After opening the new question dialogue, fill the form as per the screenshot below and click save.

Step 2:

The Upload Question node that we have just created is now in the Chat Builder and it has automatically generated 2 answer nodesUpload failed, Upload successful.

The 2 answer nodes begin 2 new branches in the flow.

  • Upload failed branch When the upload fails, the flow directs to this branch.
  • Upload successful branch – When the upload is successful, the flow directs to this branch.

Step 3:

Extend the branches by adding more nodes – Text nodes, Image Link nodes, Video Embed nodes, Branching/Question nodes and Command nodes.
