Create Playbooks in Easy Mode

📘

Note

Flows are now called playbooks and nodes are called steps in Easy Mode.

To view or work with playbooks, you must be in a group that has Playbook permission. For more information, see Manage Users.

Easy Mode allows you to create playbooks easily by selecting automation for steps without directly entering LQL code. A wide range of automation is available, and for many customers, it’s possible to create most or all needed playbooks using Easy Mode. When you open a playbook, Easy Mode opens by default.

LogicHub still supports the original LogicHub flow builder, which is now called Advanced Mode and is accessible from the More (...) menu on the Playbooks page. For more information on using Advanced Mode, see Create a Playbook in Advanced Mode.

Create a Playbook in Easy Mode

  1. Click New Playbook from the left navigation or go to My Library and click on Playbooks.
  • Clicking on New Playbook gives you an option to click on a New Blank Playbook or choose from a template.
  • Clicking on My Library > Playbooks gives you an option to click New on the upper-right corner or open an existing Playbook from the list of Playbooks.

Information

By default, playbooks open in Easy Mode. To change the default mode, see Set Default Playbook Editor.

You can start a new playbook from a blank template or a template with content. The difference is that a blank template doesn’t have any defined steps, whereas a template with content has one or more predefined steps that you can edit and add to.

  1. Click New Blank Playbook. The Playbook opens up in Easy Mode and the trigger steps appear with the options to choose from.

  2. Use the date/time controls at the top to set a date/time range for the playbook data. If you change the date when viewing data, the data you’re viewing updates automatically. By default, it will be 15 minutes.

  3. Hover over the name at the upper left of the screen and click on the untitled playbook, enter the new name and press return or click the checkbox.

You can now create steps for the playbook.

  1. Click automation to select it. Search and select any node that you want to add.

  2. LogicHub now prompts you for the information that is needed to use the automation. For example, for the IMAP - Read Emails automation, you would select the connection for the IMAP integration.
