Flow vs Github Actions: What are the differences?

What is Flow? Simple project and task management for busy teams. Flow is an online collaboration platform that makes it easy for people to create, organize, discuss, and accomplish tasks with anyone, anytime, anywhere. By merging a sleek, intuitive interface with powerful functionality, we're out to revolutionize the way the world's productive teams get things done.

What is Github Actions? Automate your workflow from idea to production. It makes it easy to automate all your software workflows, now with world-class CI/CD. Build, test, and deploy your code right from GitHub. Make code reviews, branch management, and issue triaging work the way you want.

Flow and Github Actions are primarily classified as "Project Management" and "Workflow Manager" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Flow are:
