Dialog Flow V2 Chat-Bot

Quick Installation Steps

Dialog flow offers its own knowledge base section. It allows us to train own questions and answer pairs that are helpful to the Chat-Bot to handle our visitor queries. To bind “Google’s Dialog Flow v2” with the “Acquire Chat Widget”, we must first pass a few mandatory parameters. To install the “Dialog Flow Chat-Bot” easily follow the simple steps below:

1. If you don’t already have an account with “Dialog Flow” you can visit the following page https://console.dialogflow.com/api-client/#/login and use your Gmail account to create an account and access the Dialog Flow Panel.
