In the Intent Manager tab, you teach your chatbot to understand what users mean when they message. You can create intents that enable the chatbot to understand the contact's purpose and respond accordingly.
For instance, you can add words and phrases that have the same meaning, such as "greetings" or "hi", to create a "greeting" intent. The more you train the chatbot's intents, the better it becomes at comprehending and addressing user requests. As a result, users have a better experience, and requests are handled more quickly.
