The Input Dropdown Node allows your clients to choose choices from a dropdown menu. We’ll walk you through tailoring the Dropdown Node to your needs in this lesson.
Step 1: Add the Dropdown Node
Add a Dropdown Node in your bot from the “+” menu.
Step 2: Change the Field Name
As with any other node, you can modify the field name of the Dropdown Node for internal reference. Keep in mind that this field name will not be visible to the user in the frontend.
Step 3: Add a Description (Optional)
If you’d like to provide additional information for the user, you can include a brief description in the optional description box.
Step 4: Enter Dropdown Options
Input the options you want to include in the dropdown menu. As a pro tip, pressing the “Enter” key will automatically create a new option.
Step 5: Toggle the “Required” Option (Optional)
You can decide if the Dropdown Input is mandatory by enabling the “Required” option.
Step 6: Add Values or Categories to Options (Optional)
For each option, you can assign values or categories that can be used in Logical Conditions or the Calculation Node. Simply add the values or categories and click on “Add values.” For more information on Logical Conditions or Calculations, you can watch the dedicated videos we’ve prepared.
Remember to click on “Preview” in the top menu to see how your bot will appear to your clients. This helps in making any necessary adjustments before implementation.
Happy automation, and see you soon!
