I think it is silly to require users to upload a custom icon for each bot. I just spent a few minutes searching the web to find an icon. My goal is to build a bot, not choose icons. I suggest having a set default of icons to choose from or using a placeholder icon if none is selected.

Hello, is it possible to schedule messages to go through at a specific time, regardless of time zone. ManyChat calls it "time travel", where the subscriber receives the message at 6am for example, regardless of where in the world they are. We do a daily devotion and send to subscribers worldwide on a daily basis.

I have some Python code on my local system that I need to use as the backend for my bot. How do I pass data from the bot to the backend? As the Py code is on my local system, I don't have an API address for it as required by the JSON interaction (unless someone can guide me with making it). This Py code needs to be my backend as it connects to a set of databases, and provides certain other functionalities.

Hi, For example, if I want to build a quiz bot, and I have some 200 questions. And I want to post these questions randomly to the user reading from excel/database/API and asking the user select the one right option from the list of 4 options and then verifying it with the correct answer which is also read from excel/database/API. How to achieve this? Any link to read about this will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

Why the text disable function is only available for the whole bot or only if you put in a quick reply? We are using also text cards and other features to direct customers toward answers. Can you make it available to add Text Disabling function by each bot statement even if there is no quick replies at the bot statement?

I am running facebook messenger ads which allows the user to respond with a quick reply question. So the user clicks on the quick reply button in the facebook messenger ad and the bot is asked that particular question. I have the bot setup to answer this question but since it is the user's first time interacting with the bot, the user is getting the welcome message instead. When the user then repeats the question, all is well and the bot responds appropriately. So when it is the first interaction, how can I get the bot to answer the user's question directly without having to repeat themselves (because first time users get the welcome message)?. I'm a newbie here so I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, any help would be appreciated.

I'm building a bot for the website. There are certain responses (user inputs) that I need to pass to my backend, after which they are processed there, and relevant data is sent back to the chatbot. My backend is built using Python, and is currently on my local system as my application is still under development. How do I send data to and from the bot?

My bot needs to take whatever the user types and search for relevant results. I created the Google Custom Search Engine (GCSE) as required, and have pasted the API key and engine ID. When I tested the CSE on the Google control panel (on developers.google), it worked as I expected it to work. However, on the bot, it any query triggers the error response. How do I use the Search interaction?

Hey, i am having troubles with the NLP part, the BOT does not seem to use my custom NLP, furthermore, it does not respect the "do nothing" policy either when it comes to the "Helo" interaction. Do you have any recommendation to resolve my problems? Thanks in advance!

Hello, I have a question, I can not pass interactions without having to put quick answers or without the user writing. I would like to go from interactions to interactions without doing anything, but the bot is waiting for something. Sorry I used Google Traslate
