Create your first workflow

In this tutorial you will learn what is and how you to create Workflow.

In this app you will create a request, send it and accept or reject it. For the purpose of simplifying it all of the actions will be done by te same person.


In workflow you can use two types of elements: states and actions.

Create new states in the left corner of the workflow tab.Add actions by clicking a small arrow on a state and dragging it to another state.

 Change states and actions names by clicking on them and editing the 'name' field in 'options' tab.


Create new app, and go to the 'Workflow' view.

States that you need to create:

-new request






Then add actions:

-create a request

2.Adding actionsteps on enter/ on leave and on action

On enter, on leave or on action you can add different actionsteps. One example of an actionstep is: "add editors".

To be able to accept or reject a request you need to add yourself as an editor. Here's how to do it:

 2.a click on a action 

2.b add an actionstep and choose 'add editors' or 'set editors' from the list

2.c write your email address there


In this particular app you will need to add yourself as an editor in action 'create a request' and in 'send' action.
