My apps page
My apps page lists the apps that you are an admin of and the apps that you are added as a runner. On this page, you can manage your apps and add new apps to your workspace or clone from existing ones.
Description tab contains information about your app's properties. App admins can update properties such as the name, description or media links.
- Name: Name of your tool or process can be the name of your app. Name is also used to identify which app your workflows belong to when you want to run a workflow in Slack through
/actionershortcut. Name is visible on your workflows list.
Icon: Icon of your app can be the logo of your tool or an image representing how your app works.
Description: It provides a summary of your app and its features.
Media: In this section, you can find useful links, including images and Youtube videos demonstrating how your app works. You can add the links to pages explaining related use-cases in Use cases section and links to documentations that show how to use your app in Learn more section.
Managed app: If you installed an app from app directory that is managed by Actioner, you'll see the version you installed in this section. You can update your app to the latest version or you can Unlock your app to edit your workflows. By unlocking your app, you will no longer receive updates for its new versions.

Creating a new app
To create a new app, go to My apps page from left menu and click + Add new app and proceed with your preferred option.
Cloning an app
Cloning an app creates its copy in your stack and lets you customize your own version of workflows on the cloned one.
To clone an app, navigate to its Description tab, click ellipsis … at top right corner and select Clone.
When an app is cloned, a new app is created with the same properties, workflow, job and data table configurations.
When you clone an app;
- You become the only user on the cloned version. You can add users to your app on Permissions tab.
- Cloned app has no relations with the app it is cloned from. Changes in either of these do not impact each other.
All users added to an app can run its workflows. However, only the app admins can update its properties, workflows, jobs and data tables. You can see the list of app admins on Description tab or on Permissions tab.
Updating your app
App admins can update the app's properties, workflows and configurations.
To update your app's name, description, icon, media or links, go to Description tab.

Deleting an app
Deletion of an app can only be performed by app admins. When an app is deleted, its workflows, data tables and jobs are removed from your workspace. Deletion of an app is irreversible.
