But before following up the above steps to create your own Chatbot, let’s first go with the default intents defined by the Dialogflow, to understand how exactly Chatbot works.

Start with default Intents

  • Here the phrase “Default Welcome Intent”, is the intent name.
  • Under this, you will see an option for “Training Phrases”, which receives the user’s questions as input that a user wants to ask from Chatbot.

  • Here, you will see the text field “Add user expression”, in this field, users write similar examples of their questions, and what they want to ask!  As many as questions you add, that many “Training Phrases” will be able to train the Chatbot.

  • Now, in the option of “Responses”, you will see a text field, “Enter a text response variant”, in this field, write the similar responses you want to get from the Chatbot in return for your intents or questions.

Now, let’s get back to the “Training Phrases” of the “Default Welcome Intent”.

  • In this field, you will some pre-defined “user expressions” that have already been added, which are used to initiate the chat with a Chatbot.

  • Down below, in the “Response” field, you will see some pre-defined “text response variants” that have already been added, which are used to respond to a user in exchange for questions asked by Chatbot.

Now, in the right hand, you will see a text field option of “Try it now” with a mike icon too. This is the field where you as a user can write your question and pass it as input to ask from the Chatbot.

  • Let’s say you write “hi there” in one of the responses from the “Training Phrases” in the field of “Try it now”.

  • Now the Chatbot will find which “intent” matches the user’s query, and then from the “Responses” tab of that “Intent” a default “text response variant” will be selected for the Chatbot to respond or return to the user.

This is the simple procedure to train the Chatbot to return your query’s response.

The “Training Phrases” are used as input to the Chatbot to train what a user can ask, whereas the “Responses” are used as the answer to the user’s input, a Chatbot will respond.

Now let’s take a look at the next intent i.e., “Default Fallback Intent

  • A Chatbot will return the response from the “Default Fallback Intent” if only the user’s query does not match with any of the intents.

  • You ask the Chatbot “I need Help!!!!!”, now if this exact query does not match any of the Intents, then by default the Chatbot will return a response from “Default Fallback Intent”.

  • The “Default Fallback Intent” is created for the case if the user’s query does not match with any of the intents, then by default, the Chatbot will return a response from this intent.
