🪄 Flows

A brief walk through of the Flow assembler's main parts

What is a Flow?

Flows are scaleable, easy-to-deploy logic bundles. Depending on your configuration, they can either be triggered manually via an API endpoint or on time increments via a Task Scheduler. Flows are built using either JavaScript or Python and are compatible with all your favorite libraries.

The Flow Editor is where you can view, edit and create custom Flow. The Flow Editor is separated into three distinct parts:

The Header

From the top of the Flow Editor, you can name, test and deploy your Flow. You can also toggle development environments. The header is sticky, so you'll always have these functions available to you, regardless of where you are in your development process.

The Canvas

The left side of the Flow Editor is called the canvas. This is where you can view the steps of your Flow, add new steps and remove steps.

The Drawer

The right side of the Flow Editor is called the drawer and it changes depending on your action. This is where you select your step type, name your steps and build the details of your step. Keep in mind, step names are emoji compatible
