Immerse yourself in a total, hands-on learning experience with Appian Tutorials. In each tutorial, you’ll use a Getting Started application and step-by-step, video-based instructions to build various core, application components like forms, records, and processes. Videos show you what to do, and written steps make it easy to follow along with each successive configuration.

Tutorials are provided for guided practice after you have a baseline understanding of concepts and tools. We recommend that you complete each tutorial after going through the related courses.

To make it easy for you, we've already uploaded the Getting Started applications for each tutorial into our 15 day free trial site, which you can sign up for here!
