Getting Started

    Let's walk through the steps to get started with FlowPilot

    There's a few different sections of the app to get familiar with

    Why FlowPilot?

    But, you can use other API's too. It's a great way to get started with building workflows without having to write any code. You can also use it to manage your existing workflows.

    The building blocks of automating an AI is to create a prompt, which we call 'workflows' and then create the various steps that the AI should follow in order to create a desired output. Through a text prompt alone it's hard to customize your output.


    In addition, we want to tell the AI what kind of data it should expect. For example, maybe we're creating business ideas and want a list of topics to provide it. Or maybe we want to create some jokes and need a list of styles to follow.

    Creating your first prompt

    In the playground you can try out any prompts you may have made. Let's create an example prompt to illustrate. Say we want to create a workflow to auto-reply to YouTube comments.

    Suppose we just uploaded a video about Drake and his new album.

    One of our viewers left us a comment like this:

    Drake is the best rapper alive. I love his new album. 🔥🔥

    We want to reply to this comment with a message like this:

    Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I'm a big fan of Drake too. I'm looking forward to his next album.

    This is super easy to do with workflows.

    1. Create a new workflow

    First, we'll create a new workflow. We'll call it "YouTube Auto-Reply"


    2. Add our actions

    For replying to a YouTube comment it should be fairly simple. We'll need to: acknowledge the commenter, tell them we're a fan of Drake, and then tell them we're looking forward to his next album.

    So let's create an action called: "Acknowledge", AI-actions work best with simple, one-word descriptions.

    Next, let's describe that action. We'll say: Acknowledge that you understand the comment & relate.

    Let's add a 2nd action and call it "Big Fan", and describe it as: Tell them you're a big fan too.

    Now that we have a predefined actions list, let's add our data.

    3. Add our data

    For this example we'll add a single field and call it "YouTube Comment"

    Now let's try it out in the playground

    Copy an example comment from YouTube or make one up. Paste it into the input field and click "Run".

    If everything goes correctly, you should now see some fun replies.
