App-to-app connectivity in Flow 6.11!

Flow 6.11 is here, and with it comes some app-to-app connectivity! What's app-to-app connectivity? It's the ability to launch external apps (like Google Maps) from inside the Flow app. 

There are thousands of ways to use this new feature: you can see a few of them in the video below. We're excited to see how you put it use!

 

We’re also pleased to announce the launch of a new feature in Flow 6.11: Flow Print. With Flow Print, you can print text and signatures right from Novacura Flow.  

Read on for all the details about Flow 6.11.
