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

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.
This bot helps the user make a decision by having them answer a series of Yes/No questions.
The checklist bot walks the user through a list of items in a checklist.
The interactive learning bot helps you teach concepts to your users/students by asking them a series of questions and assessing their knowledge of the material.

Free: Dialogflow ES Crash course for non-programmers I recently changed the name of my website from Mining Business Data to BotFlo. To help spread the word, and to hopefully get people to bookmark my website, I am making a set of my training courses free for a few weeks. Learn more
"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. - Kathleen R Cofounder, gathrHealth
