Guide Getting Started

This guide is for new users to learn how to use Embed Workflow.

Embed Workflow is an easy-to-use platform built with simplicity in mind.

A typical flow:

  • set your data fields
  • create and design your form using those data fields
  • add actions to your workflow (slack notification, email, text message, webhooks, etc.)
  • embed your form and start sharing it with people

We will do a quick walk-through of this flow.

Getting Started with Embed Workflow

1- Create a free Embed Workflow account

Let’s create a free Embed Workflow account for this guide. All you need is an email address to open an account. If you already have one, great, then log in and go to your dashboard.

Once you register, you should receive an email to confirm your account to ensure email notifications work as expected.

2- Create a Workflow

Click the “New Workflow” button from your dashboard and name it “Getting Started Review” (or whatever you like).

3- Add your fields

Navigate to “Fields” and add a Name, Email, and Message.

Fields

4- Create your form

Now head over to “Forms” to use the drag and drop form editor to create our Getting Started Form.

  • Add the header “Getting Started Review”
  • Add an image.
  • Add Name, Email, and Message
  • Save

Form

5- Design your workflow

Once you receive a form submission, your workflow will begin. You can add emails, text messages, tasks, delays, slack notifications, etc.

Let’s add an email notification.

  • Open the Workflow Builder.
  • Add an email action and name it Email Notification
  • Edit the action
  • Set Recipient Email Address to: “{{ Account Email }}” so we email ourselves.
  • Set Subject to “New Email Notification!”
  • Set Body to (Adjust tags if needed): Name: Email: Message:

Email Notification Action

6- Submit your form

Time to test our workflow! Head back to your form (Forms -> Getting Started Form). Copy the form URL and open it in a new browser. Fill out the form and submit!

In your workflow dashboard, you should see new data coming in.

Note: Don’t see it? Check if it was flagged as spam and ensure the workflow is set to Auto Start.
