Configuring and Editing Bot Builder Settings
howdy chatbot fans and welcome back in this lecture, we're gonna talk about configuring your bot settings and if you navigate inside the bot builders section of the main menu and you go over to settings, you have a few different simple things that you could set up. So first of all, you need to name your bot, very straightforward again, this is not the name of a specific bot workflow. So if you're building a chat blast or a messenger add, that's not the name of this bot, that would go under the page name, this is just the overall body, so it's usually gonna be your company name, chatbots status. You can toggle it off active or off again. You were able to do this from the main menu. Could do that here as well and there are some interesting things with that response settings by default mobile monkey has it set up to respond to unanswered questions with the default page, that's his answer over here. You could ignore unanswered questions, which means if somebody type something in that the b...
ody doesn't understand, it just ignores. It doesn't say anything at all. That's kind of annoying because people are expecting some sort of response at least to let them know that somebody could be with them shortly. So the third option is prevent users from typing freeform messages to your page. Now while you're getting started with building bots and you're building your first few bots. I actually suggest that you you have this item selected. I think it will help avoid a lot of potential frustration and conflicts that could arise with people typing things in not realizing that they should tap or click a response, which might be how a certain widget in your body is programmed. And there are obviously ways to build your bots to accomplish and to work through all of these types of situations no matter what a person types in. But in the beginning I would recommend um selecting this option. It'll make the customer experience simpler and it will also alleviate some complexities when you're first getting started with understanding how boats work. And if you run some messenger ads like this, you'll actually get a lot of good data and especially if you're running a poll or a survey or trying to collect emails or whatever it may be if your list building, this is the best way to go. So I'm gonna select, I'm going to select over here, prevent users from typing freeform messages to your page. If you guys are following along with me on this page, it could be that this is great out. You're not able to select this third option and that's because you need to have at least one main menu item set up. So if you remember we go back to our pages and you go to the welcome page, default page, main menu. I have a main menu over here for this sofa mania test bot. You might not have had a main menu link set up already and in order to select the setting, you have to have at least one main menu link chat bot quick messages, these will be overridden by your Q and A's and by other things and by your default page, so you don't have to really focus on this too much but message to send when the user does not pick it provided response um unsubscribed text is if a person chooses to unsubscribe from automatic chat bot messages um this would be the the text that's sent to them over there and then again, english language over here, we have it set to english, I'm assuming that's gonna be the language for most of you, but there are all these different languages that you could choose from to set up your chat bot in and we're gonna keep it for english, so that's basically your chatbots settings. It's pretty simple, it's pretty straightforward. A lot of thought was went into simplifying this as much as possible. Um I'm sure there will be more settings and more features added in the future and when that happens will obviously update the course to describe what those features and functions are and how you can take advantage of them in your own bots, but that's chatbots settings. In the next lecture, we're gonna go and dive back into the pages and start talking about each one of these widgets individually because this is really the meat and potatoes of this course. When we start building out our actual chatbot funnels after we understand how we use each one of these widgets. So I look forward to seeing you guys very soon in the next lecture.
