Use trigger phrase as flow input

Posted on by 18

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to put the used bot trigger phrase in a variable and send that as input variable to a flow ?

Currently i have a trigger phrase that calls the bot. The bot asks a question and the answer to the question is the flow input.

I'd like to skip the question step and just have several trigger phrases that are input to the flow.

 

Is this possible ? And if so, how ? 

 

thx
Bart

    Hi,

    Is this going to be solved in a better way?

    That workaround is actually the way i'd recommend doing it. Another option is to have no triggers, and just use the fallback method as outlined in this QnAmaker tutorial:

    Apparently this is not (yet) supported. Several idea items on this topic are available.

     

    I now worked around it by creating several topics that point to the same flow, just with different input.
