Step

A Step is the runtime processing of a Widget, starting when that Widget is entered. Variables get set at the end of a Step.

If you’re prompting a user for a text input, when they receive the inbound SMS prompt, they are actively in a Step until they exit the Widget (send a response or timeout). If the prompt is intended to set a variable, this happens at the end.
