Group Multiple Automations into "Folder"

Hello. I have an approval sheet with 11 categories. Each category contains automation workflows with between 5-7 steps each. My workflow window is very messy and complex. Is there a way to group each category of workflows into a "folder", or some type of set? If I can do this, is it possible to clone an entire set of automations? Each set of workflows is essentially the same, with a few important differences.

    Hi Dennis,

    Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to use folders or structure Workflows in a set except in the specific workflow, but it's an excellent idea!

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

  • Hi, I am running into this organizational issue as well. I have 10+ step automations in one sheet. It would be extremely helpful to be group and create automation steps that can be tagged to each automation. There should be some sort of automation organization to be able to update/fix automations easily. When you have so many automations in 1 sheet it becomes quite complex/confusing to follow some of the automations created.
