A more intelligent and customizable chatbot
Aug 15, 2019 6:45 PM
I've had the Hubspot chatbot going for a few months and I've noticed a trend. When users engage the chatbot, 70-80% of them will just blurt the issue they're having without actually reading the prompts/questions of the chatbot.
This causes frustration because the chatbot simply doesn't understand the user input and repeats the same message over and over again (there should be a failover step). I have a few examples of customers actually yelling at the chatbot, which is mildly funny but more importantly a bad experience.
I've tried to create a chatbot in which the KB lookup is done first, then prompts for further information if the answer is not what the user needed. However, Hubspot's current configuration forces the first step of the chatbot to be user input - name, email, etc.
We need more flexibility to create a smarter and more customized chatbot.
