Floatchat- User Guid

API Triggers

  1. Introduction: #

With Forward integrations, you can create automation flows in your chatbot that can be triggered by an API, without the need for end-users to interact directly with the chatbot. This allows you to collect information from clients through a form and pass it to the API via parameters. You can then use this input to perform specific functions and achieve your desired goals.

  1. Availability: #

Forward integrations are available in our Enterprise plans, subject to entitlement. For assistance, please contact info@    floatchat      .


  1. Working Mechanism: #

When a user submits information through a form and the API is triggered, the user inputs are passed as attributes via parameters. The automation flow corresponding to the API is executed based on these inputs. For example, you can generate and store information in Salesforce and send out emails based on the user’s category.

4.2 Creation of the flow: #

Create a flow in which the attribute data passed through the API will be utilized. The flow will be executed based on decision nodes and flows defined in the chatbot.
