ManyChat

Bot Settings

Okay, let's do an overview of the main Bot Settings and explore how to set up ManyChat bot and customise it. Jump to Settings to proceed.


General

Greeting Text is shown to users on mobile devices only before they start an interaction with your bot. This may be a brief description or a lead text to make your future subscribers message your page. To instantly preview your message, just click on "See how it looks".




Card URL Shortener shortens URLs and records your messages CTR through manychat.com. Changing or disabling it requires Pro subscription. We recommend not to disable Card URL Shortener because doing it will prevent ManyChat from providing the Click-Through Rate (CTR) data.

Clone to Another Page transfers all content of this bot to another page.

Use as Template. You can create a snapshot of this bot and share it via link.

Refresh Facebook Permissions. Messenger platform can unexpectedly drop page permissions on admin password change or due to its internal reasons. In case of any trouble with content sending or service setup, we recommend you to refresh permissions.

Disable bot for this page turns your current page bot off. You can enable it again whenever you want.


Live Chat

Live Chat Behavior allows you to set 2 options for Live Chat:

  • Any message starts a conversation option opens a new chat in Live Chat section with any message from a user (except Keywords).
  • Conversation should be opened explicitly opens Live Chat with subscriber only when they perform an Action attached to a Button or Quick Reply (also can be started by an Admin when needed).

Close all opened conversations allows you to mark all opened conversations as Done.

Sound notifications. Enable or disable in-app sound alerts.


Growth Tools
