Once you have created a chatbot conversation, you can start your chatbot start point by creating a welcome message. Here are the steps:

  1. On the dashboard page, click the Conversation Name that was previously created.

  2. Then, the display will appear as follows.

    The bot response quota located at the top left of the page is the remaining quota from the total quota that has been purchased by the user.

  3. To fill in the Welcome message, you can click the bubble box.

    Welcome message is an automatic opening message to start a conversation with a customer.

  4. After that, the Bot Response Settings - General will appear as follows.





    Bot Response Type

    You can choose one of the following Bot Response types:

    • Text
    • Button
    • List

    For Welcome messages that are conversation-opening, the type of Bot Response commonly used is Text.
