Checkout this example activiti-examples/stencil-samples/simple-text-input-stencil at master · cijujoseph/activiti-examples... , especially the controller code which does things like onFormRender and others.. It is an app zip and the stencil gets imported along with the app if you import my example app.

I tested your process and I could see that the variables are saved as expected. My guess is that you are looking into act_ru_variables. When the process completes, your variables will be present in act_hi_varinst.

Hi, 

Your process has two user tasks. Below are the screenshots of the completed process at my end. 

User Task 1

The reason why your 1st text box is empty is because you are refering it to a variable called label. Where as your second one is referred with a variable name "name". 

User Task 2

I can see things working as expected. I think you should look at your own form designs and the way you want them. The reason why it is empty is because we did not give any value to it.

There was a blog witten by Ciju Joseph‌ on Stencils here https://community.alfresco.com/community/bpm/blog/2017/05/01/form-stencil-examples-alfresco-process-... . I can see an example of a simple form stencil which I can see as working as per our context here (Its persisting the data of the field) . The only difference is in the Form runtime template. 

‌ can you please help us understand a bit more on the form runtime template ?

Yeah those examples are working, it worked for me too..

A RUNTIME template means after you publish the process whats the appearance and you need to write angular 1 code according to the requirement. EDITOR template means at the design time how it should appear. You can go through the example more.
