Create your first knowledge

Definition

We call knowledge the couple question + answer.

The question corresponds to the end user's intention that the chatbot should understand. The answer corresponds to the content that you are going to configure and that will be rendered by the chatbot to the end user.

The knowledge base includes all of your knowledge! It's the brain of your chatbot! You can organize your knowledge by tag.

Knowledge can be simple: a question - an answer, or take the form of a decision tree. The decision tree will allow the chatbot to articulate the sub-questions necessary for its final answer.

Create

Much of your time will be spent creating your knowledge. This page then allows you to acquire the essentials for creating a knowledge.

Note: You can also create a knowledge using the interactive guide that can be initiated from the support bot through the Knowledge Creation knowledge.

Please follow the steps below to create your first knowledge.

  1. Click on the main menu at the top of your page:
