Combining Email Node with Other Workflow Nodes: Enhancing Automation

The true power of Clappia's workflow automation shines when you combine the email node with other workflow nodes. Here's how:

1. Approval Node Integration

Suppose you need approval for submitted plans. Clappia's approval node lets you define statuses like "Submitted," "Approved," and "Rejected." Approvers will receive emails with links to approve or reject submissions.

2. Reminder Emails

Integrate the repeat and wait nodes to create a reminder email system. For instance, if approval isn't granted after the first email, Clappia will automatically send reminder emails at specified intervals.

3. Edit and Review Submission Flows

Don't worry about missing crucial steps even after submission. Configure email nodes in Clappia's edit and review submission flows to send notifications for changes or updates made by users.
