  • Activate Process Action if you want to use your Flow as an Action in a Process.

If you activate your Flow as a Process Action, you are also able to Define Flow Inputs and Flow Outputs for its usage as Process Action:

  • Flow Inputs are values you pass from your Process into your Action (e.g. an Answer that was given in the Process). Define a label here and fill the input value when selecting the Action in the Process Editor.
  • Flow Outputs are values you return from your Action back to your Process. You can use them as Tokens in your Process after the Action was executed.


In this section of the information tab you can examine the version history of your Flow and select a previous version.
