#Flow – Working with variables in #MicrosoftFlow

Hello!

One of the most missed features in Microsoft Flow was the chance to work with variables in a Flow. I’ve worked with other visual work flow editors, and this is usually a delicate issue. Mainly because, as programmers we want all the power of a programming language to work vars.

However, in a tool like Microsoft Flow, we only need basic operations like work with basic types, increase counters and validate values. This is what we can see in the actions to work with Variables

When you define a variable, it must have a name, a type, and a default value.

Important: Even if value is not a required field, I have had problems with “not initializing a variable”. Back to C++ Days!!

In addition to being able to set the value of a variable, we can increase the value of a variable, if the var is a numeric type. The classic example of this is a Do Until loop.

Happy Coding ! 😀
