What are Flows?

A key feature for building out your AI automation

In Levity, Flows are how AI Blocks turn into an end-to-end AI-powered workflow.

Without Levity, a person might be performing a manual daily task of opening their emails, downloading and checking the attachments, and saving them to specific folders based on what the document types are identified as:

email-flow3

With Levity, this cumbersome repetitive process is automated by Flows. Incoming emails are automatically checked and sent to Levity, the AI Block classifies the data, and all resumes, contracts, and receipts are saved to their own specific folders, with no need for any human assistance.

Flows are a visualization of predetermined steps that you would otherwise manually carry your data through. 

For more examples of how the Flows feature can be used, check out our Use Cases page.

How Flows Run

Our templates make it easy to build a Flow quickly. First. click Flows from the left menu in your account. By default we show a selection of Flow templates on the main screen - if you want to see the full list, click "Show all templates". Then hover over any of the template blocks and click the Try it button: 

These templates are pre-configured and will walk you through the steps for setup. These steps will depend on which template you choose, and which integrations you need: 

Tip: Before getting started on your flow integration, be sure to set up all the moving parts in your other accounts. For example, if saving items to Dropbox, make sure you have the folders set up before you begin your Flows configuration.

Once you have built out your Flow, make sure you toggle it ON to get it running. Then, sit back and let AI do the rest for you!

Does the AI Block train itself as the Flow runs?

Training is a crucial part of the AI workflow, and is how your AI Block gets more accurate over time. This needs to be done manually, you can follow the steps in this guide to run a training on your Block.
