Multiple assign activity improvement

Thanks to UiPath we could assign multiple variables in a single activity :+1:

However the activity should be improved to allow moving assign statements up/down in the list.

Use case: A new assign statement needs to be defined and it’s result should be used in one of existing assign statement(s).

In current design this could be only achieved by deleting and recreating the existing assign statement(s) in the new order. Which is indeed annoying :frowning:

Hi,
Thank you for your suggestion. I added it to our internal ideas tracker for our team to consider.

Bump up. Any plans to implement this? This is actualy limiting usability of this activity :frowning:

Cheers

Hi :slight_smile:,
Process of checking and eventual design and implementing the solution is little bit long. Anyway what I can tell is that your feedback is on the next step. However I don’t know any date when and if it will be implemented.

Hi,
I just found that new assign is added below the currently selected assign. This partly solves the requirement. Not sure if it is by design or by accident :slight_smile:

Cheers

Hi :slight_smile:
Could you explain?

Yes.
When I press “Add” while the first assign is selected

a new assign is added just below

Sorry for late response. I was waiting for feedback from our devs.
So seems that it was working always this way :slight_smile:
We wanted to have possibility to re-arrange lines but this required to make a huge code change so it was designed for at least this way.

@Pablito
Is it possible to comment out one of the assign statements in the multiple assign activity?

Unfortunately not, as it’s part of the whole activity.
