Adding a Box Bot

Kore.ai provides integration for a built-in Box Bot that you can use to display message notifications and execute tasks directly from the Kore.ai application. To use the Box Bot, you just need to add the Bot to your Kore.ai account, and then configure the settings for the Bot, such as authentication to access Box, and the notification messages that you want. This topic describes the Box built-in Bot for Kore.ai. For more information about other Kore.ai Bots, see Adding Bots.
