What is documentation?
Documentation is the backbone of a successful chatbot. It provides the necessary information for the bot to understand customer inquiries and respond appropriately. Without documentation, the bot would be unable to understand the context of the customer's question and would provide irrelevant or incorrect responses.
Think about it this way, imagine going to a store, and the sales representative doesn't know about the products, or can't answer your questions about them. It's likely you would not have a positive experience, and would not be inclined to return. The same applies to chatbot, if it's unable to understand and respond to customer inquiries, it will lead to a frustrating experience for customers.
How chatbots use documentation
Chatbots rely on documentation to understand and respond to customer inquiries. The bot uses the information in the documentation to understand the context of the customer's question and provide an appropriate response. This includes understanding industry-specific language, providing quick responses to common questions and guiding the bot's responses in specific scenarios.
For example, if a customer asks a question about the return policy of a product, the bot can refer to the documentation to provide a detailed and accurate response. Similarly, if a customer is asking for the location of a store, the bot can refer to the documentation to provide the correct address and contact information.
What documents we suggest to have
There are few types of documents that we think are necessary for chatbot to operate. These include:
- About Us: An "About Us" document can provide customers with information about your company, including its mission, values, and history. This can help to establish trust and credibility with customers.
- FAQs: A list of frequently asked questions and answers can help the bot understand common customer inquiries and provide quick responses.
- Glossary: A glossary of terms and definitions can help the bot understand industry-specific language and provide more accurate responses.
- Use cases: A list of use cases and instructions on how should Chatbot reply for example:
- “If customer asks about booking an appointment send this link https://calendly.com/theo/book-appointment“
- “When asked about integrations, kindly apologize and say we don’t currently support it”
By providing detailed and accurate information, chatbots can understand customer inquiries and provide appropriate responses. At ResolveAI, we take documentation seriously and are committed to providing the best possible service to our customers.

Regularly reviewing and updating documentation is crucial to ensure that the chatbot is providing the best possible customer service. As customer inquiries and business needs change, the documentation must reflect these changes to ensure that the chatbot is providing accurate and relevant responses.
