Workflows are the final step for completing your solution. They allow you to execute a sequence of operations with a single click in the Workflow Launcher pad. Thus, they simplify the usage of your project and the creation of results. Furthermore, they are important because they are a central part of the app deployment. Whenever you assemble your Soley Studio project as an app for Soley Desk your workflows will become executable in Soley Desk. They are stored as *.slwf files in the Workflow folder of your project.
Therefore, we provide articles explaining the creation, parameterization, and customization of workflows in this section.

In this article, we explain how you can modify the appearance of the workflow in the Workflow Launcher pad.
Typical Workflow Structures
Two very common types of workflows are to start with an empty graph, e.g. for a data import workflow, and to operate on an existing graph, e.g. for an analysis workflow. For both types we have created workflow templates:
- Start with empty graph wWorkflow (e.g. to import data)
This article introduces you to a typical structure of a workflow that first imports data or an existing graph.
- Start with current graph workflow (e.g. to further analyze/transform an open graph)
This article introduces you to a typical structure of a workflow that further transforms an already opened graph, e.g. to perform consecutive analyses.
