Example workflows: Trigger & Action

Mation provides some example flows for you to copy, edit or simply to spark your creativity.

Check out our example flows and learn how they can improve your work and business.

Create a flow

To learn how to set up a flow, it's best to start with a real use case.

Let's assume we would like to create a flow that fetches new submissions from Typeform and then sends them to a Slack channel.

To perform that task we will use the Typeform and Slack apps. Simply follow these instructions to create your first flow with Mation.

Alternatively take a look at our example flows. You might find these flows helpful for your enterprise, or find inspiration to design your own flows.

Connecting third-party applications

To learn how to connect a third-party application, go to connecting apps and look up the respective app and follow instructions.


  • Mation enables you to connect different third-party apps and services to automate your business processes.
  • Mation lets you design and automate complex workflows.
  • Mation uses a no-code approach.
  • Mation is fully GDPR compliant.
  • Mation is not vendor locked.


  1. Check Connections: Ensure that all connections between Mation and the integrated applications are active and authenticated. Expired credentials or changed passwords can disrupt workflows.
  2. Review Flow Configurations: Double-check your flow setups. Make sure triggers and actions are correctly configured. A misconfigured trigger or action can lead to unexpected results.
  3. Look for Error Messages: Check for any error messages within Mation. These messages can often pinpoint exactly where a problem is occurring.
  4. Test Individual Components: Isolate and test each part of your automation. For example, if a flow involves capturing data from a form and sending it to a database, test each part separately to identify where the issue lies.
  5. Consult Documentation and Support Resources: Refer to Mation’s Documentation for specific guidance on common issues. If the problem persists, reaching out to their support team or community forums can provide more targeted help.
  6. Check for Updates: Ensure that connected applications are up-to-date. Sometimes, updates can fix known bugs or compatibility issues.
  7. Monitor API Limits and Quotas: If your flow involves APIs, be aware of any rate limits or quotas that might be causing interruptions.
  8. Review Logs: If available, review the logs in Mation for any unusual activity or errors that occurred during the execution of the flows.
  9. Network and Security Settings: For webhook-based triggers or actions that require network access, ensure that network and security settings (like firewalls) are configured to allow these communications.

By methodically working through these steps, you can identify and resolve most issues you might encounter while using Mation. If the problem is complex or persists, it’s advisable to contact Mation’s support for further assistance.
