What is the Flow Designer?
With the Flow Designer (formerly Big Data Board), you can simply place and connect on-screen blocks to create and execute all sorts of data processing systems. All within your web browser and without the need for technical expertise or programming ability.
BLOCKs and Flows
In the Flow Designer, you can process data in all sorts of ways by connecting things called BLOCKs. There are over 60 types of BLOCKs currently available with functions relating to Machine Learning (image analysis, speech recognition, etc.), Big Data (execute BigQuery queries, create tables, etc.), connecting with Salesforce, and more.

If a Block fails to process, the Flow will stop at that point. The following shows an example where the third BLOCK in a Flow failed.
