Step 4: Creating an Interactive Flow

Step 3, which involved setting up the interactive flow, has been completed.

The next step, Step 4, is focused on creating the interactive flow itself. This process is generally simple and quick, but determining the best way to present the content can take more time. It's important to consider factors such as the target audience, the purpose of the content, and how content will be accessed, the device on which the content will be viewed. These questions can have a significant impact on the nature of the Interactive Flow. In this step, we will discuss the type of content that will be included in the flow. Subsequent steps will address issues such as content viewing across multiple devices, publishing, and user access. provides two levels of modes:

  • External modes: assigned to an Interactive Flow after the completion of the flow. These modes can always be changed or deactivated after the flow is complete

  • Integrated modes: the way content is portrayed, like troubleshooting and Quiz options, created as an integral part of the flow.

External modes can be assigned to a flow. The article: Interactive Flows - Modes Explained provides more information on the topic.

The nodes in the flow are standard interactive, meaning that the viewer is asked to take an active role in viewing the flow. Actively involved in approving the node about a prerequisite before starting a maintenance activity or removing the connectors before removing the fan. The viewer of the flow is actively engaged. The identical 3D Model and the real animations unscrewing screws from right to left contribute even more to the immersive experience.

We need to take all the above into consideration when preparing the flow.

Examples of interactive flows include,

  • Training flows - explaining the activity and the reason with an integral summarizing quiz

  • Maintenance flows - chronological steps with tools, prerequisites and actions

  • Trouble Shooting flows - selection points with cause and results

  • Part Replacement flow - perform the replacement of a part inside the 3D model

  • Assembly flows - show the steps for the specific assembly station, for building the 3D model step by step

The Interactive Flow has the nodes to support the different kind of flows.

See more information on the kind of nodes in the article: Nodes Explained
