Some flows have 10 or more variable initilizations (is this a word?). It would be amazing if we could group (and label the group) the like actions together and then minimize them as to not clutter the design surface.
This is a great idea! Please implement, MS!
This would be really helpful - many flow have a large group of variables to initialize, and the section makes it harder to read. Being able to group them would assist in readability.
This would be a great idea. Please, MS, give us this. You don't need to provide any extra fancy functionality, just a basic grouping would be awesome.
Yes please! I almost had a stupid workaround in place involving doing a "apply to each" Action with the expression array('a') as the target, but it won't let you do variable initialization anywhere but at the root.
I came up with a work-around, but it doesn't work for initializing variables since they have to be at the top level. Create a condition that will always be true (1 = 1), then put the actions you want to group into the Yes side. Use the condition name to remind you that it's a group instead of a condition.
100% agree that something like this would be great to have.
Another member on this forum suggested using a parallel branch(es) to break out variables into two branches. This would help cut down on having a full page of variables stacked up.
I use scopes to minimize other actions, but collapsing the initialize variable actions is not available.
I like @ques0buffet's idea .
But if something OOB is available that could be great.
It would also be great if we could use scopes with the initialize variable node. Currently you can't initialize a variable within a scope which would be awesome if we could. That would also solve the grouping all the initialize nodes too. Additionally, some variables should be scoped to a 'scope' and not globally.
Wonderful Idea and should implement. Workflow gets too lengthy, hard to analyze
