Conversation Builder Dialog Templates
Channel This feature is available for all channels supported by the Conversational Cloud platform.
In this release, Conversation Builder introduces Dialog Templates. A dialog template is a set of resources that:
- Support a conversational flow
- Are defined as a unit for the purpose of import by others
When a bot developer imports a single Dialog Template, the entire unit of working functionality is imported. This includes not only the main dialog that supports the flow, but also all other necessary resources: other dialogs, domains, integrations, and so on.
Once a bot developer imports a Dialog Template into a destination bot, it becomes a normal dialog within the bot, and the dialog functions as if it had been created from scratch. Dialog templates are a great way to:
- Formalize the import process for a dialog
- Ensure that bot developers import all required components supporting a dialog
Bot Analytics- Metrics and trend charts on the main dashboard
This feature is available for all channels supported by the Conversational Cloud platform.
Bot Analytics is introducing organization-level metrics and trend charts on its main dashboard. The organization-level metrics and trend charts are based on the data for all your bots regardless of environment (Demo, Production, and undeployed). Use them to gain a quick understanding of overall performance.
It is important to note:
- If you have bots that are hosted in both the LivePerson cloud and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, you’ll only see the data for the bots within one cloud at a time, namely, the one you’re logged into.
- You can use the date filter to show the data for any 7-day date range within the last 13 months. By default, you are shown the data for the most recent 7 days. If you drill down to a bot dashboard, you can use the date filter to show the data for any 60-day date range within the last 13 months. By default, the date range that’s in use on the main dashboard is applied.
- “Escalations” are now called “Transfers.” As in the previous release, these can be intended (implemented by design) or unintended (performed due to a consumer’s request or an automatic escalation by the system).
