The patent application (Publication Number: US20240039800A1) describes a method, system, and computer program product for a drag-and-drop communication flow modeling environment. The method involves receiving instructions from a user device, generating a user interface with elements for composing a communication flow model, connecting elements to model communication flow, and storing the communication flow in a database. The system includes a processor, computer-readable medium, and instructions for implementing the method, while the computer program product comprises instructions stored on a non-transitory computer-readable medium for the same purpose.

The drag-and-drop communication flow modeling environment allows users to create communication flows by connecting elements like input and output connectors, switches, events, actions, deciders, and chat bots. The communication flow can include bidirectional conversations, actions leveraging chat services, and defining how input data is composed for communication channels. The system is customizable for different user groups or personas, specific to tenants on a multitenancy platform, and enables the activation of communication flows by an orchestration server without requiring user input. Overall, the technology described in the patent application streamlines the process of designing and implementing communication flows in a user-friendly and efficient manner, enhancing communication control and automation capabilities for various applications.
