Select Avatar

An avatar needs to be selected before working with any of the other functions within Codebaby.

  1. Select an avatar from the displayed list of avatars.  Use the Search bar to filter the list of avatars. If you have more than 1 page of avatars, use the page forward and back buttons above the avatar list. Clicking on the header of the columns lets you sort by that field. Either click on an avatar name or click on the “…” menu on the right side of the screen. A menu displays with options to Preview Avatar, Edit (Select), Clone, Export, Lock/Unlock or Delete.
  2. Select Edit. Once an avatar is selected, the General menu becomes active and the remaining menu items on the left of the page become enabled. 
  3. Edit the existing properties or select a menu item from the left of the page to connect to Dialogflow, edit the character, edit and create intents and perform other actions.
