Workflow Builder offers a set of tools to help you automate routine tasks and processes in Slack. Workflows can be as simple or as complex as you like, and can even be connected to other apps and services that you use to get work done.
Note: We’re introducing the new version of Workflow Builder gradually. Visit Introducing new Slack platform features and pricing for an overview of what’s changed.
