Hi

especially for a better readability in large jobs it would be great to be able to redirect the output of a task directly to a job variable or variable.

E.g. I'm reading a lot of values from an xml file and I'm using this values in the following tasks (e.g. mailadress). Of course, I could directly "link" to the output of the task that looks like that: {TASK(9fedadbd-1046-46ce-b416-3cd961d76eb2,StdOut)} or insert a set-variable task.

But that's not easy to read, especially if you have to change something weeks later!

Better solution: define a job variable email and store the value in the variable. In the following tasks I'm using the variable.

Thanks, Thomas
