Our comprehensive FAQs cover all aspects of Bot Management to help you create, deploy, and optimize your chatbots with ease.

What is session TTL?

It is the time your bot will wait for a response before closing the conversation with a user. You can set timeout message and actions when the session is dropped without user's input.

It should only be inputted in minutes.

Define the options for "Action on Invalid Response"

"Action on Invalid Response" phrase refers to action taken when a bot-flow encounters an invalid or unexpected response from a user. Let's define each of the options:

  1. Drop from the bot:

If there's an error, the Bot session timeout action will happen and the message for Session timeout will be shared with the user.

  1. Skip the Question:

Your customer will move forward with the BotFlow without answering a particular question.

  1. Proceed to Fallback:

Fallback refers to an alternative or backup plan. If an invalid response is encountered, the question will be skipped and will move to the next card connected to the fallback connectorπŸ”Ά.

Can I create multiple flows within a Bot?

Yes, any number of flows with the correct intent/ payload can be created within a Bot.

What is 'Intent' ?

Within a chatbot, intent refers to the keyword the customer texts you with when initiating a conversation. Without an intent, the chatbot cannot function. If you'd like your chatbot to start for any and every word use " * " as the intent.

What is Button 'Payload' ?

Payload is the unique ID given to each intent/option button created for the Bot flow. Button payloads are used in scenarios when the option keyword may be repetitive or similar in nature. Types of Payload in Gallabox:

  • Intent Payload to link bot flows.

  • Button Payload to link cards within a flow.

Can I use two different unique bots at the same time?

You can make a broadcast specific bot but you can't deploy two bots together.

Can I duplicate a pre-existing flow to create a new flow?

Yes, you can duplicate a flow and customize the pre-filled cards to create a new flow. This action promotes a faster method of creating a bot with the same conversational flow.

What are the differences between 'ask a question' and 'send a message' cards?

Ask Question Cards wait for some seconds for user response but Send Message Cards don't wait for user's response.

Ask Question Cards can be further linked to multiple cards depending on the options whereas the Send Message Cards can be further linked to one card.

How to create Circular bots in Gallabox?

A circular Bot can be created by ending your bot flow with a 'Send Message' card having button option. The payload of the required button should be the intent of your next flow.
