            Getting Started

            Get started by creating a account on the platform using your email id. Once you have created your account, the platform provides you a list of predefined templates. You can choose any of the predefined templates as per your use case. In this article we will use the E-commerce template and help you customise it according to your needs.

            Customising template conversations

            Once you have chosen a template and created a campaign, you would need to choose that campaign as shown in the below image.

            The template has pre-defined conversation modules in the Chat Flow > Conversations tab and you can customised these conversations as per your need to create your bot. Lets go through each conversation module one by one:

            1. Get Started - This is the starting conversation. You can modify the welcome message by using images and some detail to introduce your bot to the user.
              You can also change the 
              CTAs that helps user to continue, as per your need.
              For more help on how to customise the message and using buttons and Quick replies as CTAs, you can use the below links:

            2. Product Base - This conversation helps display your product catalogue to the user and provide all the information about your store.
            3. Apparels/Accessories/Footwear These conversations help collect users preferences and provide users with multiple options to choose from. Starting rules have been created for these conversations, so that they can be triggered using some keywords.

            4. Fallback - This is one of the system conversation, which is triggered when your users type in something, the bot cannot recognise, for example — they typed in something that doesn't match any of your Keywords or FAQs defined in the bot.
            5. Nurturing Flow 1 ,2 ,3 - These conversations are used to reinitiate chat with the user as conditional follow ups. You can make these conversations more personalised by using users preferences.
            Now that you have modified all you conversations, you can integrate some of the the frequently asked questions in the Chat Flow > FAQs tab by clicking on the 'Create New' button.
