Automation: Add "current value" to 'ask user'-option

When setting a field value within an automation to “ask user for input” I would want the current value of that field (if one exists) to be preselected (or at least shown somewhere).
We use a button to estimate tasks - quite often we also reestimate these tasks (with a click of a button) and it would be very helpfull to see the current estimate before giving the input.

One minor challenge with ‘prefilling with the current value’ is that a button action could be operating on a batch of entities, in which case, there wouldn’t be a single value to show.
Obviously, this can be accommodated, but it needs to be taken into account.

In the case of multiple entities with different values for a field, the “current value” option could simply be shown as something like “<current value>” .
