What this article covers

  • Active flows: what they are, how many you get, and how to use them
  • Manual flows: what they are, how many you get, and how to use them

After you’ve completed your first flow or two you may have noticed that they are active by default, meaning they update automatically at the speed appropriate for your plan. But did you know that you can sync your blocks of work manually as well? This section will guide you through the differences between manual and active flows so you can get the most of our service!

Active flows

Active flows update on their own without your input. This means that you could use your tools freely and not worry about having to sync them yourself or even bother opening the Unito interface unless adjustments need to be made. They are perfect for busy project managers who don’t have time to sync every single change manually.

You can spot an active flow by the blue toggle to the left. When that toggle's blue, any changes to your work items will be updated automatically.

The maximum number and speed of your active flows depend on the plan you are subscribed to and are summarized below. For more information, have a look at our pricing page.

Why does each plan have a range of active flows? Our plans are designed to be customizable, which means you can have the exact number of active flows you need to cover your workflows. Need more information? Reach out to us!

Manual flows

If you reach your limit of active flows, updates will have to be triggered manually for the flows created after that limit.

The grey toggle to the left of your flow is your indicator that it has to be triggered manually. You can do that by clicking the Sync now button at the right of the flow.
