Send user to block - CodelessBot

What Does This Plugin Do?


ChatFuel’s native “Go To Block” does not allow you to enter in a user attributes. This means you can not redirect to {{last visited block name}} or other attributes! This plugin can help you to do that! Meaning, you’ll be able to send users to a specific Chatfuel block as set in an attribute.

Level of Difficulty: Medium

Compatibility: Chatfuel

Plugin Request URL
  • Chatfuel:{{cbot_accesskey}}&secretkey={{cbot_secretkey}}

More Information


1. Is there a maximum number of Chatfuel block names that can be sent?

The max number of block names that can be sent is 5.

2. Can’t I just use the Go To block in Chatfuel?

Yes, but the big difference is that the GoTo block doesn’t accept user attributes. For example, suppose you wanted to redirect to {{last visited block name}}. You cannot do that natively with Chatfuel but with the help of this plugin, you can!
