How To Use the Image Widget

The image widget allows you to add images and gifs into your workflows and workflow runs.

This allows you to share things like annotated screenshots or gifs which can help illustrate how a process or a task should be completed. You could also add your company logo or any other graphics to improve how your workflows appear.

The image widget supports uploading of GIF, JPG and PNG file types up to 250MB for each individual file. Since there is no data limit on your account, you can add as many images as you need in your workflows.

Users: In order to add or edit image widgets in your workflows, you must be an Administrator or a Full Member who has been given ‘edit’ access by your Administrator. 

How to use the image widget

Start in your Library and look for the workflow you’d like to add images into. Click the three dots next to your workflow’s name (or click its name) to open up the right-hand menu, then click “Edit“.

Next click on the task you’d like to add an image to, then drag and drop or click the “Image” widget from the right-hand content menu.

This will create an empty image widget at the bottom of the task you are viewing. Click the “Upload an image” button to upload your image of choice. Add your image, add an optional caption underneath it, then save changes to your workflow to finish.

Pro tip: You can add an image by dragging and dropping, or copy and pasting it into your workflow whilst you are working in the editor.

Image orientation & size

Taller images will take up a lot of space in your workflow, so it’s best to use landscape format images, instead of portrait.

Note that it’s not possible to resize the images once they have been uploaded into your workflows. Aim for an aspect ratio of 16:9 and these will resize comfortably once you have uploaded them.
