Flows & Connections

Flows

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 in-to a certain folder on your cloud storage.

Flow screen contains few basic functions to choose from:

  1. Create flow - starts a new flow on your account. Read more about creating new flows.
  2. Search - it is 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.
  3. Filters - two types of filters that allow user to filter the flows by the flow creator and information if the flows are active or inactive
  4. Flow list - gathers all flows created by you and your teammates inside the Ziflow. It can be also used for checking actions that were executed by the flows. All available options under the flows are explained in this article
