Is it possible to parse user input combining numbers, percentages and custom entity values in one phrase?

Posted on by

Hi all, I'm trying to figure out how to solve something like this: 

 

A user inputs a request combining numbers, custom entity values and percentages. I need to return him a budget estimate. 

 

User query may look like this: "I need a budget estimate for a month long project using 10% of resource 1, resource 2 full time and 50% of resource 3". 

 

I understand how to interpret individual parts of such a query, but not sure how to parse the whole phrase. Doing the parts individually kind of defeats the purpose of using a bot, it's just quicker to fill out a form in Power Apps. 

 

Thanks!

    Hello @vangrieg 

    I don't think it's possible. Maybe you could parse all the information in a Power Automate flow (e.g: Solved: Parsing a string - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)) and calling it from a fallback topic: Use a system fallback topic - Power Virtual Agents | Microsoft Docs

     

    Hope it helps!
