Flow Builder is Yalo Studio's primary tool for creating Conversational Flows. It is designed to make building simple interactions easy and complex interactions possible.
Flow Builder's flows are built using a visual canvas, which is translated in the backend to a scripting language based on Lua.
Flow Builder aims to enable non-developers and developers alike to build conversational flows and mini-apps that run on chat applications.
Click Flow builder from the left navigation panel to open the Flow builder.
The Flow Builder´s main toolbar is displayed in the right sidebar when selecting a step.
Flow Builder represents a Flow visually in a canvas, using three types of components:
Main Starter: the entry point to a Flow.
Webhook start: the entry point to a Flow. This step receives a webhook to the URL created in Flow Builder.
*New Step: this is the most common type of component in Flow Builder, where you can configure messages and actions to move to the next step in the Flow.
See Add a Step to a Flow for more information on adding steps.
Yalo Studio follows a simple user model of Trigger → Actions → Reaction Message.
You can have more than one Action, evaluated from top to bottom.
