Writing Variable outputs

Hi! 

 

  I'm having a hard time with a flow mostly because I don't know exactly what the variables are actually holding. So I tried to get clever and write the variables out to an excel file, but that's not working. Any quick easy ways to output a variable to some sort of document in sharepoint? I'm just wanting to see what the hold and the details after the flow runs either don't show up (usually grayed out) or don't give great data.

Re: Writing Variable outputs

SharePoint and Word templates take multiple actions and you have to deal with permissions, so for quick sanity checks, I use the "Send an email" action to send myself the dynamic info that is generated. I think that's the fastest way to get what you're looking for.

Re: Writing Variable outputs

That's a brilliant idea! The variables I created aren't available in the Dynamic Content pop-out for some reason. I suppose I could just put the data that I entered into the variables into the email.
