Assembly admins determine who has permission to create flows. By default, the flow owner is the person who initially creates the flow, however the flow owner can be changed at any time throughout the creation or editing process. Only the flow owner can edit the flow.
At the moment we only offer one type of action - create an app. Any flow with create an app as an action type will prompt participants to fill out a sequence of blocks and the content/answers will be distributed and visible to all viewers.
Use create an app to ask questions, gather information, and automate workflows – you’ll be able to customize what you ask with a variety of block types including (but not limited to) multiple-choice, scale, open ended, and more advanced blocks like prompting a participant to give a person points. To select an action:
The trigger determines how the flow runs. The flow can either run at a scheduled date and time, or it can run on-demand, where the flow owner triggers it manually.
Use this trigger when you don’t want to run a flow on any particular schedule (on a specific day and time). On demand flows can be run once or multiple times, but they must be triggered manually by the flow owner and will not run automatically. To select an on demand trigger type:
Use this trigger for a flow you’d like to automate to run on a regular cadence, or even if you want it to run a flow only once but schedule it for a specific day and time. To select a scheduled date and time trigger:
Participants are the only people who can respond to a flow. Participants are determined by criteria selected in the builder during this step.
You can combine criteria within the same group or between different groups. If adding criteria within the same group, you can select whether the participants need to match all of the criteria or any of the criteria.
When combining criteria within the same group, selecting participant matches any means anyone who matches any of the selected criteria will be included as a participant.
For example, selecting Department is Product and Department is Engineering with participant matches any selected will include any member whose department is product or engineering.
When combining criteria within the same group, selecting participant matches all means the participants must match all of the criteria within the same group.
For example, selecting Department is Product and Name is not Katya Bachrouche with participant matches all will include everyone in the Product except for Katya Bachrouche.
When combining criteria between groups, selecting or participant matches means anyone who matches the criteria in one group OR the criteria in the second group will be included as a participant.
When combining criteria between groups, selecting and participant matches means anyone who matches the criteria in one group AND the criteria in the second group will be included as a participant.
Viewers are the only people who can see the responses to a flow. Whoever is included as a viewer can see all the flow posts in the main feed, flow feed, and profile feed.
Selecting everyone will allow anyone who joins or leaves your Assembly to see all of your flow’s responses.
Selecting participants only allows only the flow’s participants to see all of your flow’s responses. Remember, flow owners will always have visibility, even if they are not a participant when this option is selected.
Selecting owner only for visibility will only allow flow owners to view all of your flow’s responses. Remember, participants will always be able to see their own responses even if visibility is configured to be only the flow owner.
Selecting custom for visibility will allow you to select specific viewers for your flow. Please see the participant criteria section above for more information about selecting customer visibility. Remember, flow owners will always be able to see all responses and participants will always be able to view their own responses.
Each flow will have a set of blocks for the participants to fill out. Whether you’re using a template or creating a flow from scratch, the content section will allow you to customize the blocks (questions or statements) you want to include in your flow.
These blocks will collect information from the participants. You can add and combine as many of these blocks as you’d like within your flow. To adjust the advanced settings for each block, click the gear icon for that block to configure them. To delete a block, click the three-dotted menu for that block.
We currently offer one advanced collection block, which is our Give a person points stack. This combines a person selection block with a give points block.
