Keep up with the latest updates we’ve made in Workato.


New App Management Experience for Workflow Apps

We have made our Workflow Apps so much easier to create from scratch and manage with the new App view! Everything related to a workflow app now resides in a single project tab: stages of a workflow process, related app pages, data layer for the app, and automation recipes with business logic.

The updates include:

  • New App View that is available for all your existing and future app-based projects
  • Configurable tabs to show additional information for the app or design alternative request pages
  • Selection of a page became optional in Workflow Apps connector actions since pages are now directly assigned to specific workflow stages

New Customization Features for Workflow Apps

Our Workflow Apps just got more customizable with a number of new enhancements including:

Markup support - Customize text components with multi-line rich text created with simple markup syntax.

Embedding settings - Control where and how the apps portal can be embedded into other applications.

Worfklow Apps Connector - The workflow apps connector has been updated to support dynamically selecting group ID, allowing users to share the same task logic between groups.

Column customization - Control which data table columns are shown to which users, ensuring users are only presented with relevant information.


Wait for a user to act on Slack

Our Workbot for Slack connector now allows you to wait for a user to act on Slack before continuing your recipe. This means you no longer have to build multiple recipes, saving time and effort.


Delete messages on Microsoft Teams

We've introduced a new delete message action to our Workbot for Microsoft Teams connector. Use it to make your users' Microsoft Teams experience more dynamic.

Workbot for Slack: Waiting for user input in Slack Modal Dialogs

Users can now handle user input of Slack Modal Dialogs in the same recipe.

How it works
The Workbot recipe job will suspend until the user provides input and closes the modal. The job continues to the next action when it receives the input; it does not run a separate command as a distinct recipe trigger.

What this means for users
This enables users to specify multiple steps of Workbot-user interaction in one recipe, streamlining logic, reducing the number of recipes, and avoiding artificial and unnecessary bot commands.
