This is a Flow Studio startup post. A few weeks back I locked myself in a room and added subscriptions to Flow Studio. In less than two weeks, the initial wave of free monthly trial will end. I’m writing this to be clear what we would be expecting.
Explain what will happen
Different Tiers of membership
Where are we going next
I have been listening to MS Cloud Show episode 276 where JD Trask from Raygun talks about startup with CJ and AC.
I have listened to it 5 times now.
(yes!) Add Subscription
(yes!) Do it via Strip
What do you mean paying is optional for your customers
It is a fear of rejection, it isn’t good enough and people won’t use it if it’s not free
OK. Wow. Startups are hard. Business is hard. Selling is hard. Development is actually easy, comparatively.
What will happen next?
Flow Studio subscription tiers were added on October 18 - so on November 18 - Trial status currently granted to all existing customers will flip over to Free status. Customers that joined after October 18 will have a full month of trial, so may flip after November 18.
This means these features will require a subscription
Get All Runs (slow) //better name pending**
(Bulk) trigger re-run
Different Tiers of Membership
These features will remain in a Free tier
Get Latest Runs // this pulls the latest page of 50 runs
The subscription tier is US$10 / month. There is a yearly discount at $100 / year.
New release Version 0.1.53
A lot of work has gone in to move Flow Runs into its own tab page, this gives us a lot of performance improvements to read lots of Flow Runs.
The expanding master-child grid is nice to look at but very difficult to keep the UI performance when there are a lot of Flows and Runs. There was also not a lot of space to do more work with the Flow Runs screen.
Where are we going next?
I’m hoping that customers will add weight to help me prioritize future features. Flow makers comes from all kinds of backgrounds and have very different use cases and needs.
I am adding more analytics - both for error trapping as well as feature detection, to work out what customers are using Flow Studio for. For example I know customers use sort a lot, but I don’t actually know which column they are all sorting by…
I also know customers click on /admin but I don’t know if customers actually have access to their tenant admin environment. So whether that is just exploration, or is that something that’s critical to their workload - and this affect what features I can add to admin.
I’m always here - comment here, on Flow Studio issues or support @ flowstudio.app
These next two weeks will be a lot of thinking and planning for the next feature. Customers have the power to influence what that is.
Flow Studio trial wraps up on Sunday November 18 - customers will revert to Free status
Get All Runs and Bulk re-trigger becomes subscription feature
