Auto-retry is a powerful feature that helps in preventing data loss in a workflow run due to temporary issues or API downtime. It allows the failed workflow step to reprocess to ensure the successful completion of the workflow run.
A workflow step might fail during a run, so enabling auto retry makes sure that the failed step be retried again so that the entire workflow run does not fail.
Whenever the workflow run will encounter a failed step, FlowGat will retry the step that failed due to some temporary or network issues. Auto-retry will only retry the failed steps and not the ones that have successfully completed. For instance, a workflow plan may have two actions sending SMS and add a new worksheet. If the workflow run successfully executes the action of sending the SMS but is unable to add a new worksheet, auto- retry will only reprocess add a new worksheet, and not the action of sending SMS.
If you’re on a starter plan or higher, you can enjoy this feature.
