Let’s discuss the terms that you’ll come across while using FlowGat.
A workflow plan is a sequence of steps in a workflow. FlowGat allows the users to create multiple plans under a workflow. It allows the users to test different scenarios under the same workflow. A workflow may have multiple plans, but only a single plan can be active or running for a workflow at a given time.
A trigger is an event that launches or kick starts the workflow. You cannot launch or start the workflow manually. So, you have to set a trigger to start the action in the workflow on the basis of pre-configured criteria. The initial step should be a trigger event. Whenever the trigger event will occur in the app, the various actions that are defined in the workflow plan will be executed. A trigger can have multiple configurations.
For example, if you want to create a new customer in your Shopify account when a new customer is added, the trigger will be “new customer added”.
Types of triggers
The triggers in a FlowGat can be:
Polling trigger: Under a polling trigger, the FlowGat would check for changes from the trigger after regular intervals, say for example after every 10-15 minutes to initiate the workflow plan. The events with polling triggers are labeled as “polling” against the event in the workflow plan designer.
Instant trigger: Your trigger application will notify the FlowGat about the new changes or new data, with an instant trigger. The events with instant triggers are marked as “instant” in the workflow plan designer.
An app is an application in which the trigger event takes place. The application will indicate where the trigger event shall occur. As soon as the trigger event occurs in the application you choose, the workflow will start processing. FlowGat provides you an integration of 100+ applications such as Gmail, Yahoo, SalesForce, Shopify, Woo-commerce, QuickBooks, and a lot more.
The premium apps are the applications that are available only on paid plans. These apps comprise of business applications like SalesForce, FTP, Shopify, Quickbooks, etc. These apps are tagged as “Premium” on the workflow plan designer.
Actions are the tasks to do within a workflow plan or application. Based on the trigger event the FlowGat executes the actions that were predefined for automation in the workflow plan. A workflow plan may have one trigger and multiple actions. For example, if you want to create a new customer in your Shopify account when a new customer is added, the action will be “create a new customer”.
Auto retry is an inbuilt feature in FlowGat that prevents loss of data during a run due to technical or network issues. This feature allows you to retry the failed steps in the workflow run so that the workflow run can be successfully completed.
