First Steps

How to take the first steps in the Cognigy.AI User Interface


In this tutorial we will learn how to build a Flow step by step.

Let's start with the first Hello World from our own Flow!

1 Create a Flow

  1. If you don't have an account yet, please contact us.
  2. Once you're logged in, select a Project or create a new one by clicking the New Project button in the lower right.
  3. In the Project Dashboard, click on the + button to add a new resource and select the top button to create a new Flow.

2 Add a Node

  1. In the Flow Editor, click on the button on your start node, select Create Node → Basic → Say to create a new Say Node attached to the Start Node.
  2. Double click the new Say Node and add a simple greeting message as text, for example, Hello World.
  1. Click Save Node.

3 Talk to your Flow

Now that we have a Say Node in our flow, we can test it by talking to the Flow.
For interactions with Flows, we use the Interaction Panel.

  1. Open the interaction panel by clicking the speech bubble in the navigation bar.
  1. Enter some text in the Text Message text field and press enter.
  2. Your Flow will say Hello World.
