Build a workflow: Add or remove workflow managers

To allow other people to edit a workflow you've created, you can add them as a workflow manager. Workflow managers have the same permissions as the workflow creator and can take the following actions:

  • Change a workflow’s name, description, and custom icon
  • Edit or remove workflow steps
  • Adjust workflow permissions
  • View workflow activity
  • Unpublish or delete a workflow
  • Add or remove other workflow managers

Note: Owners and admins can add themselves as workflow managers to any published workflow from the workflow dashboard. If you add yourself to a workflow in a private channel you don’t belong to, you won't be able to see the name of the channel.
