There are two type of interactions:
Frontend interactions: they happen on the interface
Backend interactions: they happen on the server (e.g. create a new record in the database)
Each workflow is triggered by an event, for example:
when the end user clicks on a button
when the user logs in to the app
A workflow is composed of a list of actions that are sequentially triggered (e.g. create a new product in the database, then send an email to someone...).
Each node in the workflow can be configured by double-clicking on it. For each property, you can either choose a STATIC value (a value that doesn't depend on a variable or the output of a previous node) or a DYNAMIC value using the Data Mapping Tool that enables to easily bind to data from a specific node or variable.
