This is what makes Botsify Plugins different from other platforms out there. Before you start let us tell you where the plugins can be used and in what possible conditions. Although we give just a gist of it, there are unlimited possibilities.
- Your data is not shared with any third party like Zapier or IFFTT. So called integrations for your chatbot makes it hard for you to keep your data secure and not shared with other parties.
- Your data is directly used by the chatbot without even us being utilizing that for any purpose.
Where the plugin can be used?
One of the core features of Botsify is to keep the UI Uniform and easy to use throughout the platform, you use the plugin at following places and believe me or not, the UI and the complete process is exactly the same between all these places.
1- You can use the plugin in Get Started button or Default response.
This case is particularly important when you want to take the data from your website or API and show the content. Let’s say you want to send user things other people like, when the bot fails to responds to the user’s question. What an incredible use case this is!
2- You can use the plugin in Menu Item
The chatbot menu is important for user to pick up the conversation from middle, to do most frequent things easily. And that’s why we make it possible for you to call you API from the menu item actions. Such as “Recommend me popular stuff” menu item might make an API call and do the useful stuff.
3- You can use the plugin in Template buttons
Templates is what makes today’s chatbots different from conventional ones, it makes it easy for user to understand the purpose via images or videos, or sometimes even just with text and take a particular action based on it. You can integrate your payment API or checkout API with buttons in your templates as well.
4- You can use the plugin in Stories
Stories are the heart of Botsify, it’s what make us big and useful. You can create a particular use case such as “Suggesting user content based on his query”. Such as if user types “shoes” you would like to show him shoes from your e-commerce store.
5- You can use the plugin in Schedule Messages
What if you want to send users content everyday based on their attributes recorded in your database already? Such as someone likes “Donald Trump” wouldn’t you want to deliver him the content about “Donald Trump” daily to engage with the user again and again?
Now that you understand the use of Plugins in Botisfy we won’t waste much time, let’s get started and see how can you use RSS Plugin to integrate with Botsify.
