Cloning and commenting

Understanding the Quickwork Journey Builder. Quickwork is a no-code, API-based SaaS platform with pre-integrated apps to automate business and consumer workflows.

Quickwork Journey Builder allows manipulation operations of each element that a journey has. You can clone the exact copy of a journey, comment at each step of the journey and delete the unnecessary elements of a journey as per your needs. Let's drill down this document and understand it in a better way.

Cloning a journey

Cloning a journey gives you an exact copy of the parent journey including, a trigger, action(s), conditions, formulas, input data, and data pills passed from the Data Tree Output. The only thing to deal with a cloned journey is to re-establish the connections of a trigger and actions. You can connect through existing connections or create a new one:

Cloning of a journey is possible from the Folders window and Journey window.

Cloning a journey from the Folders window

Select the folder of which journey(s) you want to clone. Then, click the horizontal ellipsis at the right corner of the journey section and click the Clone option. A replica of the journey will be created with Copy as a prefix to the journey name:

Go to the journey you want to clone and click the clone icon beside the journey name. You'll be redirected to the cloned journey window, where you can start working with triggers and actions. Refer to the following image:

Cloning an action step

Cloning an action step will give you a replica of the original action with defined input fields, mentioned data pills, established connection, and scripted formulas. Cloning applies to simple actions, conditional blocks, and try-catch block.

To clone, click on the horizontal ellipsis and click the Clone option. A copy of the action will be created:

A trigger cannot be cloned because a journey can have only one trigger to configure.

Deleting a journey

Unlike cloning, deleting a journey is possible from the Folders and Journey window. Deleting a journey will result in a permanent loss of configured data from your account.

Deleting a journey from the Folders window

Navigate to the folder in which you want to delete a journey. Then, click the horizontal ellipsis at the right corner of the journey section and click the Delete option. A confirmation tab will pop-up to delete the journey permanently:

However, a journey in an active state cannot be deleted. Its execution needs to be stopped in order to delete it from the folder. Quickwork Journey Builder will not allow you to delete an executing journey. Refer to the following image:

Deleting a journey from the journey configuration window

Go to the journey you want to delete and click the delete icon beside the journey name. A confirmation window will pop-up asking you to delete the journey. When you click the Delete button, the journey will be permanently deleted, and you'll be taken back to the Folders window:

Deleting an action step

From the horizontal ellipsis drop-down, click the Delete option. Upon confirming, the action will be deleted. Deleting an action might hamper the execution of a journey. So, ensure the configuration of a journey is flawless before executing it:

A trigger cannot be deleted as it is the starting point of journey execution.

Adding and deleting a comment

Commenting helps you associate short keynotes, hints, labels, priority-levels, etc, to a trigger or action(s) of a journey. This feature is most helpful for long journeys where IF...Else block, Try-Catch blocks, and actions configured within are complex to understand. In such cases, referring to the comments give immediate mind clicks about the working of each action block configured.

Click on the horizontal ellipsis at the right corner of the trigger/action bar and click the Add comment option:

Then, type the text you want to add as a comment and hit the Enter key. The comment will appear below the trigger/action statement in italics:
