How to Use the Decision Tree Gallery

Zingtree-Gallery

Interactive Decision Trees can be utilized for all kinds of specific requirements, whether they concern customer support, business and marketing, training simulations, medical triage or any other use case. The difficult part isn’t figuring out what your end-goal or purpose is, it’s knowing how to get started and present information in the best way possible.

The Zingtree Gallery is our go-to resource for seeing how others build decision trees that may be similar to your application. You can copy these trees into your account to modify them, view them to see how an end-user would interact with them, and examine how they are built.  The Gallery is also a great way to explore Zingtree if you haven’t yet set up an account.

Deep Dive Into Decision Trees

The existing decision trees in the Gallery have all been created from scratch by Zingtree users. Anyone is free to examine any of these decision trees from every angle, so you can see exactly how it’s all done.

Click around to see how different types of trees look and feel, or you can use the top navigation to filter decision trees by your specific use case.

Once you open the Zingtree Gallery, it’s easy to find the type of decision tree you’re looking for. Click the blue Play button to see the end-user experience. Or, click the orange Examine button in order to see how it’s built with the Designer or Wizard tools, check out the overview of nodes, and much more.

Copy & Customize for Any Need

While just diving in is a great way to get started, you’re also welcome to make an exact copy of any decision tree in the Gallery to modify to your liking. Once you have a free Zingtree account and are logged in, the brown Copy button adds a copy of the tree to your account.

How to Include a Search Form in Your Trees

Your troubleshooters and FAQ-style decision trees are chock-full of answers, insight and other information just waiting to be discovered. In addition to guiding people to find answers step-by-step, you can also insert a Search Form into your decision tree.

With the functionality of a Search Form, your customers can quickly and easily search for text in the current tree, and then jump directly to that section.

Why Use a Search Form?

Our clients pointed out that, while decision trees are built for customers to navigate through, it’s often much faster to directly locate a specific piece of content. Search Form queries match text within your decision tree nodes or titles, making it easy to search for specific information in a tree.

Note: This is different from Tree Search Forms, which lets you search through all the trees in your organization. 

How to Insert Search Forms

Placing this type of form is as easy as clicking a button while creating your decision tree…

Open your decision tree of choice and navigate to Overview. Next, open “Edit” for the node you want to place it in, then select Templates in the Content Editor to insert your Search Form.

There you have it! Now your customers, employees or anyone else using your decision tree will quickly and easily be able to search for the solution they are looking for.
