Flows Page

The Flows page displays the flows to which you have access and lets you create, review, and manage them.

  • A flow is an object for bringing together and organizing the datasets that you use to generate your results.
  • A dataset is content that has been imported to the product or a reference to it.
    • For more information on creating and managing datasets, see Datasets Page.

You can only see flows to which you have access in your currently selected project.
