The Additional Information slide of a script is used to hold the Text Input fields that are required for use with connected integrations.
Typically*, the Additional Information slide (sometimes labeled Additional Info) is added to the script graph during the script building process as a standalone slide, not connected to any others.
*This refers to the standard use case, however, there may be instances in which the commflow has several items of data coming into it at the time the script pops and the Additional Info slide is used as the first slide of the script. While the agent may not need to input any information on the slide in this case, there would be a required button push to populate the fields.
^^^ Common placement of the Additional Information slide within a script graph.
The Additional Information slide is configured like any other, with a few exceptions:
- Standard Fields are not used on a hidden slide. Current available Standard Fields are only representative of information that is collected by the agent.
- Fields on a hidden slide can be designated Custom-Standard, although that is not the typical use case.
- Unlike the Constant Fields, which are also not shown to the agent during a call, the Additional Information fields are not-pre filled with set values at the time of script building.
- Mirroring from hidden fields on the Additional Information slide IS NOT supported, however mirroring to hidden fields from the script is.
Fields on this slide are also used for the configuration of parameters.

3. How it Works
Integrations are configured to pass data into the fields on the hidden slide, which can then be viewed in the session data inside CX Create, or in CX Explore reports.

By clicking the Code, the contents of the hidden fields is also viewable by clicking View Data
The Documentation tab of the script which shows the fields and slide branching will display the Additional Information slide without the label:
