Creating Flows

Flows contain all the logic required to analyze data.

They are made up of a series of concatenated tasks, and can be exported and imported as RBT files.

Each flow belongs to an environment.

You can:

  • start working on a flow from scratch

  • import a flow and continue working on it.
