The Variable category features Actions that allows to extend the data flow among Actions as well as to perform math operations on arbitrarily large numbers and variables.
Custom variable names can be of any length and support unicode characters, allowing to apply truly versatile naming schemes for dynamic context-specific values. When using variables for storing numerical data, it is possible to store, increment or subtract very small and very large numbers, both positive and negative. Scientific or exponential notation is supported as well.
Set Variable allows to create or update a custom variable and write a value into it.
Append to Variable is used to prepend or append text to existing variable. The text can contain Unicode symbols and other variables.
Modify Global Variable Action is used to change a value of a global variable. The changed value is then visible to all Tasks or workflows on a single server or workstation. To create or modify global variables manually use the Global Variables Manager.
Increment Variable adds a specified amount to variables that contain numeric value.
Decrement Variable subtracts a specified amount from variables that contain numeric value.
Arithmetic performs basic arithmetic operations—addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square root, and modulo operations. Every operation supports extremely large numbers while maintaining precision.
Automation Workshop is an awesome piece of software. It will save us thousands of man hours this year alone!—Chuck W.
