When the complexity of business processes increases, operating in terms of a collection of disjointed workflows is often not enough. You may need to link up different workflows with each other. In this post, we discuss how you can call workflows from other workflows using Integrations and Pneumatic’s public API.
Link Up Workflows through Zapier
While Pneumatic currently does not support connected workflows, you can set up integrations between workflows via Zapier. Zapier is a third-party tool that allows you to connect different apps and services, including Pneumatic, so that one app can respond to events in another. By setting up an integration in Zapier, you can trigger a workflow in Pneumatic when another workflow is completed or when a specific task gets completed or returned in another workflow.
There are four types of Pneumatic events available in Zapier:
- Workflow Started
- Workflow Completed
- Task Completed
- Task Returned
This means that you can set up integrations to launch a new workflow in Pneumatic when another workflow is completed or when a specific task gets completed/returned in another workflow. This way, you can have a new workflow triggered in Pneumatic when another workflow is completed or when a task is completed or returned in another workflow.
Using Pneumatic’s Public API
Another way to call workflows from other workflows is by using Pneumatic’s public API. The free public API allows you to access and control Pneumatic workflows programmatically. This way, you can build highly customized integrations and automations that are tailored to your specific needs.
For example, you could deploy a lambda function that listens to a specific event in Pneumatic, such as a workflow or task completion, and launches a new workflow whenever that event happens. This can help you create more customized and flexible workflow integrations that meet your specific requirements.
While Pneumatic does not offer direct support for connected workflows, it can be easily implemented by deploying integrations either in Zapier or using Pneumatic’s free public API. Integrations can be set up to launch a new workflow in Pneumatic whenever another workflow is completed or whenever a task is completed or returned. By leveraging these powerful tools, you can take your workflow automation to the next level to save time, reduce errors and increase productivity.
