Introducing the Codeless Bot platform in SalesIQ - the fastest way to build chatbots!

Bot building with minimal or no coding is the need of the hour. So, we at Zoho SalesIQ, are here, introducing our Codeless Bot platform. With this platform, you can create chatbots in minutes without a line of code. The platform uses blocks to collect pieces of information from the visitor, sends personalized messages, and performs actions based on their needs.

Highlights of the Codeless bot:

  • Rule-based chatbots:  It is a code-free, rule-based chatbot builder in SalesIQ that can help you create a conversational bot just by designing a flowchart. The platform works on the basis of predefined inputs and keywords. All instructions for the bot are pre-coded by developers so that the bot can act and respond accordingly. The bot questions the visitor, provides response suggestions and when the visitor responds, it analyses the intents in the response and replies contextually. 
  • Easy management : You can build and make changes to the bot flow anytime without any complexity. 
How it can ease the bot building experience?:

  • No-code experience: This platform will only require you to build a flow chart based on your requirements for the bot and requires absolutely no code. Once the flow is done, SalesIQ will build the bot for you.
  • Drag and drop interface: The builder has a simple drag and drop interface wherein you have to drag elements from the right side of the builder and drop them in the cardholder.
  • Quick and efficient : Once the flow chart is complete with no open links, you can publish the bot then and there and it will be fully ready to assist website visitors.


Let's look at some important terms that are used inside the codeless bot platform.

  1. Card: They define the functions performed by the bots. Add, remove and rearrange cards to change the bot's functionality. 
  2. Cardholder: Click or drag and drop the block to the cardholder to add as a card in the bot's flow.
  3. Block: Drag and drop blocks from the block gallery to the board to add them as cards.
  4. Connected link: They are the defined connections. Once executed, the flow will move on to the next card.   
  5. Open link: They are undefined connections. You can add cards to the open links to continue the flow.
  6. Link tag: Links tag is used to denote the rules or other conditions of the link.
  7. Preview: This option lets you preview the working of the bot as you make changes.
