Can we input a variable to the Type into activity

I need to type in a value in a empty field where the value is changing everytime, is it possible that the Type into activity takes in a variable…


Yes, you can use “Type into Activity” and check the empty field properties.

Empty field properties use to type the value for dynamic changing every time and remove the previous value.

Hope it helps.Otherwise let me know with more details.

Actually the value for count will change everytime so if I put “count” in double quotes will it take the value of count ? value of count is an integer coming from another workflow

If you want to put a variable inside a type into , it should be without quotes, otherwise you will write count (always same value) and this is not the meaning of a variable .
assign activity =>>> count = what it is changing all the time.

Thank…but the problem is that Type into activity accepts values only in quotes. so if I put count.ToString , will it accpe the value of count which is dynamic.

Yes it will.
You are converting the Integer Datatype to String
