We can store the field values into a workflow variable.
For that first we need to create a variable and then assign values into it.
1. Create a workflow variable: From the ribbon you can select local variables and create as shown in below image.
2. Assign values to variable: From actions menu we need to select an OOB action
Set Workflow Variable which allow us to set variable values. Refer below mage
3. Set values: Now once you have an action in your stage, click on
workflow variable link a drop down with an option of your variable will open, select it. Then click on
value link, a pop up will open from which you select field of current item.
Well to create a dynamic string we still use the set variable action, I guess this
Build Dynamic String action is not available in 2013 SPD.
To set any dynamic string in a variable refer the below screen shots
1. So first add action
set workflow variable and click on
2. you will see the similar string builder which was in 2007SPD and here you concatenate string with a combination your own prefix or suffix with a current item value.
Once you get the value in variable, you can use this variable any where in your workflow.
