How does this Zobot work?

This bot can engage with your visitors, list the available services, and schedule a booking via Calendly only after verifying by OTP through email. 
  • Schedule bookings: Bot provides visitors a single-use scheduling link to schedule bookings/appointments.

  • Track bookings: Bot assists to check the status of bookings by simply receiving an email from the user.
Zobot Integration and Requirements:

You can integrate using invoking URL (for API calls) with SalesIQ scripts using personal access tokens (Basic Authorization). 
  • Initiates/triggers a welcome message for interaction with the visitor.
  • Authenticate the visitor by using OTP via email.
  • Create bookings via Calendly
  • Track the status of the booking.
This is the flow of bot, you can make changes to the flow according to your business needs. 



How to create this Zobot?

For each event you provide, there is a unique id, find it and use it accordingly in your scripts.
  1. token = " Bearer <Paste your token here>";
  2. header = Map();
  3. header.put("Authorization",token);
  4. //Create a map to hold the parameters required to execute the API call
  5. params = Map();
  6. // Parameters to generate a single-use scheduling link. 
  7. params.put("max_event_count","1");
  8. params.put("owner","https://api.calendly.com/event_types/ <Paste unique ID of event type>");
