For users, Macros can easily be authored at a simple Record-and-Playback level using Alt-R to start and Alt-R to finish...a few more steps and the Macro is ready to run again and again. (See Using WebFlow Macros in Common Actions)
Webflow Macros can be configured and managed so that only selected users can Author macros or Edit existing macros.
