Your Ada Test Bot is your secret weapon in ensuring your answer flows are crisp, clean, and accurate, as it allows you to test your answers before making them available to your customers.
There are two ways to access the Test Bot. The first is via the Test Bot button in the lower left side panel of your Ada dashboard, and the second is the Test Answer button within an Answer.
Test Bot Button
The Test Bot button is always available in the lower left side panel of your Ada dashboard. Clicking it will launch the Test Bot, allowing you the ability to interact with the bot as your chatters do, replicating their experience and testing out your flows.
Test Answer Button
The Test Answer button within an Answer is a great option when you are creating child Answers, as it allows you to test that specific Answer within your Test Bot, without having to navigate through complicated Answer flows to access it. Once an Answer has been saved, you will have the option to click the Test Answer button at the bottom of your Answer editor to launch your Test Bot and automatically load the Answer you were just interacting with.
Test Bot Settings
Click the three dots in the upper left corner to access the Test Bot’s settings. Modifying any of these settings will apply to this Test Bot only, and will not impact the Test Bots of other Bot Managers within your organization.
