Best way to delete a node without messing up bots conversation tree?

Running into an issue where I have a step that is no longer required in my bot's conversation tree, however it leads to other steps that are still required.

 

When I delete the step, all the subsequent nodes are unlinked. I just wanted it to join the previous step, like in the Power Automate designing experience.

 

How do I delete this node without affecting the tree?

Hey @virakones,

 

At this time, I don't believe there will be any more efficient way than what you've found, unfortunately. I went and tested it myself, and as you said, it unlinks them. You do not have to fully re-create your elements at least, as if you click on the "+" to generate a new node underneath the first part of the conversation that is still linked, you can drag that purple dot just above it to the top of whichever node you want to follow it in the ones that have become unlinked after the step deletion.

 

Hope that helps speed the recovery process up a bit, at least!
