How to clear text input history

Hello, I have a very simple flow with a button. You click the button, input text in three fields and then it will send an e-mail. The issue I am facing is that the button will remember all the previous inputs. So the first time I ran this flow I put in Test1, Test2 and Test3 in the text input fields. When I go for another test and click the text input field, it pops up showing me Test1 and so on. How do I clear this data and how do I stop it from remembering previous inputs? Best Regards, Martin

Hi @marhol,

 

Are you using a Button to trigger the flow? Do you have three text input fields in the trigger?

 

I have made a simple test according to your description, however, I am not able to reproduce this issue on my side. There is no previous input appears when I do another test.

 

Could you share more details to help reproduce this issue?

 

 

Best regards,

Mabel Mao

I, too, had this problem with the app. In my case, I am prompting the user for a 17 digit project number and my fear is that if the user inputs their project number wrong the first time they will always enter it wrong because of the autocomplete. I don't want to turn autocomplete off entirely (I don't believe you can) because it can be a great help for users, assuming they entered it right the first time.

 

Here's what I have found - there is no setting within the Flow app to clear history or anything similar. Instead, go to your device's "app info" menu (I'm using Android), then select Flow and find storage -> clear data. Select that. When you return to the app you will be prompted to login again, but thankfully the autocomplete entries will be gone.

 

Simply clearing the cache does not create the desired result.

Hello, I have the same problem. I created simple flow trigerred by the button. When I start the flow again I see the history of previous inputs scrolled down. I checked it on iOS and Android and both have the same issue. I haven't found any solution yet. Do you have any suggestions? On the image below there is how it looks. Letter "K" was my previous input for the first textbox.

 

Best regards
