You should be using "Input

You should be using "Input Request" to do what you are trying to do.

 

  1. Add "Create Input Request" to your workflow
  2. Configure the question you want the user to see in the Web Console. For example, "Select make of your dream car"
  3. Add "questions" to your input request. For the "drop-down" selection, chose to add new question of type "Select". This will bring up the dialog box that will allow you to configure the unique ID for your question, the free form text (label) and the list of selection choices to show in the drop-down.
  4. In the activities that follow "Create Input Request" you can retrieve the actual values that the user chose/typed by looking at the values in the [Workflow.Create Input Request.Task.Questions] table property. It has several columns: Id, Question, Value (that correspond to the fields you've configured)
    1. If you have Input request with several questions, you can use Select from Table activity to choose the specified question (by ID) that you want the value for. If you have only one question in the input request, you can get to the value (entered by the end user) by referencing this property [Workflow.Create Input Request.Task.Questions.First Row.Value]
