Let us put Initialize Variables into a Scope if the Scope is at the top

I get why you want Initialize actions at the top but PLEASE let me put them in a Scope at the top. Because I cant copy actions Im building a TON of variables to hold blocks of text and dynamic content that I can reuse so I have like 30 Initialize Actions at the top that I cant hide. 😞

Thank you for the suggestion.

I agree with that. I'm trying to group things together in order to have an easier to read flow, especially on long or complex flows. Unfortunately, I end up with a bunch of variables initialize action at the top of my flows. It would be very nice to have the ability to group them in a scope.

hear hear.  Scope is one of the best actions for making a Flow easy to read.  But unfortunately Initialising variable Actions are the ones i'd most like to hide

Thanks for condering this, it would be really nice to tidy up the Flow and I also use it later when I set the variables.

THis would be great to do - my flows are so messy at the moment 


Even if it were a special Variables Scope that would be enough

Yes please, grouping initializations in a scope would a top improvement for flow lisibility !

Agreed... so messy right now for some variables I might not even use in a branch.

This is just low-hanging fruit. This should be easy to implement while still adding a lot of value!

Yes to this! This would be amazing.

yes, it would be nice if we could put all these Init Variable actions into one scope called Initialize Variables:
