Sharing and moving a journey
Share your workflows with other users so that they can simply set up the connections and start using them immediately. Move your integrations across folders through a simple drag and drop gesture.
Sharing creates a replica of a journey that is usable to a user without the need of creating it from the scratch. Sharing serves two advantages:
- 1.Quick delivery of the journey to a customer.
- 2.Saves time as it eliminates the redundant work of creating the same journey in different accounts.
Quickwork generates a web-like URL for each journey which can be sent via any messaging platform to a dedicated person or a group of users. Clicking the link redirects the user/group to the shared journey. They can then import it into their account and start using it. Let's see how to share a journey in detail.
Go to your Quickwork account and select the journey you want to share with a user:

As per the above screenshot, the New message from a Twitter user journey is selected. Then, switch to the Settings tab in the journey configuration manager. You'll get the Sharing section with a note and the Get Link button:

Click the Get Link button. A URL of the journey will appear. The URL expires after an hour and won't allow the user to access the journey:

Click the Copy icon to copy the URL and share it with users on the messaging platform of your choice.
Generating the sharable journey URL is independent of the execution state of a journey. The users can generate the URL even if a journey is in execution or non-execution state.
Upon clicking the sharable journey URL, the user can view the journey. If the user has not logged in, then there's the Login button at the top-right corner of the screen clicking which redirects him to the login page. Upon successful login, the user then gets the Import Journey button. Clicking this button creates a replica of the shared journey. The journey gets saved in the user's account and allows him to edit execute it. Refer to the following image for better understanding:

The imported journey gets saved with Copy as the prefix to the title under the Home folder:

It is mandatory to establish the connection for the apps in the shared journey. However, the input values remain configured and a user can modify them as per the requirements.
An executing/non-executing journey can be moved across folders with a simple drag and drop gesture. Hover over the journey you want to move and take your cursor to the four arrow-spoked asterisk icon
. The finger hand cursor gets changed into a fist cursor. You can then drag the journey and drop it into the folder of your choice. Refer to the following image for a better understanding:
