FAQ Block

An FAQ block is a block in your recipe that is dedicated to fielding questions from your customers. While you could always trigger your FAQ database using blocks like questions and sliders, they are limited in their capabilities.

Verloop’s dedicated FAQ block, allows you to have the digital equivalent of a full-time virtual customer support representative, powered by Artificial Intelligence. In this article, we’re going to discuss the features of the FAQ block that you use to augment your bot.

To use the FAQ block in your recipe, simply click the button titled “FAQ”.

FAQ suggestions

This allows you to be more readily available to your customers, especially if you can show answers to some of your most asked questions. Additionally, you can change the message your customers receive before suggesting questions to them.

If the bot cannot understand the phrasing of a question that a person asks, using machine learning it will identify keywords in the customers’ question and automatically suggest the closest alternatives.

The bot will keep at this task of fielding questions until it has determined that the customer is satisfied; i.e. till the customers hits the button that says, “no more questions”.
