[APP][Pro] Temporary Variables

Temporary Variables

Temporary variables that only exist for the duration that the flow runs.
Advanced Flows only :slight_smile:

Flow Cards

  • Calculate floats (e.g. 10.457)
  • Calculate numbers (e.g. 10, automatically rounds up or down)
  • Simple number
  • Simple string
  • Simple boolean

  • Initial release

The link on the app store “Bezoek forum” is not correct.
It is linking to the Telegram page of the community.
But the app Temporary Variables looks nice.

Yeah, have to change that later. I didnt want to create the thread before the release

OK, no problem.
I understand.

Maybe i am missing something, buth these are just tags, not variables: how can i change/update a variable and than reuse the first token but get the latest value?
Is this possible with this app?

That at least is what i and many more others need: in-flow variables.

But unless i am missing something, this just looks (mostly) like the buildin create a text/number/yesno tag.

There are multiple places where in-flow-variables are discussed or “requested”:

A, i see you response there :wink:

Not with this version, I could create a system for that. But you would have a new token everytime the variable changes. I can‘t think about a system that would currently allow to change a tag value after it was created. maybe i‘m missing something in the sdk, i‘ll take a look once I have some free time.

Yeah, i know, i have been banging my head on it also, allready tried it a couple of ways.
But without a currentRunningFlowId it would need at least 2 flowcards to use and you would need the user to fill in the uniqueId-tag to retrieve the unique in-flow-value.
So not very user friendly.
But since the buildin (general) variables just requires one flowcard to set and no flow card to use, it is, at least for me, still the easier way (except that it is not scoped).

Yes and then u have global variables again in a another name.

I mainly created the app for me to have a simple math card that doesnt require a text to int parse.
