Outputs overview

Learn how to produce visual tables, charts and informational text for your workflows.

Outputs are the results of workflows. A form-triggered workflow takes inputs, executes actions, and generates outputs accordingly.

Outputs can be in various visual forms, such as tables, charts, and informational text. A report of your customer list or a chart showing weekly sales volume are some outputs that can be generated with Actioner. You can take follow-up workflows on your outputs, interact with charts, download and share them.

By running a workflow, you can create a table report that lists your companies and their activities or you can get a pie chart showing the count of your tickets distributed by priority.

Your workflow may have multiple charts and tables or one that shows the result of your action. If multiple outputs are setup for your action, all of them are produced once you run the action. In Slack, switch to another output by selecting it from dropdown. On workflow bar, click on each output tab to view other outputs.


Outputs are only produced when a workflow is triggered manually through a form.

To view and update the outputs of a workflow, open your workflow in Canvas mode and navigate to steps with Outputs type.
