Using Text Entry Boxes and Advanced Actions to Create Branched Courses

There are a lot of ways to create branched courses. One of the simple yet powerful way is to use the capability of text entry boxes along with advanced actions. Here’s an example where I’ve branched the course based on the user input in a text entry box.

Let’s see a step-by-step demonstration to create such branching. We will store the user input in a variable and associate the variable with the text entry box. Then, write a conditional action to establish branching.

Hope this was helpful!

    I like the [username] personalization and branch by variable input … I can think of several possibilities here and will use this feature / functionality … very nice and thank you !!

  • This seems to be a good way of creating text input boxes. I will try to use it at my Real Estate website
