Article Summary

One of the outputs that can be generated from a Whatfix Flow is a slideshow. Slideshows can be embedded into an article in your knowledge base. The advantage with slideshows is that whenever there is a UI change on your application, all you need to do is update the associated Flow. The slideshow content is auto-updated in your knowledge base. The users can see the Flow as a slideshow or run them live.
