Choose videoask builder view

There are two different views you can use when building a videoask. Most functionalities are available in both views, but depending on what you're building one may suit your preferences better than the other.

Map View

The map builder view displays a visual representation of any conditional logic you have set up, so it can be helpful to see the flow of your videoask as you're building it. It also allows you more flexibility in creating new logic through interacting with the builder nodes to create new steps.


Linear View

The linear builder view presents your videoask linearly, regardless of what logic you have setup. Note that you can still use conditional logic with this view, it will just be displayed in the dropdowns below each step, as opposed to in the view itself. This view can be useful if you have simpler logic with many steps, as it allows you to simply drag steps to change their order. 

The images above and below are the same videoask, in map view and linear view, respectively:
