Setting Up Automated FAQs

If you have access to Pro features, you can set up Webchat to automatically answer frequently asked  questions about prices, products, or policies. You can add questions manually, or, if you have many questions, you can import a CSV file. When a website visitor texts a question through the Webchat widget, artificial intelligence analyzes your FAQs to find the closest match and immediately sends a response.


Attention: If you don’t have access to this feature and you’re interested in using it, please contact your Podium account team to upgrade.
