Bot templates
When you create a new bot on the Chatlayer platform, you have two options to get started:
  1. 1.
    Build a bot from scratch
  2. 2.
    Load a bot template and customise it for your business
If you build a bot from scratch, this page can help you get started.
Starting from a template is an easy way to get your bot up and running in very little time. Templates are fully functional bots for a specific use case or set of use cases that you can customise to fit your own business' brand and needs.

Using a template

Templates are bots or flows that were built by our team. Some templates are fully fleshed out bots consisting of multiple flows. These templates can handle the most common use cases for a specific industry, like the banking template. They're a great way to get started on your own bot, or to learn more about how certain things can be built on our platform!
Other templates consist of a single flow that only deals with a single use case or they can consist of a single flow. These can help you quickly add a specific use case or functionality to an existing bot.
An overview of the templates on Chatlayer
To create a new bot from a template, simply go to the My bots section in Chatlayer and select a template under the Build a new bot section and then click Create.
Once the template has been loaded make sure to update the NLP by clicking the button in the top right corner.
Most templates will work right out of the box after you load them, though in some cases you will need to make some small modifications to make it work, for example when an integration is used. You can find full guidelines on how to set up and customise each template in the following pages.
👉🏻 We are constantly building new templates, covering different industries and use cases. Would you like a specific template? Let us know!

Bot style

Always keep in mind that your chatbot should reflect your business’ specific image and brand. The default dialog texts in our templates are designed to be general and neutral. This means they might not be suitable for your bot because they sound either too formal or casual, or are simply not specific enough. We strongly suggest you customise the dialog texts as much as possible, so your bot’s personality matches the tone your users expect from your business
