  4. Reports and Dashboards

1) Pipes

In Pipefy, a process is called a pipe, as long as it has a beginning and an end.

Pipes are composed of phases, represented by columns that symbolize each step in the execution of a workflow. In the image below, we have an example of a purchase process. In this case, the phases are:

  • Screening

  • Quotation

  • Approval

  • Purchase

  • Done

  • Archived

Like a form, each phase has fields that represent execution rules and may contain conditionals to keep the process standardized.

To create a pipe, choose a model from our Template Gallery. You can customize it as you like. Alternatively, you can also build a process from scratch: go to the home screen and click Add new pipe.

🔔 Attention: Only administrators can create and edit pipes and add or delete phases and fields. Learn more about members and permissions.

2) Cards

Cards are one of the main elements of Pipefy. Depending on the process, it can represent a new request, lead, order, product, support ticket, task, and more.

In the purchase process, each card represents a request, for example.

Each card carries basic information to guide the process and can be moved to the next phase until completion. If you like, you can create an automation to move them automatically.

📌 The elements of a card (its fields) adapt to the most diverse needs of processes. Click here and learn more about them.

3) Start form

Use the start form to collect all the information needed to start a new process on the pipe.

You can customize it with fields and conditionals that make the most sense for your operation.

After customizing, you can make it public and share it with people outside of Pipefy via a single link.

Whenever a customer, supplier, or your team fills out a start form, the information submitted will compose a card, which will appear in the first phase of the process.

You can also group multiple public forms from multiple processes in a single Portal.

Pro-tip: The forms creation process is essential. Once it's well constructed, it will be much easier to manage your workflow.

4) Reports and Dashboards

There are two types of reports on Pipefy: company reports and pipe reports. Create and save them by combining different kinds of filters and information. Access them whenever you need to consult specific data.

With Dashboards, Pipefy's native BI tool, you can visualize your data in graphs of various formats, such as lines, areas, bars, tables, pie, etc.

These tools centralize data extracted from your processes in one place, making it easy to analyze information and gather insights.
