Form variables

In the Form variables tab of the Forms designer, you can:

  • Create variables with applied formulas to use throughout your form and workflow.
  • View, edit, and delete variables with applied formulas.

Note: All variables that you create in Start event forms are available as an object under start event variables in the workflow; while variables created in Form based tasks are available as task variables. See Manage variables in a workflow.
