Flow provides an easy-to-use web widget that can be placed on a website. This allows visitors to the website to directly chat with a chatbot or human agent. Capabilities The web widget supports a wide variety of reply actions as seen in the   messaging capabilities grid. Below is a detailed view of each capability. Text Web widget displays any plain text messages.   Text docs  -  JS template docs   Emojis Web widget displays any unicode emoji sent in text messages. Mobile users can use the emoji keyboard on their device to send them.   Emojis docs  -  JS template docs   Image Web widget displays static images. Image docs  -  JS template docs File Web widget displays files and allows users to download them. File docs  -  JS template docs   Video Web widget displays videos and allows users to play them. Video docs  -  JS template docs   Audio Web widget provides audios and allows users to play them. Audio docs  -  JS template docs   Location Web widget displays Google Maps link of the location. Location messages include longitude and latitude coordinates. Location docs  -  JS template docs   Card Web widget displays cards. Cards must include title and optionally can include subtitle, media, action and buttons. Card docs  -  JS template docs   Carousel Web widget displays carousels that contain cards. Carousel docs  -  JS template docs List Web widget displays lists that contain cards. List docs  -  JS template docs   Buttons Web widget displays buttons. Buttons docs  -  JS template docs   Quick replies Web widget displays quick replies. They are ideal for yes / no type of questions.  Quick replies docs  -  JS template docs Configuration To get started, first add a Web widget integration to your project Choose the project to which you would like to connect WhatsApp using the top left drop-down menu:     Go to the “Integrations” section and press the “+” sign:         Select the Web widget integration Copy and paste the embed code within the HTML of your web page, Here is a simple example showing the embed code: < html > < head > </ head > < body > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]==/flow-webclient-1.1.2.min.js" > </ script > </ body > </ html > Customization There are various customization options for the web widget that can be applied within the dashboard settings Language Specify the language of the web widget. This will update button labels etc to the specific language. Opening message The message displayed in the center when opening the chat widget Tint color Specify the color used for the background of the header and button Widget position Adjust the location on the screen where the button will be displayed Button type Choose the type of button to use. The default is a   message balloon   icon colored by the tint color. You can also change the button appearance by uploading a custom image. This must be a square image with a 256x256 pixel resolution. Disable upload button This option allows you to prevent users to upload and send any files using the upload functionality. Header Change the default title and description that are shown in the header section of the widget Avatar By default we show a bot avatar for each message sent by the chatbot. You can disable this entirely or upload a custom avatar image. Make sure the image is square. Preferred size is 228x228 pixels. Character limits Users are limited by 140 characters for a message intentionally There is an option to disable this behavior and allow text of any length to be send. Note: Having a 140 character limit makes it impossible for users to copy and paste long texts like the content of an e-mail Client nonce This security setting is turned on by default and reduces the risk of another party trying to send messages by using just a threadId. We recommend leaving it on for client side connections. If you make use of the   flowai-js SDK   we'll store and track the client nonce automatically. If you just connect using the   Socket API    you'll need to make sure you store and send the nonce with each HTTP request. Note: This setting prevents sharing a threadId between clients. For use cases where this is required, we you can disable this setting. Embed settings There are additional settings and functionality you can use to customize how the web widget behaves on your website. Pro-active messages You can configure a pro-active message to be displayed using the dashboard settings. If you want more control you can also do this using the following on-page settings: < script type = "text/javascript" > var userName = "Jane" ; __flowai_webclient_proActive = { message: "Hi " + userName + ". Let me know if I can help" , delay: 10 , autoHide: 0 } </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Trigger event Automatically triggering an event is especially useful for showing a   welcome message   or pushing a dialog into a specific flow when a user opens the web widget. An event can be triggered by adding a global javascript variable called   __flowai_webclient_autoTriggerEvent . The following example will automatically trigger the event   SHOW_WELCOME   whenever a user opens the web widget for the first time. Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_autoTriggerEvent = 'SHOW_WELCOME' ; </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Note: Opening events are not considered as a new session.   Read how we measure sessions. Security settings  Khoros Flow has improved the security mechanism for the web widgets by incorporating Socket Security Layer (SSL). SSL helps to validate the one-time token for the customer web requests.  