Analytic app - repeating field from text input

I have a text input just the one below in more than one tool in my workflow. Some of them are asking for the user to provide the same information.

Because of that, iIn analytic app the user is getting more than one field to fill with the same information. It is not a huge problem but it is weird to have the user writing the same information twice or three times.. Any thoughts on how I can connect the same text input/action to multiple tools instead of adding one per tool and duplicating the inputs in app ?

Hi @jackersantos ,

 

This takes only a few steps. We start with our first text box configured (1)

step 1.png

Then we create the necessary copies of our action tools (2)

step 2.png

Then we connect the (Q) anchor of the text box to each action tool (Q) anchor (3)

step 3.png

 

 

 

 

Does this help?

 

Best,

I will add, you don't need to use the same Action tool, they can be configured differently!
