File category in Variable Wizard provides option to retrieve input parameters from specified text file instead of providing these values manually. Read from file option allows changing settings of Action merely by replacing specified file, thus effectively expanding and facilitating Action configuring capabilities.

Note the availability of functionally similar Read from file Action which expands this option even more by adding possibility to flexibly specify input file based on previous Trigger or Action output.
