Major release features and capabilities include:
◼ Use Choice Selections in Other Elements
The Web Designer now provides enhanced use for Choice question responses, making user input easily available as variables throughout an Interaction. You can now use runtime Choice responses in the Allocator, Decision Points, Local Rules, Paragraphs and other elements.
Enhanced runtime Choice usage is enabled for:
- Two-Level Menus
- Yes-No Choices
- Regular Choices
You'll find this enhancement useful for quickly adding response-based logic to runtime elements and also for displaying key information anywhere in an Interaction.
For more details, see Using Choice Selections in Other Elements.
◼ Existing Variables Enabled for Input Questions
When a user responds to a Question, their input can be assigned to an existing (or new) variable of the Designer's choosing for access from the variables list, like any Interaction variable.
For many question types, simply entering '@' in the new Variable Name field enables you to select and assign a variable using the autocomplete variables list. Mapping user response to an existing variable reduces the need to create Allocators and other logical elements for this purpose.
In addition, input question responses are now automatically mapped to a HTML identifier that can be referenced by methods outside the Interaction, such as CSS or application extensions.
For more details, see Getting Started with Input Questions.
◼ Setting Finish Elements in Interactions
You can now assign pages as Finish elements on the Interaction Map. During runtime, when the user reaches a Finish element, Interact reports will indicate that the user successfully completed all steps of the Interaction.
The Finish element is often the last page in an Interaction sequence. However, any page can be designated as a Finish element, and you can designate multiple Finish elements in an Interaction.
