Loop block v2

A new and improved version of the Loop Block is now available in beta. If you'd like to participate, complete this form to request access.

The new Loop Block features:

  • Iteration-level timeout of up to 30 seconds when executing the entire workflow.
  • Parallel, sequential, and batched execution modes with iteration delays
  • Improved iteration-level error handling to allow subsequent iterations to run.
  • Iteration metadata that is accessible in subsequent blocks.

Once enabled, any new Loop blocks added to workflows will use Loop block v2. Existing Loop blocks will continue to function as before.

Generate complete workflows with AI

Generate a workflow with AI

You can now use AI to generate fully functional workflows instead of assembling blocks or writing logic. You provide some instructions and Retool assembles the required blocks with any necessary logic. You can also select a database resource and provide context about table schema.

Retool Workflows is generally available

We're excited to announce that Retool Workflows is now generally available. Workflows is a visual automation product that lets you compose APIs and database queries with code (JavaScript or Python) to automate work. It combines the ease of drag-and-drop with the extensibility and reliability of code that engineers need for production-grade work. We've also integrated it with the rest of the Retool product so you can extend workflows with user interfaces or vice versa.
