Flows & Connections
Flows created in Ziflow enable you to automate tasks on your cloud storage. A flow can be one simple task that is performed by one of our Zibots (such as creating a PDF) or a combination of tasks bundled together (such as: create a PDF, FTP the file & send an email notification). The flows are triggered by events such as a file moving into a certain folder on your cloud storage.
The flow screen contains a few basic functions to choose from:
- Create flow - starts a new flow in your account. Read more about creating new flows.
- Search - a handy tool to find the flow you are looking for very quickly. As you type in the search bar it will display the results in real time.
- Filters - there are two types of filters you can choose from: Created by or Status
- Flow list - gathers all flows created by you and your teammates inside your Ziflow account. It can also be used for checking actions that have been executed by the flows. All available options can be found in this article
In order to create your own proofs you need to start with linking your Ziflow with Google Drive or Dropbox storages.
First of all you will need to decide which cloud storage you want to synchronize with your Ziflow account (of course you can link multiple cloud environments if needed). You can choose from:
You may also want to integrate your Ziflow with third-party applications such as Slack and Basecamp so tasks and processes can be automated even further.
