Flows are needed to distribute clicks and forward clicks to content contained inside flows.
# How flows work
Keitaro makes the following steps to decide what flow to use.
- Takes a group of Forced Flows.
- Starting from the first Forced Flow, it checks the filters of each flow.
- If forced click doesn't suitable for all the Forced Flows, Keitaro takes the next group Regular flows.
- The way Keitaro checks Regular Flows is depending on whether split-testing is turned on or not.
- (Split-testing is off) Keitaro checks the flows from the first to the last.
- (Split-testing is on). Check the video about split-testing. Keitaro checks if binding is on and if the device has already visited that campaign. If yes, it uses the previously selected flow. If no, it takes a random flow, checking its filters. If click doesn't suitable for the filters, it takes the next random flow.
- If no regular flow is selected, Keitaro uses Default Flow.
- If no Default Flow in campaign, Keitaro triggers Do Nothing action.
If stream is chosen, Keitaro follows the Flow Schema:

# Flow types
- Forced. The flows that intercept clicks before regular flows.
- Regular. Normal flows.
- Default. Keitaro uses that flow if the click isn't suitable for any other flows to don't pass traffic away.
Set the position among other flows.
Keitaro uses the weight to calculate share in clicks' distribution when split-testing is turned on.
# Collect clicks
When turned off, Keitaro doesn't save the clicks to statistics.
Turns flow on or off.
