How to optimize flows in your workspace
These habits can help you get the most out of flows:
- Agree on flow naming conventions with your team.
- Establish a process for reviewing flows on a regular basis.
By working on flows as a team, you'll reduce overall test maintenance and prevent team members from making several nearly identical flows to accomplish the same task. For more information on testing best practices, see the article on general best practices.
