About Simple Flows

Overview

Simple Flows are a linear sequence of steps that are built using a simplified version of the pre-existing Flow Designer, known as the Simple Flow Designer meant to aid Designers with minimal Flow design experience.

When would a Designer best use a Simple Flow?

  • Repetitive business processes with variation, examples include:
    • Marketing email drip campaigns
    • Manufacturing processes such as Corrective Action Steps
    • QA Processes involving multiple similar but slightly different products
    • Business process outsourcing
  • Bottom-up business process planning often seen with collaboration between the Decisions Developer/Designer and a Business Process Expert
    • The Designer builds the steps within Simplified Workflow and sends it to the Business Process Expert to build a full Workflow.


The Simple Flow Designer only allows access to user-configured Simple Flow Steps which are designed to act as individual points within a business process. They provide all the power of a full-sized Flow but act as a single step within a Simple Flow.

The steps within this designer are interchangeable and can also be reorganized according to a user’s needs. For a Designer, these Flows can be packaged together to execute various commonly performed activities.
