3 Features Every Workflow Automation Tool Must Have

Nov 15, 2017 | 2 minutes
Two colleagues exploring a new workflow automation tool.

Is your current workflow automation platform limiting your possibilities? Are you tired of paying more for must-have features? Are you having issues regarding the following:

  • Only being able to use data from after the point of integration

  • A limited number of steps allowed in an automation sequence

  • Lack of knowledge of a programming language

Integrating services should be easy, be accessible for all, and limitless. 

The bottom line is, you should be able to easily link as many services as you want together and with the data you need. 

I am here to tell you that with Make you can! This means that you do not need to have any knowledge of a programming language and ALL users have access to ALL of our features. 

3 of these top features we offer: choosing where to start your scenario, an unlimited number of steps, and the ability to visualize everything you do.

3 Must-have features

1. Choose where to start

Our competitors limit the point from which you can grab data from. They offer only the possibility to grab data from the point after your first integration. 

Make allows you to easily choose where to start

So, you have the choice of whether you want to read data from the moment you start the scenario or from a certain point in the past.

Choose where to start panel

With options like, From now on, From after a specific date, All, or select the first, you have complete control over what data will be used. So, a little late to the automation game — no worries we can still automate your work from the past.

2. Unlimited steps

Some of our competitors offer the ability to build multi-step integrations, but for an additional fee. Why pay more for the service you actually need? 

With Make, your scenarios may contain as many or as little steps as you need.

Multi-split scenario

Users at all levels have access to this feature. To learn how we make this feature possible, visit our Pricing page.

3. Visualize everything you do

Another element that is available to all users is our real-time execution

Users have the ability to track in real-time their scenario execution and completely visualize how their data flows through the scenario. Immediately after the run of the scenario, you can see the information about your processed bundles. 

On top of that, it will be housed in your scenario execution history.

Visualize everything you do

We offer several other cutting-edge features that allow you to create as simple or as robust scenarios that you need. To have a look at all of our features, visit our Features page.
