Editing an object

The Values tab in the drawing tool lists all the values available in our current tenant. Objects are values of a certain type, and can be found here. We edit an object by clicking the Edit icon (rather appropriately, the one that looks like a pencil), making the necessary changes, and saving the value again.

Let’s try editing an object ourselves now:

  1. Click Values.

    This opens the Values tab.
  2. Let’s find the object value we want to update, and click the Edit icon next to it.

    This opens the screen where we can update our object configurations.
  3. Click Save Value when done.

    This saves the object with the updated configuration.

One thing to be mindful of.. Objects are shared elements. If we are using this object across multiple flows, the changes will be reflected across all flows.
