Autostart a bot without a trigger phrase

Posted on by 109

Hi, as the title indicates. I would like to automatically start the bot if an user click in the bot icon the bot will welcome right away. without the need to expect a Hi, Hello...etc.


I am reading and some people say that modifying the index file but don't feel conformable with that solution.


Any help please?

    Hi @sajarac ,

    The only way to do it is to use the custom canvas and embed inside the footer as an iframe.

    Use this template and change the bot id with your bot id and try to embed it onto your file.



    Unfortunately, this is the only option at the moment the devs are offering to customize the PVA bot.


    I hope it helps.

    Here's the documentation on how to Autostart a Bot.  I don't think there is any way to do it other than editing the Index.html file.
