Dynamic decision trees

Hi,

Is there a decision tree tool within Confluence (or an add-on) like this one: http://corp.yonyx.com/yonyx-resources/?

I need a tool that will instead of displaying the entire process ( like in visio or gliffy) it will guide the users step by step through the decision nodes.

Thanks

HI,
I was also looking for such a tool or an add on.  So I came up with a work around.  I used the expand macro to create each of the branchas of the desission tree. So by using expand within expand within expand, you can create several levels of the tree. That's actually easier than it sounds.  
for example, ou have a desission tree of making a hot dring. 
For example:
Do you prefer tea or coffie.
If coffee >with milk or with out> if with milk than with suger or without ,if w/o milk, with suger or without> if with suger.. and so on...

If tee> more if's....

So you can:
Write the initial text : What woudl you want to drink. 

Below that to create two expan macros. one with a title "Tea" one with a title of "Coffie". 
Then in the Tea expans you write the next leading question ( do you want it with milk or without milk) and enter the next 2 expands ( one for with milk and one for withought milk.. and so on.. for the rest of the question.s
Then do the same for the branch of Tea.

This solution was a huge sucess in our company. 

So, untill a real dissiosn tree solution is available, we are going to use this one. 

Maria,

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I have been trying to figure this out for a week now and I didn't even think about the expand macro. This solution is PERFECT for what I need at my company. 

Does this still work? It looks like nested expands have been removed as a feature.

I had the same issue; in the end I drew a decision tree diagram with draw.io... not so good for anything wordy; but used a diagram, then added more verbose info in text after the diagram to explain the intricacies.

Zingtree does this: www.zingtree.com

 

No-code interactive trees that are highly customizable.

Knowmax does something similar.

It is basically a knowledge management software. 

Decision tree is one of the modules of Knowmax

Almost 3 years and still no  Decision Tree.

I came across this post. Has Confluence added any decision tree processes in the last 2 years?

Hi Maria,

It's not possible to do this natively in Confluence and a quick search of the Atlassian Marketplace doesn't find anything that matches.  But I only did a short search, you might have more luck if you spend some time hunting for something.
