New updates and improvements to Flows.

New branding

To better reflect our mission and values, we've updated our branding. We wanted to reflect that Flows is a tool for builders to create anything they can imagine. We are excited to share this new look with you!

Flows new brand

SDK 0.1

We weren't only polishing the pixels. Our SDK is now mature enough to call it 0.1. We've worked out the main concepts and APIs, and we are ready to start building on top of it. We are excited to see what you will create with it!

Other improvements

  • Added preview control panel that allows you to restart or close the preview.
  • When in preview mode, only the selected flow will be loaded.
  • Added option to disable the click layer in Tooltip and Modal. This allows users to interact with the page even when using overlay.
  • Added option to set individual z-index for Tooltip and Modal to avoid conflicts with other elements.

Wait for element to be on page

Now you can wait for an element to be on the page before starting a flow. This is good for cases where you need to wait for a page to load or to avoid starting flows on empty states.

Organization usage improvements

We've added a few improvements to help you keep track of your organization usage:

  • When your organization reaches 80% of the usage limit, we'll email you.
  • When your organization reaches the limit, we'll email you and log error messages in the console and localhost.

Flows improvements

Now you can set the flow frequency to every session. This means that the flow will start every time the user opens the app, for example. Along with this, we've also improved the session handling in the SDK.

Other improvements

  • Allow null origin in projects so you can use Flows places that don't have an origin like Figma plugins
  • Expired organization invites are now shown with the option to resend them
  • Improved join organization flow
  • Improved unlink account dialog

Documenting everything

Great apps can't exist without documentation. After releasing a lot of changes in the last few weeks, we've had to pay the documentation debt. We rewrote most pages and added a lot of new ones. Check all the changes in our docs.

Other improvements

  • When editing template styles, you can now see both tooltip and modal next to each other

Improving the flow editor

The flow editor should be now more user friendly and easier to use. We've added autosave, option to remove draft version, and improved the layout.

Better start options

You can now specify more options when starting a flow. Apart from location and clicking on an element, you can now wait for input to change or a form to be submitted.

Other improvements

  • Project and organization switcher is now easier to use
  • Billing limit now calculates expected usage
  • localhost and are now auto enabled in all projects to simplify testing
  • Localhost events are not included in analytics and billing

Introducing pricing

Starting today, we are introducing pricing for Flows. Our pricing is simple and flexible. We want to make sure that Flows is accessible to everyone, no matter the size of your business.

That's why we are offering a generous free tier, so you can try Flows without any commitment. If you need more, we have a pay-as-you-go model that scales with your product starting at $0.009 per started flow. See our pricing page for more details.

Why price based on usage?

Its simple: charging a fixed fee or by Monthly Active Users (MAUs) results in unfair pricing for everyone. You may have a lot of users, but only a few of them need onboarding, or you may have a few users, but they need to be onboarded frequently. From value perspective, you shouldn't pay the same amount in both of these cases.

Beta Launch 🚀

Today is the day... We're finally launching our Beta for Flows! This has been in the works for the past 6 months, and we appreciate all the support and feedback you've provided while we've been building. ❤️

The beta is open to anyone, so go ahead and sign up!

We need feedback! Please ping us in the app and let us know what you liked and what we could improve.

Again, thanks for being part of this journey. It really means the world to us to have you onboard.

Road to beta week 5

Demo examples - showcasing how to implement Flows in NextJS or JavaScript - to see how seamlessly it can integrate into your projects! ➡️ See the demo

First deployment at Atmos - we have first production deploy on our sister product Atmos, guiding users to create better color palettes for UI. Soon you will be able to join the ranks! ⏱️

Road to beta week 4

Getting started - a two step guide that will show you how to implement Flows into your app and start onboarding people in no time.

Darkmode support 🌚 - our default theme now supports theming out of the box. With that we've also rewritten most of the CSS to make it easier to match your brand.

Database backup and improved security - keeping your data safe and sound

Various other improvements to polish up Flows before the Beta.

Road to beta week 3

Welcome screen - helps you setup your account after signing up.

First versions of documentation - Flows are easy to use, but if you ever get stuck Docs got your back. Still need help? Reach out directly to us anytime.

New homepage and features page - Flows website underwent its first visual upgrade. And it is simply beautiful. See here 👉

Road to beta week 2

Tooltip overlay - Draw attention to a specific element by highlighting it with an overlay.

Flow error tracking - see where flows fail and fix them. Error events show you where exactly the flow failed and on which element.

Async load from Cloud - to speed up the initialization even more, Flows now load only the first step of each flow. The other steps are loaded only when the flow starts.

SDK TSDoc - we didn’t forget about our developer friends. Now our SDK is fully documented, with comments and examples so you don’t need to check our docs for the basic stuff.

CSS versioning - to prevent breaking changes Flows Cloud now delivers the right version of CSS styles based on the SDK version in your codebase.

Road to beta week 1

Style customization from Flows Cloud - allowing you to change the look and feel of your flows without the need to hard-code the styles into your app.

Login & Signup page - we are preparing the doors for the big day. You’ll love it once you see it.

SDK E2E testing - reliability is important to us. To ensure flows show up 100% of the time we’ve built up a begining of our test suite comprising of 156 tests covering how our flows render in various cases in all the browsers. Powered by Playwright.

SQL query optimization - flows need to be FAST ⚡️ that’s why we’ve gone back and cleaned up our backend queries to shave off 100ms on average bringing us down to 40-60ms.

Hello World 👋

We are starting on the journey of creating Flows - the next generation tool for creating onboarding flows and product tours. Read about our mission and the principles we use to build Flows in our first blog post.
