How Orchestrate works 
Market-leading apps Integrations To perform requested tasks, Orchestrate integrates with the key apps you use every day to access the capabilities within them. See integrations
Do I need to know which skills are required to complete a task?

When you make a request, Orchestrate automatically executes an action based on the systems you connect to with your credentials. All you need to do is ask.

Do I have to start from scratch with every request, every time I interact with Orchestrate?

When you initiate tasks, Orchestrate saves basic knowledge about your previous requests so you can quickly pick up from where you left off and it can deliver faster results. And you don’t have to repeat yourself.

How will I know when new skills are available?

Make sure to opt into our email communications to get notifications directly into your inbox of all the latest additions. You can also check out this page to see the ever-growing list of new capabilities.
