If you’d like an answer to to send only when specific words are used in the question, use qualifiers.  

Most answers don’t require qualifiers. By adding them, the answer will only send for questions that contain those words, and not for any similar questions without them.

Note: The presence of trigger words in a question doesn't guarantee an answer will send.

To add qualifiers, click on ‘Configure trigger words’ when training Answer bot: 

You can then add qualifiers, either in a row, or separated by commas: 

How to format qualifiers

  • If you’d like the answer to trigger for any of your qualifiers, put commas between them. A comma works as an ‘any’ rule.
  • If you’d like your answer to trigger only when all qualifiers are in the question, don’t use commas. Words separated by spaces works as an ‘all’ rule. 

Once you’ve saved your qualifiers, your answer will only trigger for questions containing those words.

Important: For qualifiers to work, you'll also need to add at least one example question, either from Answer Bot's suggestions or manually: 

You should also ensure that the words in your example questions correspond with the qualifiers you add.
