Example Flows

In the new Examples section, you will find pre-built examples of automations and feature explanations. You are able to copy, paste, or modify any of the information from the example Flows to help build your own Flows. Expect this to be updated often with new examples. 

Learning how to use Hero_Flow has never been easier!

Automatic Outputs

In Hero_Flow's Flow Studio v2, you can now use Automatic Outputs as a convenient way to output data from a Flow into the Tuple Store.

Unlike the rest of Hero_Flow's Outputs, the Automatic Output does not require the user to set up a Connection or the Output before using an Output in a Flow. After the Flow has been run, the output can be located in the Tuple Store.

Automatic Outputs containing Tuple Store schemas can be imported and exported using Hero_Flow's backup manager functionality.

New Functions

Image to PDF

Use the function Image to PDF to generate a PDF from a JPG, JPEG, TIF, TIFF, GIF, BMP, or PNG image.

Merge PDFs

Use the function Merge PDFs to merge binary and binary[list] data with PDF content resulting in one PDF file.


OCR Handwritten Numbers

The OCR Studio has added the feature to read and record hand written numbers. OCR handwritten text is coming soon!

OCR Snippet Outputs

After adding an OCR function in a Flow, the fields created in the OCR Studio are available to use as an output field in the Output. This type of field is called a snippet.

A snippet is an image (binary data type) of what OCR captures from the fields created in the OCR studio.

Classification AI Model Improved Training

Hero_Flow's Classification wizard has improved the process of training models. Before, the Classification models would work through the entire training dataset a set number of times. Some of the later iterations may not be as reliable as a previous training. Now, after the Classification training has been completed, Hero_Flow selects the best iteration.

Configure Dynamic Field Visibility for Robin Skills

Robin has a field schema editor for automation designers creating Robin Outputs. Each field has editability options including a dynamic option. The dynamic option lets users use one or more logical operators to select the correct editability option.

A new dynamic editability option is now available to hide fields that are unneeded based on previous field values. 

In the example below, when an invoice is marked as a "Retail" invoice, the "Hours" field is not displayed to Robin users as it will never be used.
