Gain a basic understanding of Workflow’s key concepts.


At the heart of Workflow are tasks. These are the basic building blocks that everything in Workflow revolves around. Every task requires a title and a status, but you can also add properties like priority, labels, due date, and assignee to keep things organized. Plus, you can attach creative assets directly to tasks for seamless collaboration and feedback.

Press C to create tasks from anywhere in the app.


Adding Creative Assets to a Task

Workflow makes it easy to share creative assets by attaching them directly to tasks. With support for 30+ file types, including images, PDFs, videos, live sites, and Figma files, your team can view and comment on creative work right within a task. This simplifies the feedback process, allowing you to reply to comments and resolve them once addressed, keeping everyone on the same page.

Workflow also supports video comments. Record short screen recordings to clearly and efficiently share your thoughts. Learn more.

When you’re ready for another round of feedback, simply upload a new version of the creative asset and notify your team. Workflow keeps past versions and their associated comments easily accessible, providing a clear record of iterations and feedback.

If you use Figma, we highly recommend installing the Figma plugin to add specific frames to Workflow without leaving Figma.

Board View

To get a visual overview of all your tasks and their corresponding stages, use the board view. From there, you can easily filter and search to find specific tasks.


Organizing Tasks in Projects

Projects group tasks together towards a specific, well-defined deliverable. Each project has its own dedicated page displaying all tasks related to the project.


To create a project, go to the Projects tab and click “Create project,” or use the shortcut Cmd + P on Mac (Ctrl + P on Windows) from anywhere in the app.

Collaborators and Guests

Only team members and guests who have been added to a project can view and edit it.

  • Team members can join any public project they’d like.
  • External guests, such as freelancers or clients, can be added to specific projects. Guests will only have access to the project they’ve been invited to.



The Inbox is your notification center for important action items. It provides a single place to check and prioritize your to-dos. Mark items as “done” to dismiss them and automatically view the next pending item, streamlining your workflow.

Taking Actions

Anytime you do something in Workflow that changes a task, project, or another piece of data, you’re taking an action. Workflow offers multiple ways to take actions:

  • Using the command bar: Access the command bar with Cmd + K (or Ctrl + K) and search for relevant actions based on what you have open or selected.
  • Using keyboard shortcuts: Keyboard shortcuts are the fastest way to use Workflow. Try learning the most common ones:
    • C to create a task
    • Cmd + K (or Ctrl + K) to open the command menu
  • Using the mouse: Of course, you can always use your mouse to interact with the interface.
