The Flow Chart

SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

The Flow Chart allows you to control the sequence in which displays are shown to the learner.  The flow can include branches that are selected based on a learner's actions.

Although not obvious at first, the Flow Chart can help you create rich interactions much more quickly and easily than by using the Action List alone.

In the example below, the Flow Chart is used to create a branching scenario whereby the simulated customer on the left will react to choices that the learner makes while playing the role of the customer support representative on the right.

The Flow Chart is highly configurable. For example, you can choose how to capture the learner's responses (e.g. click a radio button, click a hotspot, enter text into an input field, etc.), you can choose the number of options or branches to include, you can loop branches, and so on.
