  • 1.  What are you use cases for Dynamic Slots

    As you may have heard on the roadmap session, Bot Flows will soon have dynamic slots which will allow slot utterances to be matched against a dynamic list of words or phrases.  I am interested in how you expect to use these in your own Bots.  For me, a simple example is for state lookup.  I can have a list of all the states and have it match against them (currently, we are limited to only 50 entries in a slot), but that is a static list.  Another idea is toppings on a pizza based on location or inventory.  

    When it comes to new features, they are great, but how they actually get used is what fascinates me and will help Genesys create even better ones.  

    Bring on your ideas and let us know your ideas for dynamics slots.

    We are a bank, so my thinking has been for customer accounts. 
    So some customers might have 2-3 bank accounts, some have 10+, House Savings, Spending Accounts etc etc
    So for chatbot the idea is to fetch a list of accounts and balances from the backend, populate the slot with accounts and present their account names or numbers as cards for them to select from. From there we can of course do all sorts of things, read out balances for the selected acount, transfer money etc. 

    Think there is a max of 10 cards currently, so yeah might need to work around that for larger lists.

    But that is at least what my initial thinking has been.

    Keen to hear what other people have planned.

    We are financial institution also, and our use case is if a customer can't pay to offer alternative dates based on our back end db information.

    Does anyone know as to when Dynamic Slots are coming? Would this be something that could be used to collect a new street name for kind of a change of adress voice bot?

    The idea is you use your own APIs to pull a list of things from your CRM for example.
    eg. Get a list of the Customer Accounts, and then in your web messenger bot they could select one of their accounts as a card.
    The idea is you don't know what values will be in the slot, that is why they are dynamic.

    But you don't have to use an API, you can provide any collection of strings for the Dynamic Slot.
    Eg a list of toppings for different Pizzas, some Pizzas might not include meat others might, you can use the same slot and logic and have different topping options for example.
