Template your variables

Refer back to answers already given in your flow.
Sometimes you want to refer back to answers already collected in your flow and display those answers to a responder. A common use case of this is calling the responder by their first name, or reminding them of a choice they had selected in a previous question. This is called templating variables.

How to do it in the Studio

  • In this flow, I asked a Text question to ask the pet’s name, and I named the variable pets_name
  • In my next two steps, I insert the answer variable pets_name from that question in double brackets.
You can always see a list of the variables you have available to you in the side bar under variables:
