After its completion the List Apps Action makes its variables available for further Actions in a workflow. It returns multiple lists and a count of apps. The variables can be retrieved using Variable Wizard.
The Action provides multiple lists which are sorted and filtered. Each list's items correspond to items in other lists, meaning that different lists (sequence or index) contain data about the same app.
|List of executables||List of apps and background processes that matched the specified filter criteria. The list is sorted according to the sorting rules.|
|List of IDs||List of Process IDs (aka PIDs).|
|List of app names||Friendly names of the listed programs.|
|Number of apps||Items count in the list.|
|Completion status||Retrieve Action execution status with a possible value—Successful or Failed. Or Empty, if Action has not been executed yet.|
|Adjust||Streamline creation of Task workflows even further—instantly make quick variable adjustments such as in-place replacement (all, first, or last occurrence), trimming (whitespaces, quotes, etc.), or changing capitalization. Optionally, set a different display name.|
Automatic list processing…
The List Apps variables returned as lists (even multi-level) can be automatically processed in further Actions. Use the For Each Action to parse a given text string (any list variable) and sequentially retrieve its elements one by one · see list processing examples. Or, use the Split Text and Lookup Text Actions to access list elements by their indices.
