Workflow Suggestions by Zia

Many regular activities like sending emails to customers or stakeholders, allocating tasks to team members, or updating details often take up more time than you expect. It can be helpful to automate these activities and use the time saved on other essential tasks. It may seem overwhelming to identify all these activities and create a process to automate them. Zia can help you identify repetitive manual activities and suggest a well-executed workflow to automate the process.
