Resolution Bot (formerly Answer Bot) instantly answers your customers’ common questions, so your team can focus on conversations where a human touch is needed.

You can train Resolution Bot to answer any common question a customer asks at the start of a new conversation. Resolution Bot closes the conversation when successful - so it never reaches your team.

Resolution Bot can also suggest answers as your customers type in the Messenger, before they send a message. This lets them find their own solution faster, and saves your support team more time:

By instantly answering common queries, Resolution Bot will resolve 33% of your customers’ common questions (on average), create a better customer experience, and save your team hours each week. You’ll see Resolution Bot’s immediate impact in the Resolution Bot report

Tip: You can start creating answers before you start a trial. To set an answer live, you’ll need to start your trial.

Create answers to your common questions

Resolution Bot makes it easy to identify your customers’ common questions, by surfacing them for you. Just click any common question to create an answer:

Train Resolution Bot to recognize questions

Your customers will ask the same question in different ways. When creating an answer, you should train Resolution Bot to recognize several variations of the question, so it answers more customers:

You can also train Resolution Bot to recognize questions your customers haven’t yet asked, by manually adding example questions: 

Pro tip: If you’re releasing a new feature and predict that customers will have questions, you should manually add example questions to train Resolution Bot.

Create an engaging answer

The easiest way to compose your answer, is to copy it from one of the example conversations you used to train Resolution Bot:

To create an engaging answer, you can use text, emojis, images, GIFs, attributes and chat bubbles:

You can also give customers powerful follow-up actions with apps, such as sharing an article or allowing them to request a demo:

Set your answer live

Once you set an answer live, Resolution Bot will start answering common questions

Tip: Resolution Bot triggers when a customer asks a matching question at the start of a new conversation. Resolution Bot can also trigger when customers complete a Custom Bot path, or reply to an ongoing message.

If a customer clicks ‘That helped’, or if they don’t reply within three minutes, Resolution Bot will close the conversation. If they’d like to see another answer, they can click ‘Show me more’:

Note: Resolution Bot will only show the ‘Show me more’ option if you’ve created multiple answers that relate to the customer’s question.

If they’d like to chat to your team, they can choose ‘Wait for the team’ or reply to the conversation: 

Resolution Bot will then leave the conversation open, so your team can follow up.

If you’ve enabled the dedicated bot inbox and a customer replies or clicks “Wait for the team”, the conversation will then be routed according to your assignment rules so the right teammate can help out. 👌
