Monthly Digest | June 2020

It's been a busy month at Voiceflow with the release of two new workflow features, seven tutorials, six online workshops, and a host of smaller product updates to support better organization and efficiency in your projects.

Here are your Voiceflow highlights for the Month of June:


Introducing Canvas Markup & Export

Voiceflow launches Canvas Markup for Pro, Team & Enterprise Plans

At Voiceflow, we're constantly working to find solutions for our users – especially when it comes to improving their workflow. With the launch of Canvas Markup and Export, it's never been easier to contextualize your projects, consolidate your work, and hand-off to team members.

Want to see Canvas Markup and Export in action? Check out this video.

Logic Tutorials & Playlist now live

Ready to take your conversation designs to the next level? Dive into our latest tutorial series: Intro to Logic, where you'll learn how to create more personalized conversations with your users. This series tackles each block/step in the logic drop-down menu including condition, set, capture, random, exit and flows. Stay tuned for more tutorials in the coming weeks!

If you'd rather take part in a live workshop where you can ask questions, tune into our Fix it Hour with Nico every Thursday. In last week's edition, we showed you how to build a pizza ordering skill using Voiceflow.

Can't make it? Not to worry. All of our webinars are made available on-demand here.
