How trigger event if we did not select ask a Question topic options and send new message in Fallback flow?

Hi @citron-truc and everyone, Hope you all doing well.
I have created a Fallback flow that show follow up question by using ask a Question  topic but the problem is:
         - When i send message at first it give me Answer and follow up question.

         - But if i select the followup question it still working.

 

The Problem:

- When i donot select the ask a Question options and try to send new textas question it did not trigger the flow  from start and it again show me the followup question from previous resonse .
- so how i can activate trigger even if i did not select the followup question option that is given by ask a Question topic.

here is my flow:

Maxmellien_2-1705938080200.png

 

- So if we look at the first question it give us reponse and follow up questions.

- But if we did not select the followup question and try to ask new question it will automatically give the follow up question options  from previous response.

I want to send new question to the trigger without selecting the followup question option.

here is the code:

Input data coming from action in three variable:

 

{'sources': '',
 'answer': "```this is the query```.",
 'followup': {'json': [{'question': 'question one text',
    'DisplayName': 'question one text'},
   {'question': 'question two text',
    'DisplayName': 'question two text'}]}
}

Thank you @HenryJammes 
I think i found the way to getout of Question loop.
- Just go to Question properties and make it donot repeat, and if did not find entity set to empty as shown in image.
- then use condition so whenever we ask question if not in Question options then it will be empty or Blank so we can start from begining.

Not sure I follow @Maxmellien , but why use a question for this, and not a message?

That way, any new user message will be interpreted as a new utterance that will either trigger a topic or go to fallback. 

In your example, it looks like the selected option chose by your user isn't recognized as a valid answer to the question, hence why I assume it asks it again.

Hi @HenryJammes , Thanks for your answer. 
I am using message but after message i show followup question in Question Topic.

What i have observed that without selecting the Question topic options i never trigger the start of flow.
I used the Question Topic for dynamic click, so we can ask a question if there any other way which alway trigger start of the flow then please help me if there any alternative to this. The below is my existing scenario.

 

- As i am not directly using Question topic in flow, the existing flow work like this:
- When event trigger we got input text in PVA , so we save in variable and also conversation id.
- Then we send these two variable in action and got resposne in three varable, answer , sources, followup.

- Then we first display answer and sources and check if followup is not No then we put this data into Question to show followup quetsions.
- If we select any question then we save this selectedquestion in varable and again send via action but this time input text change to selectedquestion and conversation_id remain same and when reponse came we use Go to Step which is the previous message topic  that exist after first action in flow and this is loop for follow up question and answer.

 

- The issue arises when I don't select any follow-up question and write a new question. It doesn't initiate the fallback flow from the beginning. Instead, it retains the previous response's follow-up question. As a solution, I plan to send this input text to the start and send to first action in flow to obtain a response.

- kindly use the above given code after that you can see my whole flow.

The Questions which i have asked of if we see the picture, is not in followup question it should trigger the Flow from start.
