Variable name for custom outcomes?

I am new to Activiti so please excuse my ignorance.  I have installed activiti-app and I am trying to create a simple process with a simple flow condition.  I have created a process with a "Start Event" that references a form with nothing but "Possible Outcomes" of "Accept" and "Reject".  This event flows to a "User Task" assigned to myself and an "End Event".  The flow to the "End Event" is set up as the default flow.  I would like to modify the flow condition to the "User Task" to be conditional upon the custom outcomes from the form referenced by the "Start Event".  I would expect to be able to use something like "${status == "Accept"}" or "${status == 'Accept'}" or "${status == "Accept"}" or "${outcome == 'Accept'}" but the only thing that seems to keep from generating an error is "${1 == 1}"  I suspect that I am not using the right variable name associated with the custom outcomes of the form.  I have downloaded and included the xlm for my process here:

But I don't see anything here that would help me know what the name of this variable should be.
