What is a content only node?
Authors often want to display content to their end users without any input required. This node will create a wizard step that only shows the next and previous buttons.
Why or when do you need a content only node?
Whenever you simply want to display content (e.g., text information, videos, or images and document downloads), you previously had to use a single-select with only one option. This might have introduced an extra click if the option had not been set as default value.
With a content only node, authors can now use an input node without any options:
Example use cases
- Preliminary result in a CDD check: After answering a few questions and providing inputs, the end-user will see a preliminary result indicating which type of CDD check is required (simplified, standard, enhanced, etc.) and will continue the process subsequently.
- Preambles, section headers or info screen: At the start of your module you may only want to inform your end-users of the Terms and Conditions or you want to add a thank you page and downloads before finishing a session with a result node.
How to use the content only node
Content only node is listed under input nodes in a separate section after all the indivdual input nodes:
Once selected, the author can add the content, for example, a preliminary result "Client Due Diligence Required" or maybe a instructional embedded video or the terms and conditions for the use of the module.
In the wizard, that is in the customer-facing published version of your module, only the next button will be displayed instead of the two clickable buttons when a single-select node was used:
|Old single-select workaround||NEW content only node|
- content only nodes are not available within multi-inputs. Use the main content field above all sub-inputs instead
- content nodes cannot be referenced as there is not input/user-generated values available
- authors (currently) cannot use linkbacks in content nodes or linkbacks leading back to a content only node
