It's been only 1,000 days since Zoho Flow was launched, and we've built over 500 apps and 1,000 prebuilt flows already!
In other words, we've managed to bring you at least 1 new app and 2 prebuilt workflows every two days, since launch.
Thanks to regular input from our partners and users, we've had no problem choosing the right apps. In fact, some of the most used third-party apps on Flow, like Outreach, QuickBooks, and RingCentral, were brought to our notice through your suggestions. Our collection, which spans over 65 categories, enables businesses to freely choose the apps that work best for them, without worrying about interoperability.
And at the same time, Flow has made major strides in the Zoho ecosystem. By 2019, a mere year after launch, 1 in every 3 Zoho One users was using Flow, and over 10,000 flows were built exclusively among Zoho apps. Some users have integrated as many as 6 Zoho apps in a single flow!
The depth and variety that the Zoho suite offers magnified the need for a platform like Flow. So much so that, for some business, Flow turned out to be a dealmaker. This got us digging deeper into Zoho APIs, to make tighter, more tailored integrations possible.
Now there are over 400 business tasks you can readily automate with your Zoho apps, just using Flow.
To sum things up, Flow has helped its users bring the Zoho suite closer, bridge the suite with the rest of the cloud, and even build their own ecosystem of apps outside of Zoho. And we plan to continue to deliver value in all three areas going forward!
Head to the Flow Gallery to find out if our latest apps (we added 20 just last month!) offer any interesting new opportunities for automation at your business.
And don't forget, as you set up more integrations with all these new apps, you're going to need easier ways to maintain them. After all, time saved with automation shouldn't be time spent on maintenance!
That's where our latest product update comes in handy.
3 new troubleshooting features to help you manage your flows efficiently:
Visit earlier versions with ease
Some recent edits to your flow causing trouble? You can now review its earlier versions in detail to trace and identify errors easily. Learn more.

Get around glitches with auto-rerun
When a task fails due to server or API glitches, Flow can automatically make up to 8 attempts to re-execute the task for you. Learn more.
With so many new possibilities for integrations and easier ways to manage them, we hope we can help you be more productive than ever!
We also wanted to let you know that we're gearing up for our next steps. So if we've missed any app that's important to your business, now's a good time to let us know!

Congratulations to the Zoho Flow Team on the remarkable milestone! Your product is a real dealmaker. All the implementations we did with Zoho One always include Zoho Flow, no exclusions. And thank you for referring to our case study in your post; it is a genuine compliment for our team! It inspires us to make more good cases. Rahul Kumar is a great person to work with.
Thank you, Dmitry! We were thrilled to find out how much manual work you managed to eliminate with Flow! Kudos to you! We look forward to working with you on some more interesting workflows.
amazing and very much needed update! Re-Run & auto-re-run are life savers, thank you!
Thanks, Alicia! We're always happy to serve you. :)
Congrats Zoho team! Flow looks really good, and I am even thinking about cancelling my subscription to "Z"... ...once you add LearnDash integration :-)
Thank you, Aravind! LearnDash is certainly on our roadmap. We'll shoot you an email as soon as the integration is available.
Yes! Rerun! Thanks guys
You're welcome, Tyler!
Hi! It's vary good news! Is available auto re-runing in Zoho One plan?
Hi, Olga! Yes, auto-rerun is available on the Zoho One plan.
Automatically reruning turned off yesterday. We don't know why this happened. It is big problem for us, because .... Google Sheets says "Quota exceeded for quota group 'ReadGroup' and limit 'Read requests per 100 seconds' of service 'sheets.googleapis.com' for consumer 'project_number:471794752687'." How can we return Automatically reruning? And why did it switch off? Please help us
We're sorry you had to face this issue, Olga. We're working on a few enhancements to fix this for you. Meanwhile, you could try to manually re-run the tasks. In case you need help, you can always reach our tech experts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
what about Facebook integration is there any plan to do so?
Hi there! Facebook is definitely on our roadmap, but we might need a bit more time to launch the integration.
Nice update. It would be great if we could configure notifications around flows and connections.
Hi, Ben! Could you elaborate a bit? Is it that you want to configure notifications for events like flows switching off and connections expiring?
Excellent update! The replay feature was definitely needed. Great work on that.
Thanks, Donald! We hope managing your flows becomes a lot easier for you, now.
I am trying to integrate Shopify to the CRM via Flow however the app installed on shopify by the flow integration gives a blank screen. Is there anyone else experiencing the same and how can I have it rectified?
Hi, Jaffer! You're facing this issue because Shopify is yet to list Zoho Flow on their site. However, this shouldn't affect the working of your flows in any way. You can create a connection for Shopify in Zoho Flow and then integrate it with CRM and your other apps. Meanwhile, we're checking ways to improve the experience of the app on Shopify's side. You can always write to us at email@example.com if you need help with setting up flows.

You're welcome, Kelvin!
Great job folks of the Flow team - while not at the "Z" level, you are clearly making moves in that direction!
Thanks, David! We'd love your suggestions on where we can improve.
This is FANTASTIC! We are so excited about the versions and reruns. Definitely saving time for our team every week with just these three new features.
