New Plugin: Reusable Element Communicator by SuperStack

Proud to share a small but helpful plugin to send data and trigger events from a reusable element to the “outside world”!

:sparkles: Features

:white_check_mark: Send a Thing from inside a reusable element.

:white_check_mark: Send a non-Thing e.g. a number or a text that is generated in the reusable element but has no associated Thing.

:white_check_mark: Send a signal to trigger an event outside of the reusable element.

:white_check_mark: The reusable element can be within a repeating group.

There are two elements, both are non-visible in run mode.

  • The “Sender” sits inside the reusable element and provides a new workflow option “Publish value” which lets you send a value / thing outside to the “Receiver” element.

  • The “Receiver” sits outside of the reusable element. This provides a state called “received thing” to access what was sent from the reusable element. It also provides a “When Updated” event to allow you to trigger other workflows.

:warning: Note, the “Receiver” element cannot be placed inside a repeating group.

Refer to the plugin page and editor for usage notes. Any questions do drop a note here!

Great idea, its a pain to do this natively.

Can the reusable you are sending from, be inside a RG?

Thanks @andy.i. Yep, the reusable can be inside an RG. I often use it for context menus within RG cells.
