Getting started guide (Part 4)


Time to read: 3-5 minutes

We have created this getting started guide to help you get up and running with VoiceXD. We will go through a series of examples that show you how you can go from a concept to design in a matter of minutes and show you different ways that VoiceXD helps you manage your model as it scales.

What you’ll learn

Key concepts

  • Branches can be added before condition nodes, if you'd like to create an alternate path with different values for your dialogue and context variables
  • Branches can also be added after any response node if you'd like to handle different responses from the user
  • Deleting a variable from your project library will remove it from all scripts and branches (including deleting branches that are contingent on the variable deleted)

Adding branches

To add a new branch click on the plus icon before any condition node or after any reponse node.

Variables and branches

If a variable is added or removed from the conversation, all lower level branches that inherit that variable through a condition node will also automatically add/remove the variable. This helps you keep your model consistent without having to manually update your variables throughout the model.

Removing branches

Branches can be removed in 3 different ways:

1) Clicking on the trash icon next to any branch will delete it

2) Removing a turn that contains branches will remove all of the connected branches

3) If a conversation is branched off of a condition node, and the condition node is removed, the corresponding branches will also be deleted

You're ready to start designing!
