Create a custom variable without having to ask a question

Posted on by 28

Is it possible to create a variable within a Power Virtual Agent topic without having to ask a question?


My bot asks a series of questions with the aim of configuring a product package. I would like create a variable called something like PackageName, assign it a value manually so that I can then pass this into a database or SharePoint list for reporting purposes.

    Hi @Daveed73 ,


    Today, unfortunately, you can't set a value into the variable without creating a question.

    I recommend you to set manually the value into the Power Automate.
