Navigating BOT trainer

Before building your chatbot you will need to know the basics navigating through the platform.

In the main menu you will find the workflow section. 

This is where the workflows are built-created. The canvas is now split in to 3 parts.

To the left you will see a list of all your current workflows.

To the right of screen you have the toolbox of different tools that can be used when building workflows.  

In this view you can add new workflows to your bot by clicking the plus  button. 

This will prompt a dialogue-box to appear and where you name your new workflow.

Intents are the foundation of the chatbot. An intent could be explained as a category which the bot is going to understand in a free text query. An intent should represent the intention of the end user.

Filter – This lets you search for intents. This comes in handy when your model grows. A model can have hundreds of intents and the filter-textbox makes it easy to find what you are looking for.
