Well, Pipefy can be organized following the logical rules of priority below: 1- My Pipes: processes that you are part of will always appear on the top part of your screen. “Other Pipes” will appear below on a separate section. 2- Favorite Pipes: categorized with a yellow star in the top left corner will always be shown at first. 3- Processes can be organized by adding numbers in front of its name: Example: 4- Last but not least, Pipefy will be organized following an alphabetical order. I hope that was useful :)

We’re always looking for improvement opportunities, and lately, we’ve been focusing on deliveries that will help doers achieve more with less.Here are our top 5 small deliveries that can make a big impact on your daily efficiency: You can now select/unselect all items at once on a checklist. Enjoy this new capability with any form or phase with this type of field! Now, you can filter expired and overdue cards and add them as columns to your reports: “expired at” shows the date the card became expired, and “overdue” shows YES/NO to inform if the card is overdue. You can quickly update the phase description directly in the kanban view and make it more intuitive for those using the pipe for the first time. Avoid duplicated cards by setting up fields with a unique value. It works for both pipes and databases. Improve how remote employees exchange information with the company using Pipefy’s mobile version. The app is available for both Android and iOS. Do you have more Pipefy tricks t

Start sub-process automaticallyproduct hacks
Expected results: Boost your team's efficiency by enabling them to work simultaneously on complex tasks. What is this useful for? Making your process more dynamic by automatically distributing tasks to other teams in subprocesses. Before you get started you'll need to: Create a connection between your main process and each of the subprocesses; If needed, specify which fields you'll use as conditions for creating tasks in the subprocesses. In our case, we'll use a checkbox field where we'll select which subtasks need to be created. How to: Access the automation menu by clicking on the automation option in the sidebar (in the left side of the screen). Click on 'Add new automation'. Our event will be 'When a card is created' in pipe Project Management. We'll add the condition that our automation should only be triggered when 'project specification' is selected in our subtasks field. Our action is 'Create a new connected card' in pipe Project sp
I am just new in pipefy and I am trying to build a process for Determining Winners from a competition. Is there a way to ingrate a ‘Search Function’ within a form? If a contestant won, I want to have a ‘search function’ so we can just search the name from the database and mark that contestant as winner. Please help.
I already mentioned in “How to edit your HTML email templates in your favourite HTML Editor” that the tool i wrote, https://github.com/GenieTim/PipefyEnhancer, provides a few different abstractions and added functionality on Pipefy using their GraphQL API. In this post, I will explain one more of the commands it provides: adding a field to multiple phases at once. Why would I want to do that? The scenario, why I wrote this command, is, that my client wanted a way to organise the attachments on their pipe. They wanted fields, such as “External Analysis” or “External Invoice”, where they can attach documents. They want to be able to attach these documents at every step in a process, meaning in every phase, while also knowing at which phase they entered the document. The last condition is it, that prohibits a single field in the first phase, that could be edited later in other phases using the left hand side, history, of the card. Please support my idea “Sort Attachments” to reduce the ne

Hello everyone! Bom dia! I’ve been using Pipefy for a year now. It’s been amazing to see the tool grow and improve, continuing to get better and better. I’ve learned a lot over the last year and I bet you all have too in the time you’ve been using Pipefy. My question for you is: what’s something you’ve learned to do in Pipefy (a feature or trick) that you didn’t know when you first started using the tool? Something awesome that others might not be aware of. I’ll go first: I recently learned that you can sort the cards in any phase by clicking on the … of that phase in the Kanban view and choosing “Sort phase’s cards”. It’s very helpful! What are your favourite features that others might have missed?Sarah

Jump from one pipe to anotherProduct Hacks
Do you have the pain that every time you need to change pipes, you need to go to the home page, search for a pipe and then access it? There’s a much easier way to “jump” between pipes. For that, you only need to the Pipe’s ID number! To find a Pipe ID number is pretty easy, you just need to access the pipe and tha last numerical digits at your internet browser URL. For example: if you are working one Pipe and want to jump to another one, you just need to change the ID number in the URL. In the example below, I switch between the purchase process and help desk process. Important: Make sure you save all your work before leaving from one pipe to another! The same logic also applies to cards, Databases, automation rules and so on. Don’t forget to like this article if it was helpful! 👍
Hello! My name is Thiago and I work as Product Designer at Pipefy. I'm very glad to share with you a new plugin for WordPress I've been designing and developing in the last month. There's a lot of WordPress users around there. And a lot of them use contact forms every day. And probably they're struggling out with email settings, SMTP, and all these hard stuff to get their contact forms working. We all know the Public Forms inside Pipefy are awesome. Inside Pipefy you can structure your workflow and then make the start form public for everyone by generating a link. This form is the pipe’s front door. Its fields ask for all the information people must provide before creating a new card. This card can be one lead, an email, a customer question... basically anything. So I had the idea of creating a simple but powerful way to launch this form in all WordPress pages. By installing the plugin you can integrate your website with Pipefy and enable customers to communicate with your team dire

Hi Everyone,I’m sharing with you a video explaining how we usually manage files in Pipefy to send using email templates.Some use cases for this are in the Recruitment process or Employee onboarding where there’s a need to share standard files to all applicants or new employees using Pipefy’s email templates.https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYeqIix9KM
While there are two ideas asking for a clear way on how to manage labels via automations, https://community.pipefy.com/ideas/create-labels-when-updating-a-field-1111 and https://community.pipefy.com/ideas/automation-to-change-label-909, there is actually a way to do so already. The trick is to use a field with type “label” and use an automation to update that field.Example according to @thaiannelourenco in https://community.pipefy.com/ideas/create-labels-when-updating-a-field-1111:Let’s add a label when a field has a certain value.Let’s start with adding the labels field:Notice the “Synchronize card's field with this fixed field”. That’s how the labels will end up on the card.Feel free to additionally add a field conditional to hide the field in order to use it only in automations. Then, we can add the automation: as a trigger, we use “When a field is updated”. Select the pipe and the field you want the trigger to be based on. Add conditionals if you want the label to be only added whe
Hey everyone, I’m here today to share a quick and useful hack for processes that have mandatory checklists and you need to make sure that all the boxes are checked before moving the card on to the next phase. When you make a checklist field mandatory Pipefy will consider it filled even when just a box has been checked. If you need all boxes to be checked, check out my video and let me know if this hack helps in the comments below! I’m also super available if you have any feedback about the format of the content, suggestions for other hacks as well. Have a good one!
