Hello @MostafaBouzari,


The only way to do it would be to give it a specific name, for example:


Input-> App1 -> Output1

Output1 -> App2 -> Output2




Using temp files is not an option since they are two separate files.


If you have ultiple users running the same app and don't want them to interfere with each other then I would recommend you using the textbox with the parameter __cloud:UserId which would return you the name of each user:


You could then append it to the output and have it checked again for the input.
