[REQUEST] Scenario Specific Table/Data Store

There are cases where using the switch() function is good for small use cases but problematic when managing many variables and the data store is overkill.

I hate wasting my data store limit of 1MB when I might be storing 30 or so static values. Here’s my suggestion to have an extra tab to the scenario area, that will allow us to create 1 data store/table that can only be used within that scenario. I’m happy for that table/data store to have a max limit of 1MB, but it shouldn’t impact the MB storage quota that applies to data stores.

It should be a new module (perhaps called Table) that works very similar to the data store.

What do you guys think?

You can even hard-code your static values in a Parse JSON module, if you’re more comfortable with that.

How would you do a lookup? Using the map() function?

It depends. Can you provide an example/sample scenario of what you need to do?

If you have access to custom variables you can also use that to store persistent data to be used in the scenario. These are available on the Pro plan or higher I believe. There are Team variables available as well on the Teams plan that let’s you store a set of custom variables at the team level available to all scenarios in that team.

On Pro plans or higher scenario inputs are also available to be used for on-demand execution of a scenario, this allows you to enter the necessary data to start a scenario using a form input. These can be executed via a separate scenario which includes a Make “Run a scenario” module using the Make app and dynamically enter the necessary data to pre-fill the scenario inputs during execution.
