Enabling Article Recommendations in Web Widget (Classic)

Return to top


  • 上城隆彦

    I saw "To enable Answer Bot for the Web Widget" to enable Answer Bot.
    However, I don't see the Answer Bot toggle in my account.
    The Answer Bot item will also not be displayed for another account.
    You should have an add-on, but is there something missing?
    Even if I contact Japanese support, I am in trouble because there is no reply.

    Hello @... 

    I am setting up answer bot, I have a question please. 

    The answer bot does not close or refresh after the customer responds to the customer satisfaction survey. Even refreshing the browser doesn't help and the answer bot stops responding.

    Hi Tn,

    I'm sorry to hear that your Answerbot is behaving differently. Have you tried to clear cache and cookies, and use an incognito browser to see if the issue will persist?

    All the best!

    Hi Zendesk Team,

    is it possible to use the answer-bot outside our working hours and deactivate him while we have live support ?

  • Jonathan Simone

    I prefer this behavior from Answerbot currently (the classic non-flow builder version that is) as it pays attention to business hours, availability and allows for different channels.

    It seems like this is enabled by going to Channels > Web Widget (Classic) > and then turning on "Article Recommendations".

    My questions is what prevents the flow builder mode from becoming active?

    Right now it appears as though I have messaging enabled and I see flow builder appears to be active which we do not want yet until more features are added such as the ability to allow users to select different channels, pays attention to agent availability and business hours.

    Hi Toni,

    Once this feature is activated, then it will be available during your operating and offline hours. The Answer Bot will still be enabled before offering the contact channels that are activated on your widget settings. See https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115009692388 for activating components in your chat widget.

    Hey Jon,

    I'm going to bring this into a ticket so we can look into this further with you. You'll receive an email shortly stating your ticket has been created. :)

    I am having trouble with my AnswerBot generating articles when someone types a search. My AnswerBot starts over when I enter keywords instead of generating a article. Any suggestions on how to change this?

    Is there a way to edit the script and flow of the Answer Bot with Help Center article recommendations?
