Landbot system Variables

Sofia Teran Updated by Sofia Teran

Landbot has its own variable system. The bot will save each and every data collected by the bot in a variable.

Note: Apart from the case of the Welcome Message variable name, all the other variable names are editable.

You can use the variables to recall data and pipe it into a new block:

And most importantly to study the information collected in the Analyze section of the builder:

Let's discover now what kind of variables are available on Landbot:
