Webinar: Building a Crisis FAQ chat bot with Power Virtual Agents on May 1st

With the current Covid19 situation, one of the top requests we are seeing is how to use Power Virtual Agents to create a Crisis FAQ chat bot. To help with those requests, the Power Virtual Agents engineering team has done some great blog posts to get you started:

This webinar is designed to be a supplement to those posts, answer your questions and drilldown into best practices and tips for building a crisis response chat bot for your organization.

A Crisis FAQ chat bot can help you address some common questions of employees, for example, in the face of crisis. You can sign up for the Power Virtual Agents trial version to create a bot (trial is free for 30 days and currently extendable after 30 days) and use the pointers outlined in this presentation to create and customize topics as needed for your audience. The webinar will walk you through an example with step by step guidance that you can expand for other scenarios and answering your questions real time. The key goal of this webinar is to help you get a Crisis FAQ bot created, running and deployed quickly.

In this webinar we will also cover the exciting new offer and announcement made by Alysa Taylor:
