To ease the process of Bot Testing, we made it easier to start the bot conversation from any gambit that you want, by simply giving the gid of that gambit as the value of _startgid URL param in the URL. gids are the numbers that you see in square brackets next to the gambit name e.g. [3]

So going to this URL: https://hellotars.com/convBot/demos/dominos/?_startgid=5
will start the conversation by How many pizza you want instead of first asking for the
pizza itself.

NOTE: When you start from any gambit in between, the conversation does not have data from any previous gambits. So any Data Referencing from a earlier gambit won't be visible.


May 22nd, 2017
A new data scope is added usys. Using this you can access system level data in a conversation for Display, API calls etc..

{{usys.convid}} // This is the unique id of your bot. The same id that you see in the URL
{{usys.deviceType}} // This tells you if the user is on Desktop, Mobile (iPhone) etc..
{{usys.userAgent}} // This is just the browser user agent string
{{usys.tempDocid}} // This id identifies an on-going conversation between different gambit. This gets updated on every page refresh

This Data scope {{usys}} is currently available only in web based bots.
