This guide will walk you through accessing, filtering, and searching your chatbot's conversation history, helping you to harness the full potential of your chatbot's data for better performance and user experience.

Accessing the History Page

Gaining insights from your chatbot's past interactions starts with accessing the History page. This platform feature is intuitively designed for ease of use, allowing you to swiftly locate and examine your chatbot's conversational history. Follow these steps to access the historical data:

  1. Log in to Your Account: Securely sign in with your user credentials to access the main workspace of the platform.
  2. Navigate to History: Look for the 'History' tab, which is situated in the left-side navigation bar.
  3. Enter the History Page: Click on the 'History' item to be taken to the page that displays your chatbot's interactions.

By default, upon entering the History page, you will be greeted with a chronological list of today's conversations. This default setting provides a quick snapshot of the most recent interactions, allowing for immediate review of the day's activity. In the following sections, we will guide you on how to adjust this view to encompass a wider date range and how to utilize search functionalities to pinpoint specific conversations.

Filtering the History

The History page defaults to showing today's chatbot interactions, but often you'll need to explore conversations from the past. The platform's filtering tools enable you to customize this view to suit your analytical needs. Here's how to filter your chatbot's interaction history by date:

  1. Select Date Range: At the top of the History page, you'll find the date range selector. Use this feature to choose the start and end dates for the period you wish to examine.

  2. Apply Date Filter: Once you've set the desired date range, apply the filter. The page will refresh to display only the interactions that took place within your chosen timeframe.

  3. Adjust as Needed: If you need to adjust the date range to hone in on a specific period, you can easily modify your selection and reapply the filter to update the conversation list.

By utilizing the date range filter, you can narrow down the conversation history to the exact time period you're interested in. This focused approach allows for a more efficient review of your chatbot's interactions, helping you to identify patterns, assess user engagement, and make informed decisions to improve your chatbot's dialogue and functionality.

Searching Chatbot History

The search functionality within the History page is a targeted way to locate specific interactions based on keywords or phrases used in the chatbot conversations. This feature is particularly useful for analyzing how the chatbot responds to certain inquiries or identifying common themes in user interactions. Here's how to effectively search your chatbot's history:

  1. Find the Search Bar: Look for the search bar, which is usually easy to locate on the History page.

  2. Input Your Keyword or Phrase: Type the keyword or phrase that you want to investigate into the search bar. This should be a word or sequence of words that you expect to find in the chatbot's conversations.

  3. Initiate the Search: Press enter or click the search icon to begin the search. The system will then search through the chat history for instances where your keyword or phrase appears.

  4. Examine the Results: The conversations containing your search term will be listed. You can review these to see the context in which the term was used and how the chatbot handled the interaction.

  5. Narrow Down Results: If your search returns too many results or if you're looking for a specific usage, you may need to try more precise phrases or add additional keywords to narrow down the conversations displayed.

By utilizing the search feature, you can quickly and efficiently dissect your chatbot's interactions, allowing for a deeper understanding of both user behavior and chatbot performance. This insight is crucial for making data-driven decisions to enhance the effectiveness of your chatbot.
