Interactive Button Response Node, How and Where to use?

This node helps you to create a list of 3 options. The node then generates responses according to the input of the user.

Once you are within the Chatflow interface you will be able to see the "Interactive Button Response node" under the Interactive Message category on the right hand side of the page.

How and Where to use?

  • Click on the Interactive Button Response Node from the Node's Drawer on the right side of the screen
  • IBR node.jpg
  • Drag the node in the Chatflow canvas
  • Now click on the node in the canvas it will select the node and also open a properties drawer on the right side of the screen. This drawer will allow you to change the settings and properties of the selected node.
  • On the property drawer the first property is "Node Title". This allows you to rename the text written on the node. This helps you to identify the purpose of the node in the chatflow. The text written on the node title does not get printed in the conversation.
  • For this example we will enter "Main Menu" as the node title.
  • IBR node2.jpg

  • Next write your text in the Message field.

  • Click on "Add a new Button" option and you will see that 3 seperate fields will open up. You can either use 2 or 3 buttons to write the options of the main menu.
  • Write the options in the Button fields accordingly

Below this you will be able to see "Additional Options"
