Save Variables that are Set by a Button to a Bookmark

I have an application I am building that a portion of it is being used to develop a rollout plan, so I am using Variables that utilize GetFieldSelections(Field) to capture the field selections in 8 different fields utilizing a Button with the Action Set a Variable with the Variable Name and the Value is GetFieldSelections(Field), when the Button is clicked it sets all of the variables for a particular Month Year combination.

The issue I am having is every time I open the application the Variables are empty.  How can I store the set variables so that the rollout plan already includes the selections for a month that has already been determined? 

I have tried Setting a Bookmark, but my Variables are not stored in the Bookmark.

Any suggestions?  I am stuck.  I believe this is the best way to accomplish what I need to do, but cannot have to redo the selections for a 24 month rollout every time the application is opened.

Thanks in advance,

Set default values of the variable when you declare them.


You can also set the variables in script if the default values are based on loaded data.
