Insert Variables Flyout idea

The Insert Variables flyout shown when inserting variables into an action's configuration should either not close when scrolling through the action's properties, or there should be a checkbox in that flyout to not close it when scrolling through the properties, default to not checked.

I find that if I have to insert a lot of variables into an action configuration (Create Item in Office 365 for example) then if I have to scroll down to reach more fields, the flyout will close, requiring me to open it again and search for the variables I was last at to insert more variables into fields.

    Thank you very much for posting your feedback. At this time, we will not be adding this request to the near-term backlog, as we are focused on other priorites. However, we reevaluate requests every quarter and will reach out if priorities change.

    If I may offer a slight work around - If you focus the cursor into the action config panel, use Tab to navigate through the action's fields - this keeps the Variable panel open.

    Please keep the feedback coming as it is critical for our longer-term planning.
