Shared elements are elements we can share across multiple flows. These elements are ‘global’ for the tenant, and lets us build once and re-use the elements for different flows. A type is one such Flow shared element.
Here is how we can import a type to a flow:
- Click Shared Elements on the right-hand-side navigation in the canvas.
This opens the Shared Elements dialog box, listing all the values, pages, types, services, and macros in our flow.
- Click Types to open the Types tab.
This lists all the types that are already available to be used in the flow.
- Click Import Existing.
This lists all the types available in our tenant.
- Click the Import button next to the type we want to import. Say, Best Grunge Songs.
- Click Close to close the dialog box.
This imports the type to our flow.
