Create a flow

The flow editor lets you integrate with external systems by creating flows. A flow includes several blocks connected into a pipeline. You can invoke a flow by calling a spreadsheet function.

To create a flow:

  1. In an empty cell, start typing "create" until Create new flow... is displayed.
  2. Click on Create new flow.... The Flow Name dialog appears.
  3. In the Flow Name dialog, change the automatically generated flow name to a more meaningful name to help you identify the flow later.
  4. Click OK to confirm the flow name.
  5. After you created a flow, you add and configure blocks that are to be used in the flow.
  6. Connect the blocks and remove unused blocks.

Now, you can invoke the flow by calling the corresponding flow spreadsheet function.
