What are FAQs?
Frequently Asked Questions are a set of predefined questions, that can be used to answer the commonly asked questions by the visitors. If an FAQ is asked by a visitor and it matches an existing question; your bot will choose a response from the list of answers provided and respond to the query of your visitor.
You can access the FAQs page from your dashboard.
Customizing Small Talk for your Verloop Bot
Small talk is a random chat that your visitor might want to pick up with your bot. You can simply create a few templates for your bot to use when a random conversation is initiated. Verloop has created a number of groups for you. Each group has a set of well-thought questions with a list of answers for them. Depending on your requirements you can add more questions or answers under various groups; or add new groups altogether.

Best Practices to setup your FAQ’s
There are a few tips that will help you in creating the best FAQ framework for your organization and help your customers make the optimal use of them.
- Put yourself in the shoes of your visitor
- Write multiple questions under a group; so that any number of queries can be answered by your bot, even if they are asked in various different forms.
- Don’t put the same question sentence in different groups. If you do this, the bot gets confused as there are two different answer to the same question and wont be able to predict the right answer to the question.
What is a confidence threshold and how it affects your chatbot?
The AI backend of Verloop is designed in such a manner whereinthe bot decides whether to answer a question or pass it on to a human, based on the FAQ confidence threshold set by you.
How does the threshold work?
The bot answers a query/ FAQ based on its confidence level (set by you).
If the threshold is set on a very high level, then the bot won’t answer any question apart from the ones that are exactly the same as mentioned in the FAQ.
If the threshold is set on a very low level, then the bot will answer almost all the questions and thus, may end up giving wrong answers.
Disable the FAQ functionality of your Verloop account
If you don’t want your bot to answer any query/FAQ, simply disable the FAQ switch.
