FieldName constant in Generate Rows Tools (and others ...)

Would be nice to make it so if I change from RowCount to index it all is linked together.

 

Something like a $FieldName$ which would automatically get substituted. 

 

Also nice in other formula tools, but most useful in places where name needs to be duplicated over and over

Agree with James's idea - here's a screenshot to illustrate the point.

This would a nice upgrade. People always wonder what the RowCount field represents in my workflows. I would actually set the field name in the generate rows if it updated the condition and loop expressions for me.
