Discover how to create forms and workflows effortlessly with the Flow Editor. Simplify your content flow and enhance productivity today!


“FLOWEDITOR” in the Settings page has to be enabled. If you don’t have access to the Settings page of your dashboard, reach out to us to configure this for you!

floweditor settings

Main Settings

Office hour – Office hour that the live chat escalation will take place when the workflow is being triggered

List of variables – Only in use when flow is API-triggered. This is used by flow router to determine what variable is used as a router option. (Will be deprecated along with Router forms)

List of cancel keywords – Keywords to stop the workflow. Live chat escalation (if any) will also be auto-resolved

List of reset keywords – Keywords for users to restart the section of the workflow

Email default regex -Regular expression to capture email input

Phone default regex – Regular expression to capture phone numbers

How is this useful?

Each section of the flow will automatically trigger the next in a systematic chronological manner. It’s a quick and easy way to set a chain of content/events, particularly for forms meant to collect user information. The user is kept safe within the workflow, unless cancel keywords are used to get out of the workflow.

How does it work?

  2. To edit an existing form, click into the form itself.
  3. To create a new form, click the button, and give a title to the flow.
  4. Under the Default Settings, you can configure the following.

Auto escalation to live chat – Escalates the chat when user enters the workflow.

Before start action – Select an event before the workflow begins. This can be a content node or embedded content, an action of capturing user input data, escalating to agent, an API call, or a custom event.

Cancel keywords – Words that were added in Settings > FLOWEDITOR. You can remove them by clicking on the “x” icon.

Cancel Flow Content – The message users see when they cancel the workflow successfully.

Reset Destination – Which flow/section to reset the workflow to when the keywords reset/restart are keyed in by the user. Reset destination for each section is set here.

Fallback Keywords – Keywords you wish to add. Use comma as a value separator.
