Welcome to the July edition of Orkes Monthly Highlights.

Let’s dive deeper into exciting product & event updates from July 2023 and get a sneak peek of what we have in store for August 2023.

What’s new in Orkes Conductor?

Create Workflow Schedules from Completed Executions

With the latest Orkes Conductor version, you can instantly create a workflow schedule from completed executions. You only need to provide a name for the scheduler and choose the schedule timings; the rest are pre-filled! Learn more.

Partial Workflow search using Wildcards

The latest Conductor version supports partial workflow search using wildcards. For example, if you're looking for workflow names containing the term "test," simply use the search term test*, and it displays all the workflow definitions that include the word 'test' in their name.

Expand & Collapse Sub Workflows in Workflow Diagram

We are constantly updating our workflow UI to make it even more intuitive and easier for you to use. With our latest update, you can now quickly expand and collapse sub-workflow inline within the workflow diagram.

Drag & Drop support for Workflow Creation via UI

With the goal of making you even more productive when using the Orkes Conductor UI, we recently added the capability for you to easily rearrange your workflows by intuitively dragging and dropping components.

Community Article

We had an amazing article from one of our community members, Albert Wong, on how they utilized Orkes Conductor to send Brevo emails from Common Room workflows.
