Possibility to initialize variables at the beginning of a flow

It would be great to have the ability to define (initialize) variables at the very beginning of a workflow. 
Then you could start using this variable (e.g. string for URL) already in the trigger "when an item is created" and again maybe in a next step for "update item".

Re: Possibility to initialize variables at the beginning of a flow

Hi Rubi,

 

Currently, Flow doesn’t have a trigger for variables. If you do need a feature to define variables at the beginning of the flow, please submit a new idea at Flow ideas Forum, PGs will check the forum and take your idea into consideration in the future releases, I will also help collect and report it on my side.
