Workflows

These are a set of rules, like a recipe, that define when and how your feeds should be published in your channels.

Any workflow has a timer, which defines when the workflow should be run.

Each user can see differents available timers, according to its plan.

How timers work#

Timers are the frequency of which the workflow will be run. E.g. if you want to run the workflow every 5 minutes (the suggested one), you will have to set the 5 minutes timer. feedler will execute your workflow every 5 minutes, looking for new posts in your feeds and will publish them in the channels you have defined in the workflow.

Timers are also used to determinate if a post should be published or not.

Add a new workflow#

To add a workflow to your feedler account, you need to go to the workflows page, then click on the + icon on the toolbar on top of the page, this will pop up a wizard with 4 steps (Channels, Feeds, Template, Settings).

Feeds#

Here you can select the feeds where feedler will check for new posts. Can be one or more feeds.

Feeds

Channels#

Here you can select the channels where feedler will publish new posts. Can be one or more channels.

Channels

Template#

This is one of the most important steps, here you can define the template that will be used to generate the post in the channel. You can also use some variables to customize the template:

VariableDescription
{{feed.name}}feed name (the profile name on social feeds)
{{post.title}}the post title
{{post.short}}first 250 characters of the post
{{post.url}}post permalink. Supported options: button, title
{{post.url|button}}will display a button with the post url and title (on compatible channels, otherwise it will display the post url)
{{post.url|button[title:Read more]}}will display a button with the post url and a custom title (on compatible channels, otherwise it will display the post url)

You can also choose a predefined template from the dropdown menu. Also toggle the Send media option to send the post with the media attached (if any).

Settings#

Here you can define the workflow settings, like the timer, its status (enabled) and choose the timer on which the workflow should be run.

Settings

Once you filled all the steps, click on the Save new workflow button to save and activate the workflow. It will immediately go into action.
