How does the Workflow app integration work?

The integration works in four number of steps as described in this section.

Step 1 - Run Workflow

Now, if you wish to run the 'Evernote' workflow, you will have to specify it in Airmail as shown in the picture below.

Step 2 - Input

Airmail allows you to send specific parameters of any message to Workflow app as 'Input' and run an existing workflow (explained in Step 1) in the Workflow app using these input details (shown in the picture below are the type of input data Airmail can send to workflow app for any given message).

For example, if you wish to pass a Pdf file of a message to a workflow, just enable Pdf option shown in the screenshot above.

Step 3 - Output

This is to specify which action you want to run after the Workflow app has run the workflow specified in steps 1 and 2. The available options are show in the picture below.
