Gallabox Bot Glossary

When you start working on the Gallabox bots, you might come across some terms which are new. In this article, we will try to decode the meaning for each and every term in a simple way to increase the usage of the chatbot for your business.
Here are some terms to be familiar with before getting in the arena:
A chatbot is a computer program that imitates conversation with human users and are often used in customer service to provide automated and round the clock support to customers.
A trigger is an event that causes a chatbot to start a conversation. Triggers can be user input, such as a message or a button click for the listed topics.
It is a placeholder for a piece of information. For example, the chat bot might use a variable to store the user's location.
Chat Flow
A flow is a sequence of intents and actions that directs the chat bot to complete a task.
An integration is a connection between a chatbot and another system. Integrations allow chatbots to access data from other systems, such as CRMs or e-commerce platforms.
An intent is basically a user's first message in a conversation with a chatbot. For example, the intent of a user might be to book a hotel room, get customer support, or learn more about a product.

A condition is an expression that determines whether or not a node should execute.
A webhook is a URL that is called by the chat bot when a certain event occurs. For example, the chat bot might call a webhook when the user books a product demo, so that the business can send the user a confirmation WhatsApp Message.
A template is a pre-defined verified WhatsApp message that can be sent to the user.
Process of checking whether the input from a user is valid. This can be done by checking the length, format, or content of the input.

An API (application programming interface) is a set of rules that allow two software programs to communicate with each other.
Records of WhatsApp Messages that were shared when a workflow is triggered. This include errors, and completed status.
