Creating and managing your bots

On the Bots page, you can create an unlimited amount of new bots and manage the ones you have. These code-free, intelligent bots to engage and qualify visitors on your website. 

Ask your visitors questions, provide them with messages, and route them through the conversation in a way personalized for them. At the right time, you can offer qualified visitors calls to action so they can engage with you further. 

Create a bot

After you've identified your Audiences, you should create one or more bots those Audiences should engage with.

From scratch

When you create your bot from scratch, you start with a blank conversation and build all interactions and routing.

From a template

When you choose a template for your bot, you start with pre-built interactions and routing for a specific scenario. You can then tweak it according to your preferences, to fit your organization. 

Duplicate a bot

Duplicating a bot is helpful if the bot you wish to create is similar to another bot on your website. Because all interactions and routing are duplicated for the new bot, this can save time configuring it.

Publishing your bot

In the conversation builder, once you're happy with your interactions and routing, you can publish your bot by toggling it on.
