Understanding the GUI

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

The graphical user interface of Quickwork is very simple to understand the navigational flow. Going through this document will then help you create journeys seamlessly. Let's get started.

The Folders window

As soon as you log in to Quickwork, you will be prompted with one of the following windows.

No folders in your account

The following window will prompt you to start with a journey creation with our easy DIY no-code Quickwork:

One or more folders in your account

In case you have already created one or more folders in your account, you'll be taken to the actual Folders window upon login. You can create more folders by clicking on the + icon highlighted. A folder can have multiple journeys created:

Figure 5: Creating more folders

Currently, there are no journeys in this folder. To create a new journey, either click on the + Create Journey button or Get started by creating a new journey link as highlighted. This will take you to the journey configuration dashboard.

The journey list

Once you have journeys created in your account, their list gets displayed in the Folders window in a 1x1 grid illustration:

Figure 6: A list of journeys

You can see the name of the journey, apps associated with it, success and failure count, and the start-stop toggle button to ON or OFF the execution of a journey. Toggling ON an inactive falsely configured journey will throw an error:

You can view the errors by clicking on the View Error button on the journey board:

The journey configuration manager

Clicking on the + Create Journey button or Get started by creating a new journey link on the Folders window will take you to the journey configuration manager of that folder. See the following image:

Figure 9: The journey configuration manager

Quickwork is developed in a vertical approach i.e., clicking and entering the details in one field opens the next set of fields for specifying further information. Let us understand the components highlighted in Figure 9: The journey configuration manager:

  1. Folders: The journey configuration manager opens under the Folders tab. Quickwork obeys a directory hierarchy where a journey is considered as a file that gets created within a folder.

  2. Docs: Clicking this tab will land you here i.e. to the documentation guide of Quickwork in the new tab. You can visit the same by visiting https://docs/quickwork.co.

  3. Tools: This menu holds advanced features and properties such as API Management, Database, Constants, Team, and Conversation Management.

  4. Subscribe: Clicking this button will take you to the pricing page of Quickwork. The subscription plans are bifurcated into a monthly and annual basis supporting currency rates in INR and USD. From the Free, Starter, and Pro plan to the Business and Enterprise plan, Quickwork covers all the feature benefits that customers could use as per their business requirements.

  5. User account: This menu contains two options, Account Settings and Sign out. In the Account Settings window, you can update your profile information, check the transaction credits, raise a request to export or delete the account and see the ongoing subscription plan of your account. When you are added to a team, you can simply switch between the administrator's workspace and your own through this menu.

  6. Back to Folders: This button shows the name of the folder in which you are creating a journey, which is Demo, as shown in the image. Clicking the button will return you to the folder dashboard.

  7. Name of the journey: The name of the journey you have created e.g., New Journey. Click on the edit button and rename the journey of your choice. The journey gets displayed with the specified name under the Folders tab. If you do not give a new to the journey, Quickwork uses a templatized description to name a journey upon saving its changes. It uses the app names configured in a trigger and actions as the title of the journey. E.g., Triggers a newly scheduled event via Scheduler by Quickwork will Send a new message via WhatsApp by Gupshup.

  8. Delete button, Refresh button, Clone button, and Save Changes button: Clicking these buttons will delete the journey, refresh all the fields of a journey, clone it precisely, and save the changes of a journey with all the data configured. Note: A journey in its execution state can be cloned from the journey configuration manager but not from the Folders window.

  9. Save & Start: Clicking the Save & Start button will test your journey to detect errors if any, and then starts the journey execution. Upon clicking this, you'll be redirected automatically to the History tab. You cannot make any changes when a journey is executing. Stop its execution to do any alterations.

  10. Journey menu: This block contains 5 tabs that are useful to know what data your journey has fetched during execution. You can also view the configuration information and version history of the journey. Click here to learn more about these tabs.

Now that you have understood the navigational flow of Quickwork, let's try connecting some apps and create the first journey.
