All Conversation Builder bots are based on templates.

The Custom Bot template is the best choice if you want to create a completely custom bot from scratch.

For other, more common use cases, Conversation Builder has a set of predefined, industry vertical templates that enable rapid adoption of automation.

Each conversational template consists of the following capabilities:

  • Intents associated with the use case

  • Conversational dialogs with appropriate interactions for the respective channels or end points (Web, Apple Business Chat, SMS, etc.)

  • API integrations with industry-leading services (e.g., Shopify in Retail) and brand-specific services
