Testing your flow with a WhatsApp conversation

Make sure to enter a space after !test and enter your Flow name precisely as it appears in Flow Builder.

  1. The Yalo Developer WhatsApp retrieves the Flow and confirms that you are now testing it.

Yalo Developer responds, telling you that you are now routed to the Flow name you gave it.

  1. Say 'hello' to your Flow to confirm you are routed correctly.

If Yalo Developer responds with your expected message, you can now test your Flow!

  1. Use the !reset command to reset your test after new Flow changes have been published.

A new !test [new Flow name] command will reroute you to test another Flow.
