WhatsApp Recipe Testing

We seek to improve the conversation flow-building process by enabling administrators to assess and engage with bot recipes directly on the WhatsApp platform, enhancing the overall experience.

How to Test Recipe on WhatsApp?

1. After you are done building your recipe on our no-code bot builder platform. Click on the preview button above as shown in the below screenshot.

Previously, when you clicked on the preview button, it will automatically show you the webchat conversation flow. Now you will see a drop down consisting of options:

  • WhatsApp: For previewing the conversation flow over the WhatsApp chat interface.
  • Webchat: For previewing the conversation flow over webchat or over any application.

Click on WhatsApp to preview/test the conversation flow.

2. You will be prompted with a pop-up “Test on WhatsApp” window.

3. Add the Tester name (unique name), the number with the country code on which you want to test the WhatsApp conversation recipe.

Note: The tester number and name will automatically be saved for next time. You can also always add other numbers.

You can also add another WhatsApp number for testing.

Once you have added all the details, click on Test bot. This will check if the number can be added for testing.

1. If false – an error message is shown against the field, causing the error and a reason

2. If true – take the user to the next page where a QR code will be shown.

4. A QR page is shown, scan the QR code using your WhatsApp application on your phone. Keep in mind you are using the same WhatsApp account, for which you have provided in the previous step.

You can even test the recipe on WhatsApp web, by clicking on the “Click here to test on WhatsApp” button, shown below the QR code.

Note: You can also go back by clicking on the “Change number” to test it for another phone number.
