Hi there! I’m trying to solve a problem and could use some crowd sourcing on this one!
I want my bot to be a little more interactive and leave the user feeling heard. One thing I’d like to implement is the option to allow the user to respond without forcing it.
For example: (Inside active form)
Bot : Where are you travelling to?
Bot : Nice, I hope you have fun!
----PAUSE TO GIVE USER CHANCE TO RESPOND----
Bot: When would you like to go?
From here the user can say something like “thanks!” , but I don’t necessarily want to force this action. If the user doesn’t respond in a few seconds the bot should know to continue with the next slot. I tried implementing a sleep function but in the rasa shell it doesn’t let me type during the sleep so I’m not sure this is the way to go.
Perhaps with an Event? Does anyone know how to do something like this? Thanks!
