Interactive Text Response-Branched, How and Where to use ?

This node allows the chatbot to navigate to a different chat branch based on the user's short response.

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

How and Where to use?

  • 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 "Options" as the node title.
  • Once you ae done writing the title. Enter the message in the Message Field. You can write "Reply 1 for A, Reply 2 for B" and so on.
  • Scroll down and add the options respectively.
  • You can also capture the user's input by clicking on "Save User Input". For this you need to create a lead data field if it is not present in the dropdown below "Save User Input". If the data field is present you can select it from the dropdown.
  • Next drag a basic message node below this node and connect the options with it.
  • In this basic message you can print out whatever selection the user has chosen. You can write "Thank you for choosing A/B/C"
