Set variable

Build your own automation solution. The ThinkAutomation studio allows you to design unlimited automations across your stack, with any volume of custom actions and connections. One small but important building block in orchestrating your workflows is the option to set variables.

Set variable – overview

  • This action will create or set a ThinkAutomation variable (a place holder for a specific value)
  • Many other actions can return values which can then be assigned to variables
  • Each variable must be given a variable name
  • You can optionally assign variables with a value
  • Values can be fixed, or the value of another variable or extracted field
  • They can also be a combination (using %field% replacements)

Set variable – use cases

  • Use variables in your actions alongside extracted fields
  • Return data to a placeholder for further processing
  • Fire automations based on the results of a value
