Dialogflow Messenger Example Bots
On this page, I describe some example bots you can build using the Dialogflow Messenger integration.
Simple FAQ chatbot
This is the canonical example of a chatbot. And the most common use case for Dialogflow – helping people find answers to questions which are posed in natural language.
I have created an FAQ chatbot based on the articles on this website. It is a very simple FAQ bot – the article titles are the training phrases, and the response is a link to the article. That’s it.
You can interact with the live bot here.
I used my BotFlo app to create the website chatbot.
Dialogflow provides a way to import an FAQ bot using the agent ZIP file import feature.
This means it is possible to create a script which will allows you to automatically turn a CSV file of intent definitions into an FAQ chatbot. In other words, you can bulk upload Dialogflow intents using my BotFlo app.
The website chatbot I have created is a specific application of this process. So instead of having to manually type out an intent for each article on your website, you can just:
- use a plugin to export a CSV file of all the articles in your WordPress website
- use BotFlo to convert the CSV file into a Dialogflow agent ZIP file
- import the ZIP file into your Dialogflow console (using the Restore ZIP button)
- your FAQ chatbot based on your WordPress website articles is ready to go!

Selection Triggers the Next Intent
This bot provides a tour of the Dialogflow Messenger rich responses and is a good example of a bot where the user selects an option, which in turn triggers (or fires) the next intent.
Decision Tree Bot
This bot helps the user make a decision by having them answer a series of Yes/No questions.
The checklist bot walks the user through a list of items in a checklist.
Interactive Learning Bot
The interactive learning bot helps you teach concepts to your users/students by asking them a series of questions and assessing their knowledge of the material.
