How to Access the Demos

The demos can be accessed in the normal list of Product Guides, i.e. navigate to the menu "Product Guides" and then "View all Product Guides". Please note that depending on your requirements, excentos might not offer every demo in your test account.

What Can You Do with the Demos?

If you want to play around with the Demo Product Guide, you are welcome to add or delete Stages, Questions and Answer Options or change the data binding or recommendation behaviour. Please be aware of that excentos does not refresh your Demo Product Guide automatically, so once you have deleted or changed some of its elements or the entire demo, they are gone. 

If you want us to refresh your demo to the initial status, please let us know and we will take care of it.

Product Data of the Demo "Bike Advisor"


If you want to understand how excentos built the Demo Bike Advisor Product Guide including the product data, you might want to check how the Questions and Answer Options are connected to the Bike Advisor product data file. You can examine the data binding option of each Question / Answer Option of the demo and compare it with this data file that excentos used to configure the Demo_BikeAdvisor:


  File Modified
File data_bikes.ods Jan 23, 2020 by Julius Höfler
File data_bikes.csv Jan 23, 2020 by Julius Höfler



You can compare the comma-separated values (CSV) or the OpenDocument Spreadsheet (ODS) file. The ODS file will directly open in Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc, depending on the software you have installed on your PC. On the other hand, the CSV file often opens in a text editor per default which is far less easy to read.


You can learn a lot more about how to work with product data in the Prepare the Product Data section.
