Series: Create a call flow

Create a new flow


Prerequisites

The following permissions:

  • Architect > Flow > Add
  • Architect > Flow > Edit
  • Architect > FlowView

When you add a new flow, consider the following:

  • Newly created flows may take a few seconds to appear. Because authors typically begin configuring the flow immediately, this delay may go unnoticed. To update the current list, click the Refresh button on the Architect Home page.
  • You can select a default language from the current list of support TTS languages. However, if the language you want to use with prompts is not listed, you can change the flow to any language. For more information, see Languages and runtime data playback.
  • You cannot duplicate names for flows, prompts, or operations of the same type, but you can use the same name across types. For example, you can use the name "Main" for one inbound flow and one outbound flow, but not two inbound flows. 

Note: For first-time flow creation, Architect selects the default language set for your organization. In the Create Flow dialog box, when you select a default language that differs from the organization's default language, Architect applies the alternate language only to the new flow.
