Changing order of inputs in a manual trigger (Button Flow)

Hi Hive!

 

I've got a complex manual trigger with 20 different questions / inputs.

 

I want to change the order of inputs, this does not appear possible.

 

Previous threads suggest starting again with the questions but this would take too long.

 

I wonder if there is anyway this issue can be escalated, surely it's a priority for development???

 

Many workflows change or adapt over time, particularly when using manual triggers.

 

There should be a function where an entry can be moved up or down in the pecking order!

 

Thanks

 

Richard

I'm not sure you like it but it is a workaround:

 

You can export the flow, manipulate the data in the json-object and import it again. Here is a sample where I changed the order in a test flow. Works fine:

As you see "text_1" is after "text_2" and when starting the flow the new order works.

 

As I said. It's just a workaround and I don't understand why something so easy to implement takes so much time, but maybe this helps with your flow.

Thanks. Agreed. Seems EVERYTHING msft requires either a hack or a workaround to make work since nothing ever seems to be COMPLETED. It's always 75% there and the 25% are the little everyday, functional things everybody assumes should be there as a given. But nooooooo. Plus there's always an excuse/justification.
