Why does my Flow Screen Element not retain the previously entered value when I return to it while remaining in the Flow?
|Knowledge Article Number||000212472|
|Description||When running a Flow and returning to a Screen Element where you previously entered values, the values are not available.|
|Resolution||This is due to the new Critical Update: Behavior Change for Default Values in Flow Screen Fields:
Behavior Change for Default Values in Flow Screen Fields
This update forces screen fields to always use the default value when a flow reaches the same screen multiple times, such as in a loop.
To use a previously entered value as the default value for a screen field:
Within the loop, assign the value of the screen field to a variable.
Set the default value for the screen field to that variable.