For a secured channel, you need to enable Secure Token validation for the session. Without a valid Token, a session is not established or communication will go not through the secured channel. Configure the Secure Token validation Webhook for the channel, validate and enforce HTTPS protocol to establish the session.  Enable Web Widget Security You need a backend environment to validate One-Time Token (OTT) requests.  Update the widget code to generate the OTT and embed the code on the client-side before the widget gets uploaded. Example //Generate and set up a One-Time Token     window.__flowai_ott = "3587acb9aba75972b8f9280c2187e037d27e99e17a6c6cd27b15c7a45496d91c"     const widget = document.createElement('script')     widget.src="https://flow.dev.aws.lcloud.com/channel-webclient/w/YTl2WTYyeDVPfGNFNk4xMzlwUA==/flow-webclient-1.1.2.min.js"     document.body.append(widget) Follow the below steps to enable the security settings for the Flow:  In a Flow, click Integration from the left panel.  Click + to integrate the web widget.  Click the Customize tab. Select the applicable options for the session security.  Enter the webhook URL in the Secure Token Validation field for token verification.  Enter the generated token in the Authorization token for validating the OTT field.  Click SOFT MODE .  Note: If you enable SOFT MODE, the validated result is accessible via isAuthenticated param. You can provide access to secure flows only. The session will be established even though the token is unauthorized. Click Save . Test the Flow Design You can test the secured session status using the Flow condition trigger.    Attach widget to specific HTML element You can attach the widget to some specific HTML element on your page by setting   __flowai_webclient_embed   to   your_element_id . This allows you to run the widget full screen or embedded within an element on your page. Example < div id = "my-div" > </ div > < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_embed = 'my-div' ; </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Auto send message This works pretty similar like the triggering of an event. The big difference is that a message would be send as if the user did it him or herself. Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_autoMessage = '3 pizza hawaii please' ; </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Auto open Automatically open the web widget when it's loaded on the page by setting   __flowai_webclient_autoOpen   to   true . Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_autoOpen = true ; </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Alternative button We have an option you can use a custom button in HTML to open or close the web widget. Provide a   query selector   that matches the button you want to use to toggle the widget. Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_triggerSelector = '#alternativeButton' ; </ script > < a href = "#" id = "alternativeButton" > Click me! </ a > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > The example above shows a HTML   <a/>   link with an   id   attribute   alternativeButton . The corresponding query selector is   #alternativeButton . You can specify any valid selector with the   window.__flowai_webclient_triggerSelector   option. Hide default button You can hide the default button by setting the   __flowai_webclient_hideButton   to   true Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_hideButton = true ; </ script > Hide download button You can hide the download button by setting the   __flowai_webclient_hideDownloadButton   to   true Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_hideDownloadButton = true ; </ script > Hide header close button You can hide the header close button by setting the   __flowai_webclient_hideHeaderCloseButton   to   true   (works only after   hiding default button) Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_hideHeaderCloseButton = true ; </ script > Hide header You can hide the header itself by setting the   __flowai_webclient_hideHeader   to   true . Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_hideHeader = true ; </ script > Hide opening message You can hide the opening message by setting the   __flowai_webclient_hideOpening   to   true . Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_hideOpening = true ; </ script > Custom font It’s possible to use a custom web font within the web widget. We support   Google Fonts,   Adobe Fonts (Typekit)   and custom hosted fonts. Example of using a Google font: < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_font = { family : 'Crimson Pro' , url : 'https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Crimson+Pro' } </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > You can also use your own hosted web font but providing an absolute URL to a CSS file. Example Using a Custom hosted web font: < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_font = { family : 'Gilroy-Regular' , url : 'https://flow.ai/assets/fonts/widget.css' } </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Example of the loaded CSS file @font-face { font-family : 'Gilroy-Regular' ; src : url ( "https://flow.ai/assets/fonts/31BF8D_6_0.eot" ); src : url ( "https://flow.ai/assets/fonts/31BF8D_6_0.eot?#iefix" ) format ( "embedded-opentype" ), url ( "https://flow.ai/assets/fonts/31BF8D_6_0.woff2" ) format ( "woff2" ), url ( "https://flow.ai/assets/fonts/31BF8D_6_0.woff" ) format ( "woff" ), url ( "https://flow.ai/assets/fonts/31BF8D_6_0.ttf" ) format ( "truetype" ) } Session storage By default the widget stores messages accross browser sessions. By setting   __flowai_webclient_storage   to   session   you can change this behavior. When set to session all messages are removed when a user closes the web browser. Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_storage = 'session' ; </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Sending params The Flow.ai contextual AI engine will find and use entities within flows. Sometimes you might already have certain information available inside the front end the AI could use. You can send this data by setting   __flowai_webclient_params . The format of the params is identical to the way you receive data within   cloud code   or a webhook. Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_params = { departure_city : [{ value : 'Amsterdam' }], destination_city : [{ value : 'NYC' }] } </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Custom originator We call the sender of a message the   originator. By default anyone using the web widget has an anonymous originator. You can however send information that allows you to identify a user. This is useful if you are using the web widget in a secure environment where you have identified the user. Example < script type = "text/javascript" > window .__flowai_webclient_originator = { name : "Jane" , profile : { fullName : 'Jane Doe' , picture : 'https://my-user-images.com/jane.png' , email : 'jane.doe@mycorp.com' }, metadata : { userName : 'janedoe21' , userRole : 'admin' } } </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/Aasdasdada132424234..." > </ script > Event handlers We provide a   __flowai_webclient_events.addListener   method to add custom event handlers. The events that are triggered are similar to the   Flow.ai JavaScript SDK. Reply messages Whenever Flow.ai sends a reply to the web widget you can subscribe to handle these   reply messages. < script type = "text/javascript" > __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'received' , function (reply) { // Called when a reply is received // Do anything with the reply }) </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Sent messages You can also subscribe to   messages   that are send by the user. Whenever Flow.ai has received the message it will trigger a   delivered   handler. < script type = "text/javascript" > __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'send' , function (message) { // Called when a message was sent }) __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'delivered' , function (message) { // Called when a message was delivered }) </ script > < script src = "https://widget.flow.ai/w/[your token]..." > </ script > Other events __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'error' , function ( err ) { // Called on error events }) __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'connected' , function () { // Handle connected event }) __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'reconnecting' , function () { // Handle reconnecting event }) __flowai_webclient_events.addListener( 'disconnected' , function () { // Handle disconnected event }) Other Fullscreen mode Flow.ai allows you to open web widget in a fullscreen mode. Simply add   fullscreen=true   to your web widget's query parameters. For example https://widget.flow.ai/try/Y2IwOGE4OGItOGU2My00MGE0LTkyMDAtYmM1N2Y0ZWIzMzcxfDVmMmZhNDk2LWNjMDQtNDA4Ni04YTA2LWY3MDcxMzYxMzMzYQ==?fullscreen=true Non-rounded bot avatar Flow.ai allows you to remove rounding from bots avatar. Simply add   nonRounded=true   as a query parameter to the URL of your web widget. For example: https://widget.flow.ai/try/Y2IwOGE4OGItOGU2My00MGE0LTkyMDAtYmM1N2Y0ZWIzMzcxfDVmMmZhNDk2LWNjMDQtNDA4Ni04YTA2LWY3MDcxMzYxMzMzYQ==?nonRounded=true

WhatsApp is a channel that is built fundamentally on trust, safety and privacy. One of the reasons why so many people use WhatsApp is because it’s spam and advertisement free. Because WhatsApp wants to keep it that way, it can be a bit strict sometimes when want to create a chatbot for WhatsApp. Even though the end-user won't notice most of these restrictions for WhatsApp Business, the developer has to take them in mind, not just during the concepting stage but also when developing chatbots for WhatsApp Business. That's why these docs can be very useful for developing your bot for WhatsApp. We will show you the capabilities for WhatsApp chatbots, how you should configure it and how you can test your WhatsApp bot. Capabilities WhatsApp supports a wide arrange of reply actions as seen in the   messaging capabilities grid. Below is a detailed view of each capability. Text WhatsApp displays any plain text messages. Text docs -  JS template docs   Emojis WhatsApp displays any unicode emoji sent in text messages. Mobile users can use the emoji keyboard on their device to send them. Emojis docs  -  JS template docs   Image WhatsApp displays static images. Image docs -  JS template docs   Video WhatsApp displays videos and allows users to play them. Video docs -  JS template docs     Audio   Whatsapp provides audios and allows users to play them. Audio docs -  JS template docs   Location WhatsApp displays Google Maps link of the location. Location messages include longitude and latitude coordinates. Location docs  -  JS template docs   Templated message   WhatsApp provides a templated message which allows you to send messages to subscribers beyond 24 hours or to users who have never contacted your phone number.   