# Bot Templates

# Create Flows

There are 2 ways you can create new flows:

  1. Set up a bot and create flow for the bot. (create from blank or template)
  2. Install a template as a sole flow.

Visit our template store here (opens new window).

WARNING

When you just install a template without connecting it to any bot. You are unable to test the flow.

# Create Templates

A template is created from one of your existing flows and the flow thereafter becomes the source flow of the template.

WARNING

Source flow is important if you need to edit/update the template in the future. Make sure you keep and mark it safely. If you accidentally delete it, you cannot edit the template anymore. Try to unlock and install the template to be a new source flow and re-create a template with that source flow.

Follow steps 1, 2 and 3 above, then select a source flow from the existing flows.
