Best Practices for Text References

  1. Clarity and Precision: Ensure questions and answers are straightforward to enhance the AI's response accuracy.
  2. Avoid Repetitions: The AI is designed to understand and respond to variations of the same question, eliminating the need for duplicate entries. Your agent won’t speak the reference answer as it is, but will take that to form an answer in natural language for your caller.
  3. Selective Information: Omit topics you prefer not to address. The AI will gracefully inform callers of unavailable information.

Example References:

Let’s add some commonly asked questions as references.

Clear and unambiguous questions and answers will train your agent better. If you have an extensive list of questions and answers (more than 100), let us know and we will upload those all at once for you. We are also working on features and tools to let you upload your documents directly as well as populate your references using your website.

An interesting way of giving text references is by giving Instructions to your AI Agent in the Answer portion. It doesn’t really have to be a straightforward answer. Look at this example, it will give a better explanation to it. Portal Agents 5176fa60 Ba21 4fc9 8ae0 8371f9288c7d References Bd384777 911f 41aa 8c40 F9656fb89854(i Pad Pro)
