Send a link to a standalone bot

Standalone chatbots are the easiest way to get started with ChatOnce. You can build one in a few minutes and then share it using a standalone link. They're great to use as campaign landing pages and there's no need to update your website.

Simply create a new standalone bot and copy the link. 

  1. In OnceHub, go to Setup -> ChatOnce.
  2. Click on the Create bot button and select Standalone bot.

Create the bot as you prefer, either from scratch or using a template. 

If an existing standalone bot is close to what you're wanting, you can duplicate that one instead by clicking the three-dot menu by that bot and selecting Duplicate.

When you've added the interactions you want and routed them, you can design the bot as you like on the Configure tab. You have two design choices: 

Classic: Your bot appears centered on the page. You can define:

  • Header logo
  • Background color
  • Background image
  • Bot icon
  • Bot color
  • Bot name 

Modern: Your bot appears on the left of the page. On the right of the page you can add an image (like a logo or headshot), title, and additional text. You can also customize all the design properties included in the Classic view.

Once you've designed the standalone bot to your organization's preferences, navigate to the Publish tab. You'll find a standalone bot link you can copy. Alternatively, go to the Share icon in the top right of your screen and select Share standalone chatbot link.

That's it! Send this link to whomever you wish, or use it in an ad or email campaign.
