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

Have you already got lost in your organization home page having trouble finding the process you want to access? Or just got annoyed that the home page is not organized enough? 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 :)
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
Product Hacks: QR Code and Public Form IntegrationProduct Hacks
QR code (or Quick Response code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode). A barcode is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached. In other words, it's a link that your smartphone camera can read. Pipefy's start form can generate a public link that allows anyone to create a request from outside our software. This link can be easily configured as a QR code. Ok, and so what? The QR code can be an easy way to fill a reimbursement form, travel/facilities, or any HR request directly from your mobile. Here is a quick guide on how to configure that: : 1- Create a Pipefy start form 2- Turn this into a public form by clicking on the button “Share” on the right side of the form (image below) 3- After that , enable the public form button, generate a public link and copy it. 4- After copying the link, you need to go to a free or paid QR Code generator website. You can eas

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
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
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!
Pipefy provides the nice option to have E-Mail templates in HTML. This way, you can add tables, images, and pretty much all the styling and formatting you can dream of (provided there is support in the E-Mail program). What I am not quite happy about is the editor they provide. The windows size is limited. There is not code highlighting. No syntax highlighting. The lack of syntax highlighting and code formatting means, that it is too easy to miss a closing tag too many or not enough. All in all, it is just not suited for actual coding. That is why I wrote a custom CLI application, which uses Pipefy’s GraphQL API to fetch the E-Mails I want to edit, open them in my favourite editor (e.g. Visual Studio Code), and submit them back to Pipefy once I finished editing.I published this tool open-source, so you can use it too: https://github.com/GenieTim/PipefyEnhancer The usage steps are the following:1. Install NodeJS 2. Run the command (in your favourite terminal/command line/whatever it is
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

Product Hacks: Hide PipesProduct Hacks
Have you ever asked yourself if it’s possible to hide a pipe so other members wouldn’t be able to see that it even exists? Well, that’s possible. Here is a step-by-step on how to hide your pipes: 1- Choose a pipe that you would like to hide 2- Access on it and open the pipe settings 3- Scroll down to “Permissions” and select the option private pipe and save it. 4- Click on create a new card , click on the three dots on the top right corner of the form module and go to “Edit the start form” 5- Scroll all the way down and uncheck the box “Allow all team members to create cards on this pipe” That’s it! Now your process is hidden and no one besides invited members and organization admins can see it. Important: having in mind that the process is now private and hidden, you will need to invite members to join the pipe otherwise they will not be able to found it. I hope you like it!
Olá, Pessoal!Segue uma dica, caso encontrem esse erro no Make. A dica abaixo pode ser uma das soluções.Recentemente tive um problema na integração do Make com o Pipefy. Quando eu tentava salvar uma configuração de um novo cenário inserindo uma conexão já existente no Make, eu recebia uma mensagem de erro informando que a permissão foi negada. Error 30001 Permission Denied.[Painel Make] Depois de muita luta, consegui identificar a causa. A conta de usuário do Pipefy que eu estava usando na conexão com o Make, estava com a função de membro dentro do Pipe. Então, alterei para função de Administrador dentro do Pipe, o erro 30001 sumiu no Make e a integração voltou a funcionar. [Painel Pipefy] Mas o engraçado é que não sei como a função do usuário mudou de Admin para Membro. Essa parte estou verificando com a equipe de suporte do Pipefy.
In Integromat, configure the trigger that will trigger the automation. Some examples:- Card creation;- Phase change;- Field Update;- Scheduled triggers (time, day of the week)- Card expired, expired or delayed. In the second step, use the Update a Card Field module. Select the field you want to update with the calculation and configure the filling using the standard Integromat operators. In addition to the main mathematical operators, Integromat allows other types of transformation / substritution. It is worth checking!

How automations help keep a creative agency’s recurring projects on track. Now that I’ve gone in-depth on how Pipefy Helps Our Ad Agency Field 100+ Requests Monthly, I thought I would share a simple hack in our workflow that you can apply to any project management pipeline. For us, we know that every week we have to produce 6 newspaper ads. As such, we have created simple automations to create cards at a certain time every Monday at 8AM. The great thing about this process is that it allows us to include pre-populated information in the card that saves time. We can automatically include all the information needed to complete the project, rather than having to manually create a card each week.A preview of our simple card creation automations that keep us on track! Here’s how it works, on your left-hand menu, press “Automations” --- > “Create a New automation”. Here is a preview of what our automations look like. Learn more about automations at this link. What are some ways that yo
Managing Marketing projects and processes is already a challenge. Doing this remotely naturally increases the level of difficulty. But what if I told you it doesn't have to be that hard? Yeah. With Pipefy, this can be a much simpler task than you think! Follow me: Great marketing has robust projects Here at Pipefy, we get involved in several projects and some of them are even managed by non-team leaders, which is great for the career. In my case, I am responsible for the Portuguese content efforts. Which means, lots of translations, new blog posts and pages of our website. However, this is not my only role in the company. I also produce content of the same nature in English and I am currently involved in four other projects. Yes, it is a lot to manage, but I am not alone in this journey. My tiger team of Portuguese content consists of four more people, and three of them were even hired during the quarantine. My mission: manage Pipefy’s translations and new content
🤔Did you know that in Pipefy you can use Regex in Short Text fields? RegEx, an acronym for Regular Expressions, is a type of programming used to match certain patterns, restricting or enabling certain user actions based on what is typed. Using Regex, only the characters you define (and in the format you choose) can be inserted into the field.😀For more details, check out this article from our Help Center!
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,Recently I had to send a customer the answers filled in the fields on a card.Because it is a one-off case, it was not necessary to create a PDF using the PDF Generator. Likewise, the amount of information would not fit on a print screem. I decided to use my browser's printing tool to generate the document. It's very simple:Just right-click on the card, then print and select the PDF print mode. The tip for all information to be printed is to expand all previous phases and long text fields
Customers usually ask us “how can I use automation to update my field with an empty value?” After a few tests, I found a way to do it using automation. This workaround is recommended if your company is on the Business or Enterprise plan (we are going to need automation and a field conditional to enable this workaround). Ps: If you are not in on one of these plans and want to upgrade your account, you can contact the support team in our chat or your CSM, if you have one. ;) 1. First of all, you need to choose what type of field you want to update. We need to create a new field of the exact same type as the field we want to update. So, let's pretend we are interested in updating a field type Date. I already have a Date field in my process, but I also created a new one called “Date - hide”. (I even named it that way to make it very clear that that is the field I want to hide, therefore it will not be visible in my process). This field will always be empty and it will be the one to be u
Create recurring activitiesproduct hacks
Expected results: Save time by automatically creating recurring activities and making sure your team follows their routine. What is this useful for? Automatically creating cards for recurring daily/weekly or monthly activities (such as accounts payable, extracting reports, team meetings, etc.) . Before you get started you'll need to: Specify which task you wish to automatically create in your team's task management pipe. In our case we want a card to be created every Monday 9 a.m. to remind the team to extract all necessary reports before the team meeting on Wednesday. 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 'Recurring activity'.
