Messenger links and QR codes
Regular links to your chatbot on Facebook Messenger and Telegram can be found under the “Test your chatbot” button in the visual builder. These links will start your chatbot conversation from the “start” skill.
Direct links to the “start” skill of your chatbot on messengers
But sometimes you need deep links to start specific skills in your chatbot – this can be used for marketing campaigns, particular use cases, etc. Also, it’s nice to have an option to set specific attribute values when conversations are started – for example, to check which ad campaign your users come from or set the language for multi-language projects.
Setting up deep chatbot messenger links
Click the blue “Get link and code” button to generate the link (it will be displayed on top of the settings window). You can click the “copy” icon to copy the generated link to the clipboard.
For each messenger link that you create, Activechat generates a QR code. You can use this code in various marketing materials (leaflets, print ads, merchandise, etc) to help your customers engage with your business.
Scan the code below with your mobile phone camera to see how it works! (Note the custom message in the widget).
