Conversation Starters

Buttons that let you initiate agent-powered tasks in one click

What are Conversation Starters?

Conversation Starters are buttons that appear when starting a conversation with an AI Agent. Each button has a short, intuitive description, making it easy for users to understand what it does.

How do they work?

  • User-Friendly Buttons: Displayed at the beginning of an interaction with the AI Agent, providing clear and concise descriptions.

  • Detailed Prompts: Behind each button is a detailed prompt for a specific task, which the AI Agent will receive and act upon.

When should you use them?

Conversation Starters are ideal for your organization's frequently recurring use cases, allowing users to initiate tasks quickly without needing to type out their requests. This feature ensures that users can start tasks efficiently, enhancing their overall experience with the AI Agent.

How to create conversation starters?

Where to start:

Click "Add Starter"

On the right-hand panel, you will see all existing conversation starters for this Agent.

Add Button Text and Prompt

Button Text is the text that will appear on the button. This is what your users will see.

Tip: Keep it short and intuitive, so that your users will immediately understand what it does.

Prompt is the instructions that will be sent to the AI Agent when this button is pressed. Your users will not see this.

Tip: Be as clear as possible. If there are any steps or details that you want the Agent to adhere to each time it performs this task, state them here clearly.
