How to use workflow automation to handle complex company processes.
With our supercharged workflow automation, you can automate even the most challenging and customized processes. You can integrate all sorts of systems, use your own JavaScript, have complex interactions, and write your own custom software.

This automation performs the following steps when a company record is updated:

  • If company is tagged as customer, hit external system #1 that contains customer data including their contacts
  • If company is tagged as vendor, hit external system #2 that contains vendor data including their contacts

Collect all of the contacts, merge the arrays, check whether they already exist in Tape.


When a company is updated + and if the type has changed → then add company contacts via external API

Showcases for a head start

We highly recommend duplicating Tape showcases to get the most out of workflow automation. Once you have duplicated the showcases to your personal Tape organization, you can customize the showcases as you like without wasting time rebuilding them.
