Configure Chatbot Svachat
Our Add-on Chatbot (Svachat) is designed to answer your customers’ recurring questions (FAQ’S) by creating a chatbot that interacts with the user and decides based on the user’s queries. For complex questions the chatbot refers the user to a real agent on WhatsApp or directs their access in another way.
Steps to follow:
Visit the section “publish your chatbot” in the Svachat control panel and write down the customer ID.
To configure the integration, go to the WordPress control panel and click Settings > Join.chat
In the SVACHAT tab you will find 5 sections.
- Client ID: Here you should put the ID that you copied from the Svachat control panel.
- Welcome Message: If you check it you will replace the action call defined in the plugin with the welcome message you have set up in Svachat for your chatbot.
- Contact Message: Define a text to contact by WhatsApp. When a chatbot response contains this piece of text the conversation will end and WhatsApp contact button will be shown.
- Error Message: Defines the message that will be displayed in the chat window in case the Svachat chatbot cannot be contacted for any reason.
- Pages: This is a list of IDs separated by commas, representing the pages and sections where the chatbot will be displayed or excluded. If you leave the chatbot empty, it will be displayed throughout the site.
