About Workflow Functions
Functions let you create your own custom functions using Deluge scripts to manipulate data, communicate with third-party applications, and update Bigin with responses from third-party applications. The custom functions help in creating procedural logic to allow automation processes. For example, when a record matches the workflow criteria, your Bigin account automatically triggers the custom function and updates the Bigin records.
You must be familiar with Deluge programming language to create custom functions. To learn about Deluge Scripting, see Deluge Scripting ↗.
