Combine text fields

In Flowfinity, you can have users input data in separate fields, and automatically combine them in a single location that can be copied and pasted.

Example

Users must enter address information for a customer. In order to ensure all components of an address are entered, they are entered into different fields. However, the process then requires the address to be available in a single field for input into another system.
