Error Trigger Node (Bug?) Couldn't activate the workflow

Do I need to connect start node to it?

n8n version: 0.97.0

Hi @mcnaveen, workflows with an Error Trigger node don’t have to be activated. Documentation here: https://docs.n8n.io/nodes/n8n-nodes-base.errorTrigger/. Hope that helps! :slight_smile:

Omg. 🙆

Thanks for the clarification. @tanay :heart:
