Ability to declare variables inside scopes

I suggest you add the possibility to declare variables within scopes.

 

Since scopes for Microsoft Flow are designed to group actions together, to make the Flow easier to view, it would be nice to be able to declare any variables within scopes.

As of now an error is thrown stating that variables have to be declared on the top-level of the flow, even though the actual scope is added to the top-level.

Fully supportive.

 

Scopes should NOT count as "indentation" / nesting level

 

As workaround I revert now to using parallel branching to group variable initializations togetherBranchedVariableDeclaration_1-22-2018 12-48-32 PM.jpgBranched variable declarations for grouping

I think, this thread might match the following feature-request.

Maybe one of the admins could merge them?
