July 2017:

June 2017:

  1. We added an option to Preview your Bot, before you decided to Deploy it to production. Using this you can now test out the bot without having to switch between the browser tabs and without affect the Live Production Bot that is currently being used.

We made this update so that you can make incremental changes in your Bot and test it out in the Bot Preview. And once you are happy with the final result, just click on the new and improved Deploy Bot button, right next to it, to push all the changes to Live Production, all in one go. Also the Bot Preview looks way more cooler. Check it out:

  1. =============================================================
  2. Pushed a new set of icons for Send Arrow, Skip Button and Done Button. They are part of the font-awesome family, they have universal appeal among different languages and look a lot better.
  3. Paginated the ConvBots on the homepage of the Dashboard, so that it shows only 19 Convbots at a time. This makes viewing all your bots easy and more accessible.


May 2017:

  1. Cards Input UI Added in the Builder
  2. Added support for 18 Languages in the Convbot Configure section
  3. Facebook Messenger Integration Beta Release
  4. Branching now possible in Star Ratings. Now you can move to different gambits, based on the star rating given by the user. (Perfect for taking a more structured Feedback and Survey)
  5. Going Forward, all the data submissions (Full or Partial) that happens on the same browser on which the bot was built will be Marked as TEST Submissions. They are properly highlighted in the Check Data section to avoid confusion between test and live submissions.
  6. You can now put an External link (Web URL) on any Button option in the Buttons input type. Check the External link icon next to a Button option.
