Response path UI control - new user

(Hayden Saunders) #1

It took me ages to grasp how response paths work. I got a bit confused by the way this is referenced in the UI when creating an action. With the current New Action screen design there is a toggle link with the label “Specify a response path”. When you expand the toggle there is a red “Required field” notice. So initially I dutifully went ahead and typed in some literal response path text every time I created an action, which caused unexpected behaviour. I realise now that if you close the toggle as this has the effect of forcing the default response path to be used. I think this would have been easier to understand for me if it was presented as menu options:

[x] Use default response path
[o] Specify response path

Same for the message type.

Hope this is helpful!
