Bot Tasks – Add or modify tasks. This bot is configured with 2 dialog tasks and 1 actions task. You can also add dialog tasks, information tasks, knowledge tasks, and configure flows. Know more

Natural Language – Review and optimize natural language processing and machine language understanding of your bot. Know more.

Channels – Enable this bot for one or more communication channels. This bot is enabled for the Kore channel by default. Know more.

Settings – Edit or define bot settings, such as name, icon, and other settings. Know more.

Publishing – You can publish alert, action, or dialog tasks for Standard Bots for an enterprise or to the Bot Store. For more information, see Publishing Tasks.

Analyze – You can review the full conversation between the Bots Platform and a user using Chat History. For more detail, you can review and analyze both successful, and unsuccessful interactions between a Bot and a user in the Chat Logs section. If necessary, based on the interaction, you can initiate Bot training to better handle future communication transactions. For more information, see Analyzing Your Bot.
