Site Flow Cache Problem

I built a Visual Flow process that assigns a value to a variable then uses this variable to lookup a Contact from the database. When I try to change the value after a match has been found by clicking the 'Previous' button, change the search input, click the 'Next' button, it still gives me the result of my first match. It seems that clicking the 'Next' button doesn't resubmit the form or there is a cache of some kind.


Does anybody have the same issue?

Are you viewing the variable via a default value inserted into a text field?


If so, this is a VERY annoying limitation built in to the design of flows whereby the values entered into the text fields are cached.


If you view the contacts via a dynamic choice, radio buttons for example, you won't get this issue. Also if you enter it into the (non user editable) text display output, this will work too.
