Intro to Tines

University intro 

This program is designed to give you a lightweight consumable education around the Tines automation platform. It should take about ~30 minutes to go through each series within the university. Including beginner, intermediate, and advanced sections. Each module within the series is designed to bring you up to speed on the platform quickly. As you go through each of these sections you'll receive contextual information about how the tool works and the intricacies of implementation.

The material is a mix of text, images, how-to videos, interactive experiences, and ends with the next steps to get more involved. At the conclusion, you'll find additional research to learn outside of the University, as well as be able to build along with Tines specialists.

If you find that you are enjoying the content or wish there was more context please thumbs up 👍 or thumbs down 👎 at the bottom of the screen. This program is intended to evolve and get more modules in the future so your feedback will help us design more content.

Without further ado, let's dive into it 🏊

What is Tines? 

▲  What is Tines?

Tines is an automation platform that allows you to build workflows using "stories", "actions", and "events".

Key pillars of Tines 


Actions represent the individual steps that lead to completing an overall task.


Stories represent the overall use case that houses your actions. They automate an end-to-end workflow.


Events are the data that is transferred between actions, flowing from the top action down through the story.

This video explains the basics of Tines, focusing on actions, the storyboard, and the properties panel.
