An intent is a representation of what user wants to accomplish. During intent creation we could add different examples of what people would say to convey their intent. These examples would then be processed by the catalyst platform using sophisticated Artificial Intelligence techniques to make the bot understand and identify right user intent.
Intent is accessible from Bot Studio -> My Conversations -> Intents tab. Here user can create, modify and delete intent.
Choose an intent name that is easily identified and can be reused while creating different conversations. The same intent can be consumed from multiple conversations.
Example: insurance-car or car-insurance
Let's take an example where the user wants to insure his/her car. User can express his/her intent of buying an insurance through a variation of sentences.
These are just a few examples. There could be multiple variations that a user can use to communicate and express his/her willingness to buy a motor insurance.
Tip: Adding more user examples helps the AmplifyReach chat bot to easily identify the user intent and assist the customer accordingly.
Tip: User examples should be complete english statement. Example: "I am interested in car insurance" and not "car insurance".
User examples can be easily moved between intents. Just select the user examples and click "Move" or "Delete" button to perform the desired action.
Enter the name of the intent in the Search field and click on the search icon.
Intents can be sorted by different attributes like Date, Name, Last used etc.
|Name||Intent are sorted by name in descending order|
|Date||Intent are sorted by date in descending order|
|Name (Ascending)||Intent are sorted by name in ascending order|
|Date (Ascending)||Intent are sorted by date in ascending order|
|Last Used||Intent are sorted by the last usage of the entity in any conversations|
Intent can be modified by clicking on the Intent name or by clicking on the Modify button against the intent name
Intent can be deleted by clicking on the delete button
Warning: User is able to delete an intent only if it is not getting consumed by any conversation. To delete an intent, user must remove it from the conversations where it is being used and then perform the delete action.
