Wrike flow examples

Create Wrike tasks for newly created proofs in Ziflow.

Once Ziflow is connected to Wrike, you can seamlessly set up Wrike flows. With this flow example implemented, any newly created proofs in Ziflow will automatically trigger a corresponding flow, effortlessly adding tasks on the Wrike end.

1. Create a new flow and select the needed event trigger. In this case, it will be a New Proof/Version. You can narrow down proofs that will trigger the automation by configuring event settings. In my case, each created proof should trigger the Wrike flow.

2. Add the Create Wrike task Zibot to your flow. Inside the Zibot configuration, select the folder where the task should be automatically added and also specify what should be entered in a task title field and in the task description.

3. Check if adding a new proof in your account will trigger automation.

Update Wrike task status when a proof is Accepted.

1. Create a new flow with Ziflow as an application. The Decision made event trigger should be selected. I've selected the Approved decision on a proof level in configuration. You may use a different configuration that works for your use case.

Post a comment to the Wrike task when a new proof fails.

1. Create a new flow and select the needed event trigger. In this case, it will be a New Proof/Version. You can narrow down proofs that will trigger the automation by configuring event settings. In my case, each failed proof in Ziflow should trigger the Wrike flow.
