Hi, Prefect 1.0 user here. Is there a notion of work queues? I saw the Prefect 2.0 offers that, but I would need something similar in 1.0 (a work queue and a worker pool that executes jobs from the queue).

Hey @Olivér Atanaszov!! There is not a concept of work queues in 1.0 (see here for some differences between agents and work queues in 1.0 vs. 2.0). In general, agents in 1.0 are responsible for scheduling work in your execution environment. There are different types of agents that can schedule work in your execution environment. I have found this article to be helpful in describing the 1.0 hybrid execution environment for Prefect.
