How to Use Animations Feature on Botsociety

There’s a new useful update in Botsociety: Animations. We added them in the official presets: SMS, WhatsApp, Apple Business Chat and Facebook Messenger. Do you want to know what they are and how to use them? See the tutorial and read this blog post for all the information!

Intro to Animations

You can use the animations feature added in the presets to see how the bot-user conversation flows. Among these is the entry animation Push Notification, that works as the entry point to the bot-user interaction.

We also included Apple Business Chat animations, such as the Apple Pay, List Picker, Time Picker and more. In Botsociety, the animations are attached by default on these message types, but you’re able to deactivate them or change the active animation through the animations residual menu. They can be seen when you preview your design on the interactive or video preview, and on the video download.

Start using the Animations feature

To start using this feature, select the option Entry animation: Push notification from the message type dropdown when you begin the conversation.

Then you will have to fill out the fields Sender number and the text you want the user to see in the notification. You can use the same text for the first message, as it will be the text the user will see first in the conversation. You can attach the animations on message types in both iOS and Android devices, you just need to click on the icons on the top to see how it will look in each case.
