Workflow variable in jobpreset

Hi,

I’m using external sorter application in my jobpreset. Is there any way to pass some workflow variable to this sorter so I can use single application for multiple processes?
Sorter generally does the same thing for all processes but it needs to calculate some data that is different for each process. Do I really need to create 5 different applications just to change one parameter?

Thanks.

You could import the workflow variable into the data model during your data mapping. That way it could be passed out to the sorter via the job preset.
