Hi there everyone!
Almost four years ago today, I bought this exciting game called Factorio. For those of you who don't know, Factorio is an automation game. Clearly, I have a type :) I mention that because, since 2013, they have been posting a weekly post called Factorio Fact Friday, where they detailed their development progress.
I've wanted to keep you guys posted on the development of Koupi for a while, but I never really got around to doing it. As a solo technical founder, writing posts and documentation is very time-consuming, so I don't always get around to doing it. So take this first post as my commitment to keeping everyone posted on the progress of Koupi.
Make Private Copy/Duplicate button
As you may or may not know, all the workflows are available to everyone, even your private ones. That being said, you would have to share the workflow ID or URL with someone for them to be able to see it (not modify it). This was done because we want to give you the ability to share your workflows without necessarily make them public and available to everyone.
What happens when you see a workflow you like, but you want to modify it slightly. Well, right now, you have to recreate it. So there has to be a better way. The workflow is already in the database, so there has to be a way to just create a copy.
Now there is!
Introducing the Make a private Copy button!
The Make a Private Copy button only shows up for workflows you only have read access to; that way, you can create an editable copy for yourself.
As I was writing this post, I decided to duplicate this button with a different name to allow you to duplicate workflows: The Duplicate button!
It does exactly the same thing as the Make a Private Copy button.
This week I released the first post of Tutorial Tuesday. In this weekly series, I will go in-depth in the creation and execution of a specific workflow or feature.
This series aims to give you use cases for Koupi, as well as tips and tricks that may or may not be documented (especially for new features).
Your input in those tutorials is very welcome, as it allows us to create tutorials for things that you want to use Koupi for. If you don't want a public tutorial for your use case, feel free to contact us, and we will create a custom tutorial just for you.
This is it for this first installment of Fun Fact Friday!
See you next week!
