Next, create a new marketplace account and log in. To install an app, just browse to the app you want and click on the "Install" button at the top right corner of the pop-up window.



If you are still using Joget Workflow v4, you will need to download the apps from the marketplace and then manually import them into your Joget Workflow server.

The new marketplace will be packed with new apps and plugins. Most of these apps and plugins are free to download and use. You can use these apps or plugins as tutorials or templates to build your own apps and plugins. Some new apps and plugins include:
