πŸš€ – Start building your first workflow

We recommend that you arrange the components / your workflow from left to right – for the sake of clarity only πŸ˜‰. If you move the mouse pointer over the respective component in the sidebar, you will get a short description of its function. By the way, you will find an overview of all components plus descriptions in our component library. If you want to use on of our example flows, see here.
