CTOT #53: Simplifying Data Usage with the Web-based Screenflow Designer
In previous episodes, Michael Rowley explained how the Web-based Screenflow Designer (formerly Socrates) simplified the design of screenflow applications through the innovative concept of guidance trees. In this episode, Michael also demonstrated how the Web-based Screenflow Designer also simplifies how the data is used. We saw how screenflows could call automated steps, but unlike technologies that have come before, did not require the designer to map input and output parameters to variables. This unique approach allowed the domain expert to focus on creating the guidance tree logic and delegated the complexity of data mapping to the developer instead.
