Add a new answer

Each answer has the following settings:
  1. Categories - this setting determines in which folders/categories (from your knowledge base) this answer will be visible. (The categories also allow you to influence which modules have access to which answer, which we will explain further down below.) If it makes sense, you could add the same question to multiple folders/categories.
  1. Date - you can decide if the answer will be displayed only for a certain period of time. A start and end date needs to be set.
  1. Visibility: The visibilities do not directly affect (except Draft) the display of the responses, but allow the admin to "categorize" responses according to the desired visibility. The visibilities can be selected in the individual modules and are one of the defining characteristics that the chatbot has access to in terms of responses. We recommend understanding the individual visibilities as follows:
      • Public: The response is visible to your customers.
      • Internal: The response is only visible in internal modules.
      • Instructions: The response is only displayed as a work instruction for internal employees.
      • Draft: The response is not visible in any module and still needs to be set as public.
Once they’re created, all answers are marked as draft. In order for them to be displayed, the visibility must be changed to “Public”!
To start creating  content for your answer, click in the text field so that the pilcrow icon (¶) appears on the left side. With this icon you can open  a menu to select different elements. Choose between text, multimedia and download elements. For example, you can write a text and hit "Enter" to create more elements.
