Learn about Bot Names and Triggers.
- Bot Builder
A Bot Name is usually utilized for internal purposes of identifying bots. It is not something that is visible to the end customer. Bot Names can have spaces, special characters etc and are customizable post Bot creation.
General Best Practice around Bot Names.
Enter a name that’s concise and clear. Make sure abbreviations can be understood, and consider adding a prefix or suffix to indicate the environment (Dev, Prod, etc.) or language (En, Sp, Fr, etc.) if applicable.
Bot Triggers are the words that will activate the Bot flow if it's present in a User message.
By default, when a new bot is created, Jumper will give it a random unique bot trigger. This can however be changed anytime during or after the bot creation.
Avoid using common words (e.g. have, hi, you etc). This will cause the Bot to start more frequently than intended and affect the User experience.
Note: A Bot can have more than 1 trigger
A default trigger is specified for any newly created bots, to change the trigger name according to your preference, follow the steps below.
