Chained App doesn't present intermediate files to Users

Hi All!


Just wondering if the following is expected behaviour or not (and if is, why it is :D).


I have built a chained application, I want my user to be able to made edits to the file generated in step 1, which they then feed themselves into step 2 via a file browse.


Locally, this works fine, but on server, the intermediate file doesn't appear and it just goes through to step 2.


Expected behaviour or no?


Example app attached :D




@BenMoss I want to dig in more to this, but my immediate thought is that the person running the app on the server may not have read access to the location where the file is saved by default. And if not..perhaps that is why it doesn't pop up? Maybe trying saving the step1 file output to a shared drive that the end user has access to (instead of to the same folder path as the app itself) and see if that changes the behavior?
