We've added support for calculating and issuing refunds in the Send to Shopify step! Now you can take a list of items and their orders and issue refunds, automatically.
We've made it easier to find which products and services you can use in Parabola with our new integrations page!
It's now easier to set a reply-to address and use line breaks in the body of your emails.
The Insert If/Else Column step has been updated with a fresh interface, giving you the ability to apply logic in plain English. You can also now combine dynamic column references with static text for even more powerful rules.
We made it easier to navigate between the flows page, builder, and flow dashboard, co-located similar settings, and unified the design language so it’s more intuitive to take action on your flows.
Our Shopify integration is now live for all users! Seamlessly pull in orders, customers, products, inventory, and more to use in Parabola. Automatically create and update customers, update product-collection relationships, and change inventory levels in Shopify.
We heard from customers that it would be helpful to have ready-to-use templates at their fingertips, so we added some of our most used recipes to the sidebar! Pre-built flows, with baked-in best practices, now ready for whenever you need them.
It's now even easier to pull in preset and custom reports based on whatever metrics/dimensions you care about. We've loaded in 40+ presets to match the reports you're used to seeing in Google Analytics and help you get up and running quickly. Goal conversion data is also more accurate and metric dimensions now use more recognizable names.
It's now easier to work with dynamic dates, like being able to pull orders from the last month. We also added the ability to filter for unfulfilled orders & improved the experience of pulling in order-level data.
We made it easier for our e-commerce customers to work with their ShipStation data. Now you can easily combine data from ShipStation and other tools (like Shopify!), build analytics flows, set up customer alerts, and more!
The Send to Google Sheets step now appends data to your selected sheets more reliably.
The Pull from Shopify step now supports Open and Closed order status filtering.
We've updated the names of our steps in order to provide more clarity around the directionality of integrations and the functionality of steps. Longer, previously truncated, step names will now wrap to additional lines, as well!
The Pull from Shopify step's timezone will now automatically match your store's timezone when the step is created.
We built a new Pull from email attachment step so you can automatically clean up, analyze, and take action on your flat file data (CSVs) by just emailing a CSV to a dedicated email address. Published flows are triggered immediately upon receiving the file. We’ve already seen customers use it to integrate with their 3PLs, warehouses, and anywhere they regularly receive CSV files.
The Find overlap step improves upon our old List Contains step with new, streamlined settings that make it even easier to compare one table to another and show you the rows that match, or those that don't. You can even match based upon case-sensitivity or approximate matching.

We updated the Twilio library and can now pull in more messages!

Drop Targets guide you to where to place your next step. Auto-connections make building so much faster. You can even drag in between two steps to splice your flow. And, if you insert a step between two steps where there isn't quite enough space, we'll do some auto-spacing for you!
The new flows dashboard just got two very useful updates! Recommended Recipes and a Recent Updates sidebar make it easier to find what’s new and what to build next.

We updated our recipes page to make it easier to find what you're looking for! Sort by level of difficulty, integrations, use cases, and more.
We released some big UI changes to your published flows. Now when you view a published flow, you'll see a dashboard of your runs, schedules, and in-progress run statuses. We hope it better surfaces the most important information about your published flows and reduces some confusion about whether or not you're in building mode.
As we started to add more steps, the sidebar was starting to feel pretty busy. So, the sidebar got a bit of a spring cleaning. Find steps faster by search, task, or suggestion!
We launched the Webflow CMS Export!
We were hearing from users that it can be difficult to find the files they were looking for. With that in mind, we created a file explorer for our Google Sheets step.
We improved the way our "Suggested Steps" feature works by making it update faster (thereby giving you better recommendations!).
We fixed an issue where our Twilio import occasionally didn't include the "body" text.
We've launched a Community for our users. Go there to get help, request features, submit bugs, showcase flows, and more! Join the discussion and share your excitement and feedback in our Community.
Until now, the Group By step was the home of 6 uniquely powerful operations. We’ve now split each operation into its own step to improve discoverability and searching: Average, Count, Sum, Find Min, Find Max, Merge values.
We made it easier to upload CSV files. Drag and drop or search through files!
We launched the Webflow CMS Import!
You can now copy and paste groups of steps into permanent snippets to reference or share. Sensitive authorization data is not copied, unless you can see it in the settings sidebar, such as with API Steps.
To use a snippet, copy (CTRL or ⌘ + C) and then paste (CTRL or ⌘ + V it when you are in a flow.
The drag-to-select feature allows you to drag to select steps.
Send an email to every row in a table.
We've made it a lot easier to access documentation from inside the step. You can quickly reference documentation without leaving your step. Check out the tab called "Documentation."
We've added a Webhooks Import step as a new source! Use it to build event-triggered flows. Import data that was sent to Parabola in a Webhook or via an API POST to Parabola.
Our pricing is now better aligned with actual usage and value. It allows for a lot of more flexibility and customization across all of your flows, and you can now have more than 1 published flow for free! Read more about it here: https://parabola.io/pricing.
We've made some big improvements to how long it takes for us to load large datasets from our servers into your browser. Datasets that used to take minutes to load into view in the result view now should only take a second or two (depending on your connection).
We added search to the result view so you can quickly find what you're looking for.
The OAuth authorization form is way easier to use
