  1. If you have never installed the UI flows app, download and install the latest version when you are creating a UI flow. Here is the documentation and tutorials to help you get started with UI flows.
  2. If you installed the UI flows app from one of our previous releases, manually upgrade by downloading the new installer from the download center and run it directly.

Note: you may have to manually enable the UI flows extension from the web browser.

We look forward to providing automatic notification about new software updates in a future update.
