Studio automatically saves your valid flow changes, but allows both "Production" and "Draft" versions of flows. This guide explains how to check the status of a Studio flow, as well as how to enable numbers for testing.
Studio flow status
To check a flow’s production status, look at the red Publish button in the upper right of the screen -
- If the button says Published and is grayed out, then this is the production version.
- If the button says Publish and is red, this is a draft. Hover over the Publish button for a link to the production version of the flow.
Testing draft version flow changes
When making changes to a flow, clicking the Save button will introduce these changes into Draft mode. Draft flows can be tested - without making any changes in production - by pre-approving specific phone numbers for testing. Here’s how to add test numbers:
- From the flow, click the Trigger widget.
- From the Config tab, add the desired testing phone numbers to the TEST USERS field. Multiple phone numbers can be added if separated by commas.
- Click Save.
Any phone number from the TEST USERS field that calls in to a Twilio line configured to use this flow will now be directed to the draft version.
