Retool Announces Workflows
November 17, 2022

Retool announced Retool Workflows, a fast, extensible way for developers to build cron jobs, scheduled notifications, ETL tasks, and everything in between.

Retool Workflows fills a gap that exists between non-developer tools and heavyweight developer solutions or apps built from scratch. In a world where every company is a software company, custom software is a key lever for competitive advantage. Retool Workflows gives businesses the efficiency gains of custom software at a fraction of the opportunity cost.

Top use cases for Retool Workflows:

- Lightweight ETL: Move, sync, and connect data across third-party tools and local databases.

- Alerting & Custom Notifications: Set up alerts that notify when business heuristics are invalid, specified criteria is met, users take action in your product, or when progress statuses change.

- Metrics Reporting: Aggregate metrics from across various data sources, format or measure, and share with teams via Slack or email.

"There are 500M+ applications coming to market in the next few years, but the number of developers won't keep pace. Retool helps developers meet the demand without sacrificing the flexibility and power of code. As the number of applications in the world grows, so too does the need to connect all of this software together. Retool is bringing our faster, modern approach from UIs to automations to do just that," said David Hsu, CEO and Co-founder, Retool.

"Code has always been a great way to solve automation, but it comes with a lot of overhead. Retool Workflows does away with the ceremony of building from scratch—spinning up infrastructure, authenticating resources, combing through API docs, etc.—without losing the hackability that developers expect," added Jamie Cuffe, Product Lead, Retool.
