You create a step by using a no-code, drag-and-drop workflow builder.
To add a step in the workflow, click +Add step. Next, select your step type from the drop-down.
Your step can be one of the following types:
A basic step that consists of one - or multiple - form fields. Useful when a clear task needs to be done within the process. For example Submit customer claim details.
A step that allows you to review information passed in the previous steps. You can approve the information and proceed to the next step or return to any previous step. For example Approve customer claim.
Use grouped steps to create a set of sub-steps that belong together. This way, if you want to set conditions to steps, you'll be able to create conditions on multiple steps at once. You can create steps in a group or drag and drop any step into a group.
This allows you to work on several steps in parallel. Useful when multiple teams can work in parallel or if there is no dependence between your steps. For example, Process customer claim can consist of Submit data to claims platform and Notify customer.
In the following example steps 2.1 to 2.4 will be run in parallel.
You can create parallel sub-steps by hovering over a step and clicking the plus icon or dragging and dropping any other step into the parallel group.
