Custom bots

Within LiveEngage, a bot is a type of an agent and operates similarly to human agents.  Bots are available on live chat and any messaging channel: in-app messaging, web messaging, Facebook and SMS.

In order to set up a bot within LiveEngage, the following steps should be taken:

  1. Create an agent type user within LiveEngage and give it the name of your bot. Learn more.
  2. Utilize our API or SDK to automatically control the actions of the bot.  Learn more.
  3. Contact your LivePerson rep to set up routing that will determine how your bot should pick up conversations.
  4. Monitor and report bot performance in real-time with detailed and flexible reports.
