Entry Points basics
Entry Points live in Flows in the Automation tab. There are three ways to add an Entry Point to your flow: by double-clicking or right-clicking in any blank area of the workspace, by clicking the + symbol to the right of your Instagram flow name, or by clicking the small icon with the screen and + symbol on the right side of the workspace.
❗ Note: While you can set up Entry Points at any stage of the building process, you must connect an Instagram Business or Creator account to your bot to activate it.
On/off toggles. You can set up Entry Points even if your flow isn't ready yet. Entry Points are turned off by default, so you can build a chatbot and then turn them on whenever you're ready.
With some Entry Points you can have as many turned on at a time as you want (like Comments Autoreply EP), and with some—only one (like Instagram Direct and Story Mention EPs).
