Intent Answers

Answers are pre-set responses that the Chatbot sends for a visitor's specific questions. Comm100 Chatbot allows sending a variety of answers over different channels, like Live Chat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, LINE, WeChat, and so forth. 

You can set answers using the actions available in the Answers section of Intent and use them in certain query types as they are resolved differently across various channels. 

Example 1: If a website visitor asks an account-specific question during a chat conversation, the Chatbot can return the answer as a private conversation. However, if the visitor sends a query via a Facebook post or through a tweet, to protect visitor privacy, you may want the Chatbot to send a message to visitors to start a chat. 

Example 2: If your Comm100 is integrated with Salesforce or Dynamic 365,  you can use the following actions to manage records, such as, create a record, find a record, find a record by SOQL, or find a record by FetchXML.  

If visitors ask a question in a channel that does not have a dedicated answer, the Chatbot returns the set of default answers.

Answers Type 

Comm100 Chatbot supports different types of answers across various channels. You can use the actions available in the Answers section of any intent to build a guided workflow for an intent. 

These actions allow your Chatbot to send content, collect information, and perform advanced actions while communicating with your visitor.  

You can set an answer in a combination of any of the following action types: 

  • Send Content 
  • Collect Info
  • Flow Operations 
  • Advanced Options 
  • Salesforce actions 
  • Dynamic 365 actions  


Send Content: You can use the Send Content actions to send a message, image, video, quick reply, or a canned quick reply. Your answer flow can combine simple text messages, images, videos, links of any article. You can use buttons to provide options to the visitor. While adding buttons, link each button to intent, a webpage, or a webview. You can also use dynamic info that includes visitor’s Name, IP, Country, State, City, and any data you gather via Custom Variables and Entity values collected in this intent.
