Loop back to earlier stages in your flows

Many of you have been asking for a way to visualize when something needs to be repeated in your process. Today, we're releasing the feature loop.

Sometimes parts of a flow needs to be repeated to get the outcome you're looking for. You need to re-send an email to a customer. An employee needs to retrain a skill. To visualize the real world even better, we've now developed a highly anticipated feature we call loop.

With loop, you can go back and repeat given stages of your flow, where that's what's happening in the real world. Instead of ending your path, you can loop the process back to a given split, step, or reference.

Many of you have wanted this new feature – we hope it will make your digital process modeling and mapping more effortless and closer to reality.
