Human-in-the-Loop Workflow Automation

Tina Huang



Manual workflows are productivity killers. Automation has become our North Star, but many workflows can only be partially automated. They may benefit from or require human intervention. APIs give us the levers we need in order to build out great automation practices. Applications provide the interfaces that pull humans into the loop at critical junctures. Composition is how we turn those APIs into apps that integrate disparate applications, simplify workflows, notify people, and respond to interactions. In this talk, we'll demonstrate how we've built apps that allow for human-in-the-loop automation and show you how using an API composition platform like Transposit can help you efficiently build apps and bots that automate the tedium and let humans add maximal value without wasted time or effort. We'll also show you some fun Postman tricks that help in building these apps!
