How to complete onboarding?

Step 1: Click on the Start Onboarding Button

Locate the "Start Onboarding" button, and with a simple click, you'll set the wheels in motion for a more efficient and engaging community.

Step 2: Set Bot Permissions

One of the most powerful features of AwesomeQA is its flexibility. You have full control over where the bot can operate within your community. Here's how to set the permissions:

  • Channel Selection: You can decide which channels the bot should interact with. Whether it's specific discussion channels, support forums, or anywhere else.

  • Read Permissions: Toggle on or off the "Read" permission for each channel individually. This controls whether the bot can access and monitor conversations in those channels.

  • Send Permissions: Similarly, toggle on or off the "Send" permission for each channel. This determines where AwesomeQA can actively engage with your community.

By individually adjusting these permissions, you customize AwesomeQA's role to suit your community's unique needs. It's a smart way to ensure the bot operates seamlessly within your community, providing valuable support where it's needed most.

Step 3: Adding Documentation

  • Add Documentation Links: Begin by adding the links to your documentation. These links will serve as a valuable resource for the bot to learn from. You're not limited to a specific number of documentation links—feel free to add as many as you need. This is one of the key ways AwesomeQA sources information, ensuring its responses are well-informed and relevant.

  • Automated Learning: Normally, AwesomeQA scrapes documents every two weeks to keep its knowledge up to date. However, if you upload a new link or make changes to existing documents that you want the bot to quickly pick up, you can trigger a force scraping command. Simply click edit and save the links again. This will prompt the bot to perform a force scrape, and the updated or new documents will be integrated within 2 hours.

Final Step: Launching AwesomeQA's Training and Activation

  • Review Your Choices: Take a moment to review all the choices you've made throughout the onboarding process. But don’t worry, you can always come back and change things around as you please, nothing is final.

  • Click "Finish": When you're satisfied with your selections, click the "Finish" button. This marks the start of the bot's training phase, where it fine-tunes its responses to match your community's unique needs. Keep an eye out for a banner at the top of the web app indicating that the AI is training.

  • Await the Activation: As the training completes, AwesomeQA gears up to join your community's conversation. You'll receive a direct message on Discord from the AwesomeQA bot, indicating that it's ready to roll.

  • Check Bot Activity: Want to know if AwesomeQA is up and running? It's as easy as asking a question and tagging the bot. Simply type a question like "Are you there? @awesomeqa" in your community's chosen channels. The bot's response will let you know that it's actively engaged and ready to assist.

What is the Support Portal?

This feature is designed to streamline your support workflow and ensure that no question goes unanswered. Let's delve into the details:

  • Organized Unanswered Questions: Provides you with an organized list of all unanswered questions within your community. This creates a central hub where you can easily identify which queries need attention, preventing any question from slipping through the cracks.

  • Open and Mark Resolved Buttons: For each question listed on the Support Portal, two buttons are available: "Open" and "Mark Resolved." These options grant you the flexibility to manage your support tasks effectively.

  • Open Button: When you click the "Open" button, you're instantly taken to the Discord or Telegram chat where the question was originally asked. This direct link eliminates the need to search for the question manually, saving you valuable time and allowing you to reply promptly.

  • Mark Resolved Button: Clicking the "Mark Resolved" button is a straightforward way to declutter the Support Portal. This action removes the question from the list, streamlining the portal and ensuring that only relevant queries are at the forefront. It's a powerful method to keep your workspace organized and focused on actionable tasks.

  • Chat History Display: If you click on any of the questions listed, the chat history that followed that question is displayed on the right side of the portal. This insight lets you see whether anyone outside your team attempted to answer the question and whether the information provided was accurate. With this knowledge, you can step in and correct any misinformation, ensuring accurate and helpful responses.

What are FAQ Insights?

Are you curious about what's buzzing within your community? You can quickly learn about that on the FAQ insights page.

  • Comprehensive Topic and Question Listing: Get a bird's-eye view of the most-discussed topics and questions in your community. You'll have a curated list right at your fingertips.

Is there a way I can test AwesomeQA before adding it to my community?

Fortunately, with AwesomeQA, you can take it for a test drive before committing. Here's how:

  1. Create a Test Environment:

  • Start by creating a test server or a private channel within your main server. This isolated space is your playground for getting to know AwesomeQA.

  1. Onboarding Steps:

  • Follow the onboarding steps explained earlier in this blog post. These initial steps will help you set up AwesomeQA in your test environment.

  1. Tag for Testing:

  • By default, we've configured AwesomeQA not to respond to moderators, owners, team members, community managers, or admins. Since you likely have one of these roles in your test server, you'll need to initiate interactions by tagging the bot after your question. For instance, "Why am I not seeing the most recent transaction in my wallet? @awesomeqa". Once tagged, AwesomeQA will respond promptly to your inquiries.

A Note on Testing

It's important to understand that tagging the bot is a requirement only in this testing scenario. When AwesomeQA is fully active within your community, it operates seamlessly without this step. It automatically responds to relevant questions by drawing information from your three primary sources: the knowledge base, chat history, and documentation.
