  • image

  • video

  • audio recording

  • sticker

  • document

  • other files

To do this, click on the paperclip icon to the right of the text input field:

Additional settings for the "Send message" action

In additional settings, you can enable waiting for a response from the user. In this case, the bot will not do anything until the person writes to him. You need to wait for a message if you ask the user a question or offer a choice.

You can also set a timeout limit.

Then a timer icon will appear on the block, and two ways to continue in the block menu: if the user managed to send a response and if the time has expired.

If you check the "Disable global search" checkbox, the user will not be able to move from the current script chain to another one by writing a command of another chain.

Don't forget that the bot always needs a message from the user to start working. So don't forget to bind actions to events:
