Add Notes to Flow Runs

Sure would be nice to notate what changed between tests in Flow!

Example:

- Why go dig for what changed between these runs...

...when I could see a short note between "(3 min ago)" and "00:00:00" that reads "Added quotes to header", etc.

 

This would make iterating, testing and enhancing Flows a bit cleaner with a kind of change history.

Notes would popup when clicking "Test".

Thank you

As it stands now, PA workflow history gives you no info on what the workflow is doing, what record it is working on.  Even adding a unique flow ID that is displayed in the history and is available within the flow to save out to a log file   
My first Action is all of my flows is a Compose action containing: 
Title: [Title or Name column] ([Item ID])  Ver: [Item Version]

It's still a pain to open each history to find the one I'm looking for.

Yes! I was going to submit a similar idea - let me add a little more to this...

Currently Flow Runs/history has Start | Duration | Status...

  • Consider adding a fourth column called Note or Message or similar - this could have a maxchar limit applied.
  • Within Flows, add a new action where we can write to this - which we can use anywhere and multiple times in a flow, with the last instance taking precedence from the previous.

The above would offer some really neat and handy scenarios:

  • For child-flows, distinguish different input values, eg: "Action: Add", "Action: Remove"
  • Summary result eg "23 added"
  • Approval stage eg "Reviewed", "Approved"
  • etc...
