Configure App Values When Scheduling Analytical Apps in Gallery

When scheduling an analytical app on Gallery, there is no UI for submitting app values. This significantly limits the value of scheduling workflows and using analytical apps. With this feature, it would allow our users to have more flexible scheduling while also simply maintaining one workflow. Because this feature doesn't exist, we have had to build workarounds by either creating multiple workflows or utilizing APIs. 

 

Since this feature is already available for manual runs and APIS (shown below), it shouldn't be a reach to also have this feature when scheduling a run.

 

Manual Method:

API Method: GET /workflows/{appId}/questions

 

Scheduling Method (no app questions):

@elsastark I love this idea! It would be a nice upgrade.

 

I think it's similar to these 2 ideas, perhaps the votes on all 3 can be combined :)

I support this idea.

The similar idea was raised years ago, and its status is "Accepted". I'm wondering when/which version is this feature enabled?
