Alli is powered by Machine Reading Comprehension (MRC) technology. It allows customers and agents to find answers directly from uploaded documents  (Check out Fill the answer directly from your documents and Direct Answer from Uploaded Documents). With feedback from our valued customers, we decided to step further and add 'Answer with Documents' node in Alli's skill editor. Let's see how it works!

To use the Documents node, you should first upload documents to DOCUMENTS tab in the FAQ menu. Please check Fill the answer directly from your documents to see more details.

In the skill editor, you can find the 'Answer with Documents' node icon on the left side of the node icon bar. Click to create a node.

  2. Select User input to ask your customer to type in a question.
  3. Customize the question to ask.
  4. Check to repeat the question when enter the node.
  5. Check to set actions when any answer is found from documents.
  6. Select hashtags to find answers only in the documents with selected hashtags. You can select variables too, and it works when the variable value is one of the existing hashtags.
