Action that stores input from user in a variable that later can be used in a script action

Some times a bundle depends on some type of information from the user.

It would be helpful to have an action which takes text input where you could ask the user a question and store the answer in a variable. This variable could then be used in a script action.

The variable can be cleared after the last action.

This feature could be added to the current Prompt User action and that would make it much more useful.

Agree that would be quite useful.  Also some type of definable Radio Button to minimize the users needing to type a value to make a choice.  A type entry may be needed in some cases, other times it may be a choice of items.

Exactly what I was thinking. A radio button that enables a text input box which stores the input in a predefined variable.
