A sequence is a workflow for automating and scheduling common Mozenda tasks, including clearing collections and views, running agents, and publishing data. Sequences become especially powerful when used to automatically run chains of agents that feed into each other. Additional benefits include continuing to run a project if an error ocrrurs and optimizing created workflows.

You may decide to use a sequence to continue to run a project even if an error occurs or to consolidate notifications, scheduling and publishing.
