Workflow Steps for Jira FAQs

Slack workflows are automated multi-step tasks or processes that are developed in the Slack Workflow Builder. Slack workflows are presented as a linear sequence of consecutive steps and can be made of any number of steps.

Users can view workflows that they have created/collaborated on, while the Slack administrator can see all workflows in a workspace. For billing purposes, we only prioritise workflows that contain our app steps. We don't charge for individual workflow steps, we only charge for workflows using our app's steps.

Check out your usage Statistics and workflow activity dashboards in the app's ‘Home’ tab to view the number of workflows that are using our steps.
A Slack workspace is a single instance of Slack where people can work together, connect and find the information they need. Your Slack workspace would typically present itself as your-company-name.slack.com, but you may also for example have access to community.slack.com.

The size of the Slack workspace is the total number of users with an active Slack account in that workspace (everyone you are able to chat with from within the workspace). When determining the user count on your Slack workspace, we don't include: bots, deleted users, shared channel users or single/multi-channel guests.
This is determined by the total number of users in your Slack workspace. If it's up to 150 users you qualify for the 'Small Team’ tier, and if it's over 150 users you qualify for the 'Large Team’ tier.
All companies that have interacted with our app will receive a notification informing them that they're entering a grace period of 30 days to transition into a paid plan. During the grace period, please check the usage statistics and workflow activity dashboards to see how much potential there is for using the app. This will help you decide on the appropriate paid plan for you.
We advise you unpublish the workflow in case you would like to reactivate it at a later date.

Alternatively, you can delete it completely. You can do this by going to the Workflow Builder under your Slack instance and then select tools. In the ‘Your Workflows’ tab, click on the ellipsis on the far-right corresponding to a specific workflow, and then select either ‘Unpublish’ or ‘Delete’.
Users can view workflows that they have created/collaborated with, while the Slack administrator can see all workflows. Check out the Usage Statistics and Workflow Activity dashboard in the Home tab of the app to see information on workflows that have Workflow steps for Jira app steps.
There are two reasons:
  1. If you are using more than one workflow.
  2. If your company expands beyond 150 users in your workspace and you no longer qualify for the Small Team price. Alternatively, if you're currently in the Large Team tier and you reduce the number of users to below 150. All price changes will be reflected in the next billing cycle
We've crafted our pricing to be straightforward, ensuring transparency and clarity about your costs.
We understand the dynamics of workflow creation and its impact on app usage within larger organisations. To reflect the value derived from increased app usage, we've adopted a simplified pricing structure. We've found that with our existing customers, larger workspaces often experience exponential app usage, and our pricing structure aligns with this trend.
You have access to an extensive range of dedicated support as a standard, including customisable workflow templates, blogs and dedicated YouTube videos to help you get the most out of the app. You can also reach out to us by opening a ticket on our support portal, or send us an email. We’re always eager to help you get the most out of your workflows, and offer bespoke advice to fit your use cases.
