Ochatbot – Questions Tab

Questions are the core of Ochatbot and how you start the conversation with your users.  You can edit that default question here as well as create new questions which can replace your default question or be placed elsewhere in the bot. Crafting different questions is the key to Page Targeting which allows you to ask different questions depending on which page the user is on.

To get started, head to the Question Tab and click on the green plus button in the bottom right corner to select Add Question.

1. Question Name: Type in the name of your question here to keep yourself organized.

2. Question Description: Give a description of your question here to help guide anyone browsing your bot after you build it.

3. Ochatbot Engagement Question: Check this box to use the selected question as the default. Use this when testing different default questions to engage your user more.

4. Reply: Type the text of your initial question here. Be sure to ask something engaging such as “What brings you to us today?” or “Want to hear about our promotions?”.

5. Back Button: All questions and intents automatically include a back button that links to the default question. To change where the back button goes, click the gray pen to open the editor.

6. Buttons: Add buttons here to link to a question, intent, or URL. The buttons you create here will appear in the chatbot window when your question initializes.

7. Button Text: Give a name to your button. For example, “Shop Now.”

8. Button Actions:  There are several possible actions for your button:

  • Link to URL: Link the button to a desired webpage.
  • Trigger Question: Link the button to an existing question.
  • Trigger Intent: Link to the button to an existing intent.
  • Trigger Ometrics Live Chat: Use the Live Chat code to link to Ometrics Live Chat
Other Questions

9. Question to Trigger/Intent to Trigger: Select an existing question or trigger from the dropdown to link to the button.

10. Trigger New Question/Trigger New Intent: You can create a new question or intent by clicking this button. Keep in mind that the questions/intent you create will be empty until you go back and edit in the appropriate details. New questions/intents will appear in the dropdown once created.

Once you’re satisfied with your question, click the Save button to preserve your work! You will see the new question tree once the page refreshes.
