If you haven't heard yet, Botmock was recently acquired by Walmart. The design and prototyping tool will be sunsetting its product and public access on December 1, 2021. More than anything, we'd like to congratulate the Botmock team on the news!

For current Botmock users though, we know that you might be feeling a bit lost. Looking for a Botmock alternative is one thing. Migration - especially on a quick turnaround - can be a bigger headache. As a tool for designing, prototyping and launching conversations across any channel, we're here to help designers and teams easily migrate from Botmock and find a new home for their projects on Voiceflow.

In this blog, we cover the must-knows of migrating from Botmock to Voiceflow for both enterprise teams and indie designers.

Note: We'll update this blog consistently with the latest migration information and recommendations.

Export your Botmock Designs

As of today, there are two export options available for teams and designers to download and archive their current Botmock projects.

  • JSON - This is the most comprehensive option as you'll have the code-based version your project. Our product and engineering teams are currently investigating how this JSON file can be directly uploaded and converted to the Voiceflow canvas.
  • PDF - This one-time static export of your project archives each of the steps within the experience making it easy to reference and rebuild when needed.

Each of these file types will ensure that you retain the frameworks, logic, and steps from your past projects - not to mention make a roadmap for the next step: migration.
