    Hey folks, Shiyu from the Flow Builder Product team. Thanks for all your feedback in regards to supporting links, this is something that the teams are working on right now. We are hoping to make this available in the next few months. Thanks

    Hi Morgan,

    Thank you for the feedback and sharing your use case. I agree having a link to third-party resources will help improve the end-user experience and this is something we are looking to support this year in H2.

    Just to be clear, steps in Flowbuilder don't recognise links at all? Not even https://zendesk.com for example?

    The end user would need to copy the url address and paste into a browser? They can't simply click the link?

    Just testing and I can't seem to get it to work so assuming links aren't supported at all?

    I have a customer wanting to build a flow where the final step is to download some firmware from a third party site. eg: "Download here" - or a simple raw clickable link would work as well eg: https://zendesk.com

    The only 'workaround' (if you can call it that) is to have the next step push the customer to an article that contains the Firmware link(s).

    Not sure if there is another way around this if links aren't supported.

    Cheers
    Chad

    Properly working links would make the bot way more useful.

    +1, looks like a 5-minutes job to me, wonder why they hesitate to implement this. Everyone will need this, for e.g. referring to complaint- / order forms etc

    +1000. The current botflow configuration is so limited.
    We'd need a botflow option to add a step option as a link, and also option to add a step to go back to 1st flow (main menu)

    I've been following this topic for a long time.

    but didnt getting a positive response,that make me disappointed.

    the go back flow and setting a link in answer are both the basic funtion.

    We eagerly hope to see this update soon.