Configuration Flow.ai provides an official WhatsApp Business API integration that connects a project to WhatsApp. WhatsApp has a strict approval process for businesses, but   we've made it super easy to   start testing a chatbot on WhatsApp   in minutes. Overview Flow.ai connects through a WhatsApp Business Service Provider (WBSP) and is a Facebook approved ISV. In order to connect with WhatsApp you'll need to reach out to our   sales    or   support    team. What you'll need Make sure your business and use case complies with the   WhatsApp Business API policy   and   WhatsApp Commerce Policy. After contacting us for connecting with a custom WhatsApp phone number you will need to provide additional information and complete the validation process. Facebook Business Manager ID First, you will need a Facebook Business Manager ID to initiate a request authorising Flow.ai to message on your behalf. Read the   official Facebook documentation   for details on how to get this info. WhatsApp Number Secondly, you will need a phone number that is reachable (phone or texting) and not yet used for WhatsApp. If you need more information regarding phone numbers. Once you have this information, please   contact us    and we’ll submit your request to WhatsApp. Flow.ai Account Perhaps a little bit obvious, but in order to develop, test and launch your WhatsApp chatbot, you'll need a Flow.ai account.   Sign up    and get started with your WhatsApp Business bot right away! Testing When building a chatbot for WhatsApp, we recommend testing your bot live on WhatsApp. This can be done in a couple of minutes. The benefit of testing your bot within WhatsApp itself instead of in our Try it out preview mode is that you get a more realistic representation of how your bot will look in WhatsApp. This is especially useful when you use   Rich UI Elements, since not all of them will work on WhatsApp due to the current   limitations. We will now give you step-by-step instructions on how to test your WhatsApp chatbot. On the bottom of the page, we will also show you a video tutorial for even more clarity. Choose the project to which you would like to connect WhatsApp using the top left drop-down menu:   Go to the “Integrations” section and press the “+” sign:   Select the WhatsApp integration Add a testing phone number in the following format:   +31638678616   When you want to test WhatsApp you can use the preview button in the top bar. This will open the Flow.ai test account. You are able to add up to 10 test phone numbers. If you want to test different projects connected to WhatsApp, simply re-add your phone number to the different projects. WhatsApp will only reply to a single project.     FAQ WhatsApp provides an official   WhatsApp FAQ.  For other questions, feel free to join our   Slack Support Channel.

If you are new to the Messenger platform, in search of advanced features like the Send to Messenger button, or ready to deploy your Messenger bot to the public, these docs are for you! Capabilities Facebook Messenger supports a wide variety of reply actions as seen in the   messaging capabilities grid. Below is a detailed view of each capability.   Text Messenger displays any plain text messages. Text docs-  JS template docs   Emojis Messenger displays any unicode emoji sent in text messages. Mobile users can use the emoji keyboard on their device to send them. Emojis docs  -  JS template docs   Image Messenger displays static images.   Image docs  -  JS template docs   File  Messenger displays files and allows users to download them.   File docs  -  JS template docs   Video Messenger displays videos and allows users to play them. Video docs -  JS template docs   Audio Messenger provides audios and allows users to play them. Audio docs-  JS template docs   Location Messenger displays Google Maps link of the location. Location messages include longitude and latitude coordinates. Location docs -  JS template docs   Card Messenger displays cards. Cards must include title and optionally can include subtitle, media, action and buttons.  Card docs  -  JS template docs   Carousel Messenger displays carousels that contain cards. Carousel docs  -  JS template docs   Buttons Messenger displays buttons. Buttons docs  -  JS template docs   Quick replies Messenger displays quick replies. They are ideal for yes / no type of questions. Max 10 Quick replies. Quick replies docs  -  JS template docs   OTNR Messenger provides one-time notification which allows you to send messages to subscribers beyond 24 hours as long as they give you explicit permission.   Configuration Flow provides a one-click installation for Facebook Messenger What you'll need Facebook Page: A Facebook Page will be used as the identity of your project or bot. When people interact with your solution, they will see the Page name and the Page profile picture. Permissions: Your user account needs to have the proper page permissions to connect Flow to the intended Facebook page. Connecting     Add a new Messenger integration within the Flow dashboard.  Press the + button and choose Messenger from the messaging section After adding, press the "Login with Facebook" button Choose all the permissions you want to give Flow to connect with any Facebook pages Choose the facebook page you wish to connect with and press save Note: You connect Facebook to Flow in general and not a single Flow project. If you want to connect another project to a Facebook page, make sure you do not deselect a Page currently connected. Testing After the connection is complete, use the preview button (dropdown) in the top. This will open your connected Facebook Messenger Page. Customization Messenger provides detailed customization such as the   welcome screen and a   persistent menu.   