Blink's workspaces enable you to organize your company into smaller subdivisions based on your specific needs. Every team can have one or more workspaces. This enables team members to collaborate on projects and share Automations and resources efficiently.


Automation Library

The Automation Library contains a wide variety of pre-made Automations. Import an Automation template and make small adjustments to suit your needs, instead of creating an Automation from scratch.


Self-service portal

Blink enables you to create Automations that streamline workflows, and securely share them with other teams and workspaces. Users granted access can easily use the Automations and move on to the next important job, without waiting for someone to create or do a task for them. You can use any existing Automation that is shared with (exposed to) you. All Automations that are shared with you are listed in your Self-service portal. The Self-service portal cuts out the middle-man enabling a more efficient work process.


Global Variables

Global variables are persistent values you can define and use throughout your entire workspace and within Automations. With Global variables, users can store centralized information and pass data between Automations. This improves consistency in your Automations and saves valuable time as you define them once only.



The runner serves as the essential element in executing all actions within an Automation. It offers the flexibility of deployment either on Blink's cloud infrastructure or within your own environment. To enhance scalability and distribute the workload efficiently, you have the option to create a runner group that can incorporate multiple instances of the runner.



Tables enable you to present and interact with data in Blink, unlocking new automation possibilities. Since your Automations can write to Tables and read data from them, this enables you to create stateful Automations and workflows.



Apps are a visual interface for presenting data in Tables. They enable the user to take action over the data, by triggering Automations that use the data as input.


The Blink CLI enables you to build and manage your Blink operations from the terminal.
