Dialogflow Messenger Example Bots

On this page, I describe some example bots you can build using the Dialogflow Messenger integration.

Simple FAQ chatbot

This is the canonical example of a chatbot. And the most common use case for Dialogflow – helping people find answers to questions which are posed in natural language.

I have created an FAQ chatbot based on the articles on this website. It is a very simple FAQ bot – the article titles are the training phrases, and the response is a link to the article. That’s it.

You can interact with the live bot here.

I used my BotFlo app to create the website chatbot.

Dialogflow provides a way to import an FAQ bot using the agent ZIP file import feature.

This means it is possible to create a script which will allows you to automatically turn a CSV file of intent definitions into an FAQ chatbot. In other words, you can bulk upload Dialogflow intents using my BotFlo app.

The website chatbot I have created is a specific application of this process. So instead of having to manually type out an intent for each article on your website, you can just:

Selection Triggers the Next Intent

This bot provides a tour of the Dialogflow Messenger rich responses and is a good example of a bot where the user selects an option, which in turn triggers (or fires) the next intent.

The recently released Zoho SalesIQ v2 allows non-programmers to build chatbots using an easy-to-use code less bot builder. What is really unique about Zoho SalesIQ is the fact that you can also integrate AI into their code less bot builder. In my Zoho SalesIQ chatbots course, I explain how to use Zoho SalesIQ to add a chatbot to your website.

"The magic key I needed as a non-programmer"

The custom payload generator was the magic key I needed (as a non-programmer) to build a good demo with rich responses in DialogFlow Messenger. I've only used it for 30 minutes and am thrilled. I've spent hours trying to figure out some of the intricacies of DialogFlow on my own. Over and over, I kept coming back to Aravind's tutorials available on-line. I trust the other functionalities I learn to use in the app will save me additional time and heartburn.
