For returning users of Trifacta, you may have noticed a change in your usual workflow. Our latest version introduces the new Flow View, which features updated visuals and new functionality.
Improved flow visuals
The new Flow View improves the user experience when working within the flow view and enhances the ability to organize, annotate, visualize and customize flows.
We have a redesigned canvas to show the connections of sources, recipes, and outputs, making it easier to understand the flow of your data from end to end. The new interface turns reference datasets and outputs into standalone nodes on the canvas rather than being bound to a recipe. This has been a much-requested enhancement and gives more visibility into the exact process of a flow.
New flow interactions
The new flow canvas allows users to customize their flows with all-new interactions. Features include:
Drag and drop datasets, recipes, and outputs to rearrange the flow to help with organization.
Toggle zoom levels
Pan around the canvas
Add comments and annotations within the flow canvas
Select multiple nodes with command/ctrl + drag or command/ctrl + clicking multiple nodes.
Create joins and unions from the canvas

In 8.8+, you can Right-click anywhere on the Flow view and select the option Add dataset in the context menu.
From v8.7 onwards, the Flow sharing button is available directly within the Flow View.
In the Flow View, you can click on the Share button on the top right corner of the screen to share the flow.
