Workflow Directory FAQ

How do I submit a workflow?

Submissions are no longer accepted. This decision was made long before Workflow’s acquisition by Apple. Check out the blog post for more information.

How do I include a description and explanation of a workflow?

The first action should be a comment, which is used as the description for the workflow. Use only a brief description, and place any in-depth information (if necessary) in a separate comment action. A good example of this would be how the Submit to Workflow Directory workflow is arranged.

Any subsequent comments added within the workflow can be used for attribution, explanation of how the workflow works, or anything else that the user might need to know. Avoid including these in the first comment. If there is a problem with the comment, you’ll likely need to resubmit the workflow.

Can I submit a workflow that I didn’t create?

The primary focus of Workflow Directory is for workflows to be shared by their creators, rather than submitting those that have been discovered. Any workflows you submit should be those that you’ve created yourself, and include information on how it works and what it does.

I previously submitted a workflow to Workflow Directory, but it needs to be updated. How can I do it?

Drop us an email with the following info:

  • The Workflow Directory link of the current workflow
  • The link of the new workflow
  • Reason for the update
  • Any other information that might be useful
