First version of Experience Textbot has been officially released! Now you are able to receive responses via SMS! Here is the breakdown of what you can do with Textbot:
- Receive responses to the data collection blocks
- Receive responses to the multiple choice blocks
- Support of all possible relationships
- Redirect to web version to complete response
All your data collection blocks currently can be answered via SMS. Textbot is pretty smart; it will validate people's answers (for example, if email has the correct format) and let them know if their answer is invalid so you can always collect real data
Textbot can also let people choose from the list of options. All they need to do is to write a letter which matches to their choice. If you have "Other" option enabled - textbot would ask the responder to write it out.
All block relations are also working in textbot mode. Textbot knows when to open next or specific block in experience, submit the experience or redirect to the link. Cross experience relations (redirects to other experiences) are supported as well. Bot will open first block of the new experience in the same session so responder will not even recognize that new experience just started. Bot also knows how to work with Conditional transitionsof multiple choice blocks
All other block types currently not supported, so when the responder run into a block that is not supported (for example, video or donation), it will politely offer to complete response in the web version. Creator will see this response as one response in export
