Prebuilt agents

Prebuilt agents are a collection of agents provided by Dialogflow for common use cases. Similar to Dialogflow ES prebuilt agents, these can be used to establish a base for building conversations. In Dialogflow CX, you will find popular use cases across industries, such as telecommunications, financial services, healthcare, retail, and travel.

Prebuilt agents include intents and entities for their use cases, but you need to modify the example route groups and fulfillment (where applicable).

Limitations

The following limitations apply:

  • Prebuilt agents currently only support English (en).

Import a prebuilt agent

To import a prebuilt agent to your project:

  1. Go to the Dialogflow CX Console.
  2. Click the project where you would like to import the prebuilt agent.
  3. Click Use pre-built agents.
  4. Click the agent of interest and click Import.
  5. Choose your desired location and click Create.
  6. Start testing and customizing.

Customize the imported prebuilt agent

  1. Test the agent using the simulator to understand what it can help users accomplish.
  2. Click the Manage tab in the left pane and then Test Cases to see coverage and example scripts. For more information, see the Test cases documentation.
  3. Delete any flows that are irrelevant to your use case.
  4. Edit agent dialogue and custom entities to meet your business needs.
  5. If there is webhook source code, see Modifying webhook code.

Modifying webhook code

A selection of the prebuilt agents utilize webhooks. The original webhook source code uses Node.js and is hosted in Google's internal Cloud Functions project.

To use and modify this code in your own Cloud Functions project, please follow the subsequent directions:

  1. Go to the Dialogflow CX Console.
  2. Click the project where you would like to import the prebuilt agent.
  3. Click Use pre-built agents.
  4. Click the agent of interest then click Documentation link, which will bring you to the relevant pre-built agent section of this document.

  5. See the Webhook subsection for the prebuilt agent and copy the source code.

  6. Go to the Google Cloud Console and select Cloud Functions on the left panel.

  7. Click the project where you would like to import the source code.

  8. Click Create Function. For further instructions, take a look at the Create a Cloud Function documentation.

  9. Under the Source code section, select Inline Editor and paste the copied source code.

  10. Click Source and then Edit to change the logic based on your business rules. Once finished, click Deploy.

  11. Click Trigger and copy the Trigger URL.

  12. Replace that Trigger URL in your agent by going to Manage > Webhooks and selecting the webhook to paste the new URL into. Paste the Trigger URL into the field labeled Webhook URL. Click Save.

  13. Using the Webhooks documentation, test your fulfillment.

Financial services agent

This template helps end-users with their cards, checks an application status, and investigates suspicious charges.

Sample utterances

  • I'd like to make a payment towards my balance.
  • I lost my card and need a new one.
  • I want to report some suspicious activity on my checking account.
  • What is my auto loan application status?
  • What are the different annual fees on your business credit cards?

Webhook

The Cloud Functions webhook performs the following actions:

  • Validates an end-user's identity
  • Provides sample balances, loan status, and credit card feature information
  • Mocks sample payments, including validating payment amounts and dates
  • Controls opening hours

Healthcare agent

This template helps end-users check their claims, benefits, and find a doctor.

Sample utterances

  • What is coinsurance?
  • Can you help me find a doctor?
  • I'm not feeling well.
  • What is my deductible?

Order and account management agent

This template helps end-users purchase or return a product, track orders, and manage account settings, such as loyalty points, addresses, and passwords.

Sample utterances

  • I haven't received my order, where is it?
  • I want to get a new phone.
  • I forgot my password.
  • Can you tell me how many points I have?
  • I moved and need to update my address.

Payment arrangement agent

This template helps end-users set up a two installment payment arrangement or extend a payment due date.

Sample utterances

  • My account was suspended.
  • I won't get paid on time to pay my bill.
  • I need to extend my due date.
  • I lost my job due to covid-19.

Webhook

This Cloud Functions webhook performs the following actions:

  • Provides sample amount due and maximum extension dates.
  • Calculates the second payment installment based on the difference between the total balance and the first payment installment paid.
  • Validates that the requested extension date does not surpass the maximum extension date.

Small talk agent

This template helps customize and personalize agents with simple questions.

Sample utterances

  • What's up?
  • Who are you?
  • Today is my birthday.
  • Sorry.
  • What do you mean?

Telecommunications agent

This template helps end-users resolve billing and plan questions, troubleshoot, and add travel and cruise plans.

Sample utterances

  • How can I save money on my bill?
  • My texts aren't going through.
  • How much more will I pay if I upgrade to Plan A?
  • I need data coverage for a trip I'm going on to Jamaica.

Webhook

The Cloud Functions webhook performs the following actions:

  • Compares plan costs based on a trip location and duration
  • Identifies billing anomalies based on an end-user's phone number

Travel: baggage claim agent

This template helps end-users create or check the status of a claim related to lost, delayed, or damage baggage.

Sample utterances

  • Can you help me file a claim for the bag you lost?
  • I'd like to know the status of my damaged bag claim.
  • When will my luggage arrive?

Webhook

This Cloud Functions webhook performs the following actions:

  • Verifies user and flight details.
  • Gerates a claim ID and returns claim information.

* Responds to any HTTP request.
