WebFlow

Procesio allows the creation of custom flows that meet your business need to interact with and automate repetitive tasks that work with projects and websites hosted on third party platforms using their API libraries in a no-code environment.

We are assuming that you already signup on Procesio and Webflow. If not then first make an account and activate them.

You can use the  Credentials Manager to configure the authentication credentials of the Webflow REST API by following the following steps:

Webflow credentials

2. Select the Add New button from the upper right corner.

3. Give a Name to the newly created connection, select Rest API Configuration from the Credential Type dropdown and optionally add the Description.
