Why can't a Custom Dialog script set a variable?
In my database, I use frequent Custom Dialog script steps to gather information from the user.
I find it puzzling that the Custom Dialog script step can only set a pre-defined field and cannot simply place the user's answer in a variable, either local or global.
Instead, I need to place the answer into a field (I use a global foield), use the information, then clear the field. It adds extra unnecessary steps.
Am I missing something?
Could such a simple concept be impossible to implement for a reason I don't perceive?
