1. Pieces
  2. Overview

Each time you add a step to a flow, you choose a piece to represent this step.

There are 3 main types of pieces that you can use as steps, as follows:

Piece TypeDescriptionExample
AppPerforms an action on a 3rd party appSend a Slack message
Flow ControlControls the logic of the next step of the flowLoop through array items
HelperExecutes an advanced operation without writing codeParse a CSV file into an array

You can find all pieces under the Apps, Helpers and Flow Controls sections.

If you are looking for a specific piece and can’t find it, visit our Custom Pieces page to figure out the best way around it.
