Former Step 2: Preparing the Digital Twin
Step 3: Interactive Flow Creation - Set Up
Previously, Step 2 involved preparing the Digital Twin, but now we move on to Step 3: Interactive Flow Creation.
Interactive Flows have a wide range of uses, such as for training, assemblies, maintenance, troubleshooting, and more.
You can either create new content directly in the Interactive Flow, or convert existing content into frontline.io.
When preparing the Interactive Flow, there are several topics to consider:
Language - Content available in several languages
TTS (Text To Speech) active for Title and/or Description
Language options in frontline.io
Beginning and ending (completion) nodes
Regular nodes but require special attention in the title and description. In the first node, a detailed description can be added about the flow's welcome, objectives, and duration. The end node completes the activity in the flow and summarizes the feedback for the viewer.
Pop Up Node - color
includes confirmation action required by the viewer: yes/no
Warning node - color
Repeated steps - If certain steps are repeated among other Interactive Flows, it's best to separate the flows and use a "Go to Procedure" node to connect for example the safety steps.
For example, Safety, is typically repeated among other Interactive Flows. This increases rollout time, and improves re-use.
Style (relevant for 2D procedures only)
Each node can have its own styling. For 2D procedures, it's important to decide on the preferred position of the title and description fields in the Interactive Flow.
Best practice: use one kind of styling for the Interactive Flow
Font and color
inherit the format of your copied text by pasting the text in the title/ description. Or write directly and style your text within the fields
