A Dialogflow intent represents the user’s “intention” – what they want to know, or what they want to do etc.
“Turn on the light”
“What is the price of widget X?”
“What is my account balance?”
Inside your Dialogflow console, you will see a list of intents.
When you click into one of the intents, you can see a whole bunch of “fields” which define the intent.
If you need to add a lot of intents into your Dialogflow ES bot in one click, check out the bulk upload tool.