Within the customization screen you can: Add a welcome text for different languages and regions Configure a   get started button Whitelist domain URLs Within the   persistent menu   tab you can configure a persistent menu for one or more languages.   Discovery & Re-engagement Facebook provides   additional ways to opt-in to your bot. We've added an easy way to handle these opt-ins using events. Messenger m.me links By creating   m.me links   you can easily redirect users and trigger a specific flow. Simply create a link in the format   http://m.me/<PAGE_NAME>?ref=<EVENT_NAME> . Here is an example that will trigger a flow that has an event named   OPTIN_MESSENGER . http: //m.me/awesomecorp?ref=OPTIN_MESSENGER Within the Flow design app you simply add an   event trigger   with the same name.   Requirements In order to use the   ref   your app needs to comply with a couple of requirements: Your Messenger app must have a   get started button   set to trigger events The Page the Messenger app is connected to must be published to receive the referral parameter for all users, except those that have the developer, tester, or admin role Use cases Some use cases for m.me links are: Sending users directly into a sales flow or marketing campaign Using QR codes based on the m.me link that redirect users into a pickup service flow Handing off Facebook users that are communicating on a public Facebook page and redirecting them into a private channel Send to Messenger plugin The triggering of events also works with   Send to Messenger plugins. Simply provide the event name to trigger with the   data-ref   option. Ads Even Facebooks Ads can be used the same way as buttons and links. Using attribution you'll need to specify the event name. Example: { "source" : "ADS" , "type" : "OPEN_THREAD" , "ad_id" : "6045246247433" , "ref" : "OPTIN_MESSENGER" // Only included if specified in "URL Params" in the Ad as "ref=OPTIN_MESSENGER" } Analytics Facebook Analytics allows you to understand and optimize your complete customer journey across mobile, web, bots, offline, and more. Flow provides custom app events for analytics. Whenever you apply a tag within your flow (that confirms to Facebook guidelines), Flow will automatically apply this tag as a custom app event. This opens up use cases like funnel optimization, re-targeting and opt-in campaigns. Webviews Flow supports   Messenger webviews   using buttons. You can control the use of Messenger extensions by adding query parameters to your webview url. The following example would open a webview in compact height supporting the Messenger extensions SDK. https: //www.mywebview.com/ ?extensions= true &height=compact Query param Description Example extensions Add   extensions=true   to indicate your web view supports the Messenger Extensions SDK https://mywebview.com/?extensions=true height Specify the webview height ratio. Valid values are:   compact ,   tall ,   full . https://mywebview.com/?height=compact share Set to hide to disable the share button in the Webview (for sensitive info). This does not affect any shares initiated by the developer using Extensions. https://mywebview.com/?share=hide fallback The URL to use on clients that don't support Messenger Extensions. If this is not defined, the url will be used as the fallback. It may only be specified if extensions is true. https://mywebview.com/?fallback=https%3A%2F%2Ffallbackurl.com&extensions=true Custom Facebook App The preferred way is to make use of the "connect to Facebook" button to connect your Facebook page with Flow.  Flow supports connecting with a custom Facebook Messenger App. Requirements Facebook Developer account. You can create a one at the   Facebook Developer website. Facebook App: The Facebook App contains the settings for your Messenger Platform integration. This is where you will setup your webhook, retrieve your page access token, and submit your app for approval. Facebook Page: A Facebook Page will be used as the identity of your bot. When people chat with your bot, they will see the Page name and the Page profile picture. Add integration Login to the Flow.  Open the   integrations   section and add a new Messenger channel Connect Facebook Page to Messenger Login at the   Facebook Developer website Choose at   My Apps   the option   Create new App Choose   basic setup Decide what to name your app, add a contact email and choose a category (like   Apps for pages) When the app is created select   Add Product Choose   Messenger   and   Get started Select your Facebook page you want to connect Select the Page Access Token and copy the Page Access Token Switch to the Flow dashboard and   paste the Page Access Token Press the   verify   button and press   save Configure webhooks Go back to the   Facebook Developer website Choose your app under   My Apps Choose   Messenger Choose   Setup webhooks   under the item called   Webhooks Switch back to the Flow dashboard Copy and paste the   Callback url   from Flow to the developer platform Copy and paste the   Verify token   from Flow to the developer platform Check the following options:   messages ,   message_echoes ,   messaging_postbacks   messaging_optins   en   message_deliveries Press   Verify and save Testing After adding Messenger you can test your Messenger integration straight away. Only admins can test your bot though, so if you want other people interact with your bot you'll need to add them as a tester. If you want the world to use your Messenger app, you'll need to publish it. Publishing When you want to enable your bot for the world to interact with you'll need to complete the review process.
