Click the options below to learn more about when to utilize the bot builder and Support triggers in messaging through your conversations.
Before live messaging
After live messaging begins
When customers interact with the bot in the Web Widget, those answers and conversation bots are designed in the bot builder. Use the bot builder to build intents if you want an event to happen before the customer actively messages a team member.
For example, use answers to create an intent to ask for important information prior to actively messaging with a team member.
Messaging between staff members and end users
Support triggers don't run when you are actively messaging with an end user. However, Support triggers can run once a messaging ticket is created, the ticket is updated, or the end user is inactive for ten minutes, and the transcript is sent.
For example, if an end user interacts with a bot and chooses to live message a team member, the ticket system will create a ticket. At the time of ticket creation from messaging, a Support trigger can be utilized. In the image below, a trigger was created to add a tag to the ticket upon its creation from the channel messaging. See the Support trigger conditions and actions below:
When all of these conditions are met:
- Channel | Is | Messaging
- Ticket | Is | Created
The actions below occur:
- Add | Tags
Another example workflow includes both utilizing the bot builder and Support triggers to route tickets from the messaging channel to a specific group of team members. For more information on how to create this workflow, see the article: Routing messaging tickets using Support triggers. See the Support trigger conditions and actions from the recipe below:
When ALL of these conditions are met:
