Add field aliases to a Workflow

Field aliases make it easy to create a unique, scalable mapping of your data to any Workflow. By setting up field aliases on a webform and maintaining a 1:1 mapping of Anvil field aliases to your own data, any user can set up a Workflow to be completed entirely or partially over API.

There are two ways to set up field aliases on a Workflow: create a Workflow from a document template with field aliases or manually add to webform fields.
