Tables are a powerful way to save data/results from a previous Step in a Flow and which you may want to utilize later on in your Flow.
An example: say you transcribed some media and you saved the transcript results to a Table. You can then use these transcript results in a subsequent step to turn them into captions and burn those captions into media itself. You can save the URL to this captioned video back in the Table to easily preserve a record of it.
