To start with we are going to create a very simple workflow to demonstrate how Zynk works and implement what would normally take several hours programming in just a couple of minutes.
- Open Zynk and click on the New Workflow button or choose File > New from the main menu
- You should now see the Task Library pane displayed.
- Navigate down to the Web Library and then Double-click (or Drag and drop) the HTTP Task to copy that task into the Tasks List
- Click on the HTTP Task in the Tasks List and change the following settings
- Set the URL property to http://www.zynk.com (or another address if you wish)
- Set the Output File property to c:\website.html
- Locate the User Interface Library in the Task Library pane and add drag and drop the Display Last Output task to the Task Builder
- Click on the Save button and enter the name Tutorial 1 for the name of the Workflow and click Save
- Click on the Run Workflow button
- You should now see the Zynk website open in a browser - but what we have actually done is “copied” that entire page to our C drive
- Look in the My Computer > C drive and you find a file called website.html has been created
Congratulations, you have just created your first Zynk Workflow!
Why not try rendering the HTML page to a PDF using the HTML to PDF Task and then send the PDF to yourself via email - You’ll need to use the PDF Library and the Email Library to accomplish this.
