Setting a schedule for chatbot

Posted on by

Hello! I have searched through the forum and haven't found an answer to my question, so apologies in advance if I missed a solution. I would like to use a chatbot to work with customers after hours when we do not have live staff available to answer questions. We use a different live chat service during business hours.


Is there a way to set a day/time schedule for the chatbot? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide!

    Hi @edehne ,


    It's a great idea!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible yet to use it on the PVA bots. But you can raise your idea here: 


    You can do a workaround by calling the Power Automate workflow using the Greeting Topic and return a validation if the current date-time is after work hours:
