Filling slots at bot's startup

Hello everyone

I would like to fill some slots with values (from any source) but before the user prompt any intent. That is, the objective is to inform the user of the values I previously loaded. An example would be: “Hello, I’m Company X’s assistant and I would like to confirm your reservation. I have for {user_name} the master suite on {booking_date} …”

Is there an example on GitHub?

Any additional documentation besides

Thanks in advance

Hi! You can customize ActionSessionStart to set the necessary slots at the beginning of the conversation.

Aside from documentation, there is also the Rasa Masterclass. In addition, we have some examples on github, this is a good example for what you are trying to do.

Hi @fkoerner

How about setting the initial_value parameter for the respective slot ? Will this work in this scenario ?

Hi @siriusraja!

initial_value is set for a specific slot in the domain file. It will set the slot’s initial value for any instance of the slot.

It sounds like @wvalverde67 wants to set user-specific values (meaning: different for each user/instance of the slot), whereas initial_value is the same for that slot for any conversation. Does that make sense?
