Quick Tip - Keeping App and Stored Variables from breaking when copying from My Screens

I have a screen template I use that has all sorts of “Helper” function. But every time I add it to a project, all of the app and stored variables break requiring a lot of work to point them to the current project version of those variables. Examples are the stored email address of the currently authenticated user

An easy fix just dawned on me. Rather than use the normal app or stored variable blocks, I specify the variables by a text value.



why dont u make it to

Hmm… that seems like a wise workaround. I would think it would not break if you also initialized the variables on that same saved screen. Although maybe it then breaks any existing variables on non-saved screens. But your method takes away that requirement anyway… I like it!
