Increment / Decrement the value of a variable

This feature allows you to increase or decrease the value of a variable with each pass over the sequence.

If the concept of a variable is totally abstract for you, I advise you to consult the following article before continuing: All about {{…}} variables.

1. Use

Among the construction features, click on “Variables” and then, in the menu that opens, click on “Increment” or “Decrement”.

Let’s create a new sequence with an Increment feature.
We will choose the variable“myVariable” and put in the value field the value 2.

When the bot executes this function, it will add 2 to the value of the”myVariable” variable

Let’s check the result with the help of a Text feature:

Let’s run the bot to see the result:

In this example myVariable initially had the value 5. The value of the variable has changed, it is now 7 (5+2).

The logic of the Decrement feature is identical except that instead of adding a value, we subtract it.
