Appearance & Basic Settings has options like Headline, Description, Welcome message, and Brand color to edit. Let’s understand each one of them:

Headline

It is the topmost text that appears on the chatbot.

Description

It is the second line of text on the chatbot popup. This is the area where you describe your chatbot and how it can help the users.

Welcome Message

This section can be used to welcome the users before he/she starts using the chatbot.

Brand Color

The overall chatbot can be changed by using the option brand color available at the bottom of the page.

Custom Instructions

You can add your custom instructions to the AI chatbot. Follow the below steps to set up custom instructions.

  • Open the chatbot in which you want to add the custom instructions.
  • Select the Behavior Tab.

  • Under the Behavior tab, you can add your custom instructions.

These instructions can be anything that helps your AI support to answer and solve users’ questions, issues, and queries efficiently.

For example, If you want AI to always have a conversation in German, you can simply add instructions to “Always reply in German”.

Conversation Style & Creativity

Imagine you want to give a custom conversation style to your AI Chatbot that answers the user’s questions uniquely. Aidbase AI Chatbot offers three conversation styles, Formal, Casual, and Enthusiastic.

Formal: The chatbot will use full sentences, avoid contractions, and use former grammar.
Enthusiastic: it will use more upbeat language and a positive tone.
Casual: It is somewhere between “Formal” and “Enthusiastic.”

For example, Let’s say you want to greet a new user who just clicked the AI chatbot. The Aidbase chatbot can greet them in three different styles:

  1. Formal

Example Text: "Thank you for reaching out to us. We appreciate your interest in our services. Please let us know how we can assist you further. Have a pleasant day."

  1. Enthusiastic

Example Text: "Thanks so much for getting in touch with us! We're thrilled to hear you're interested in our services. Let us know how we can help you out. Have an amazing day!"

  1. Casual

Example Text: "Hey, thanks for reaching out! We're glad you're interested in what we do. Let us know how we can help. Have a great day!"

Here’s how you can implement any of them for your chatbot:

  • Open your chatbot.
  • Under the Behavior Tab, you find the conversation style slider at the bottom.

  • Slide the bar for the type of conversation style you want to choose.

The very next option you will see is a creativity Slider. This slider helps you to customize the ability for your AI to improvise the answers. The slider has three modes of creativity, Reserved, Moderate, and Creative.

Reserved: the chatbot will strictly use the knowledge base and not attempt to make its conclusions in any way

Creative: the chatbot might improvise and assume certain answers given the knowledge it already has. Moderate: It is somewhere between Reserved and Creative.

For example, the chatbot can greet the new user in three different creative styles:

1. Reserved

Example Text: "Thank you for reaching out to us. We appreciate your interest in our services. Our operating hours are Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM. Please let us know how we can assist you further. Have a pleasant day."

2. Creative

Example Text: "Thanks so much for getting in touch with us! We're thrilled to hear you're interested in our services. While we typically operate from 9 AM to 5 PM on weekdays, we might be able to accommodate special requests outside these hours. Let us know how we can help you out. Have an amazing day!"

3. Moderate

Example Text: "Hey, thanks for reaching out! We're glad you're interested in what we do. Our usual hours are Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM, but we may have some flexibility. Let us know how we can help. Have a great day!"

Allowed domains

You can (optionally) restrict your chatbot’s placement control. This means you can allow the chatbot to place on the allowed domains.

For example, you have created a chatbot for “Startup A” and the script for the same. If you put the “Startup A” domain under the allowed domain, the chatbot will be restricted to that particular domain. This way you can avoid the misuse of the chatbot on any other website.

Rate Limits

Rate limits are about how many messages the chatbot can send in a particular period. You can edit the message rate limits under the Settings tab of the chatbot.

Remove Branding

Aidbase offers you full customization of your AI Chatbot and that also includes Aidbase branding. By default, it is set to Show Aidbase branding but you can always set it off.

You will find the option to remove it under the Settings Tab.
