Welcome to the Web Conversations client getting started guide. On this page, you'll find all the knowledge which you will need to create your first Web Conversation configuration.
Once you have created your content in a Conversational AI Cloud database you can create a Web Conversations Client to show the content you have created. To start, go to: https://webconversations.digitalcx.com/ and click on the "+" button to create a new configuration.
A new window will pop up. In this window, you can give your Web Conversation Client a title. This title is only visible to anyone else with access to the Conversational AI Cloud project.
There are various options when selecting a 'type':
- Web Chat
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Internal Knowledge Base
At 'Project' you can select your Conversational AI Cloud database which you want to connect and 'Culture' determines what content within the project's scope the answer will originate from.
After creating your configuration you will be redirected to an interface where you can configure your Web Conversations config.
Let's start with the global settings. It contains five submenus which will expand upon clicking on the right side of the UI:

The inactive session has two options: 15 minutes or 24 hours. The inactive session feature makes it possible to send a specific chosen event when this time has expired.
