New Feature: Viewing Recent Messages within Flows

One of the things we've always loved about Flows is how easy they make it to reason how people are interacting with your system. TextIt has always displayed the number of times your users pass through particular paths in your flow, making it easy to determine how people are moving through with just a quick glance.

Today we just launched an addition to this feature that makes it that much more powerful. If you hover over any of the activity badges, we'll quickly pull up the last five messages that went through that path. This works for both outgoing messages, so you can double check how variables are being replaced, as well as incoming messages, so you can check your rules are working as you expect.

We think this is going to make it that much easier for you to quickly adapt your flows once you see real data come in, and make it that much easier to know exactly what is happening when people respond with unexpected values.

This is just one of many new features we've been hard at work on to make flows more powerful yet easier to understand. We're working hard every day to make sure TextIt remains the most powerful way to build interactive SMS and Voice applications. As always, feel free to send us a note if you have any suggestions of your own!
