow

I'm in the process of building a flow which includes the contact object. The object has 5 record types so I was hoping to show a screen where a user could select the type of record and then proceed to the next screen.

I can't seem to find any online material that could guide me through this. Does anyone have experience implementing this kind of solution?

Hi Nevin,  
You can store your RecordType Id as:
- Custom Label
- Custom Setting (hierarchical)

Both can be accessed in the flow through a formula variable.

Create new Formula Variable Datatype Text (I hope you know how to do it)
In the Formula you can access both Custom Labels and Custom Settings (see below)
Use your new variable as a reference in the Record Create element.

Hi Mohit, I'm new to flows so unfortunately this doesn't really help me. I think your showing me the end product but how to I configure the $Label and the $Setup

Hi Mohit, I think that your solution above automatically assigns the record type when I create the record. I want a user to be able to select the record type in the first screen, then move to the next screen where they will input some more information and then save the record.
