System events

It is possible to connect a machine workflow to a specific event that occurs on the Flow server.
Examples of this can be when a user is added to Flow a machine workflow that sends an email to the user will be executed, or when a user steps over a log point in a workflow a machine workflow will be executed that commit the data to an appropriate data source. Connect a workflow to a system event by either Pick an already existing machine workflow or click on New to create and connect a new machine workflow. Choose a user that will be the executor of the machine workflow.
Observe that only machine users will appear in the list of users that can execute a system event.
Create system event workflows with the New button to get event specific parameters generated in the start step.
