Question on preventing ARD Global variables from showing up in tile in the TDM PortalSerlf Service screen

I am trying to use variables within ARD to help simplify some of the logic for a couple of my Publish Tiles. 
Currently, I think I have the variables created/configured to correctly impact the workflow, however, the variable is showing up in the tile when I try to publish and I do not want it to, is there a way to prevent this from happening, or perhaps another way to get the same functionality I am trying to achieve with a variable? 



TDM 4.9.1

Component: TDM Web Portal

ARD 3.1



Using the latest portal patch, you can hide global variables by adding hidden to the global variable description
any patch post 4.9.324.0 would do
added hidden to ProductLvl1 and ProductLvl2 whereas ProductLvl3 does not have


The latest version of the TDM Portal patch can be downloaded from the below link.
