Template-first generation flow

Product update visual
This month we launched a brand new, more intuitive workflow for our product, and continued to deliver a better experience for Flowriters alike.

New generation workflow

In May, we released a new, more intuitive workflow for our product – “TFGF” (template-first generation flow).

Whereas the old flow required writing instructions before selecting what to write, the new flow starts by selecting the use case (i.e. template) first before writing instructions and generating.

The template-first flow paves the way for numerous exciting AI-powered improvements which couldn’t take place with the old flow.

Web app UI

We also updated the web app’s writing UI to reflect the new workflow in the extension.
