Rasa version: 1.10.3 Rasa-SDK: 1.10.1 Python 3.7.7
Hello! I am relatively new to Rasa Open source and am trying to integrate a chatbot into Slack. Currently, I have a custom action that takes ~10 seconds to run and return information to the user due to having to call a lot of APIs. As such, I am hoping to first send an instant message back to the user like “This will take a few seconds” and then proceed to execute the action and then send the second message.
I tried a variety of methods to achieve this but every method results in both messages being sent at the same time. These methods include sending dispatcher messages on different threads and using the slackclient web_client.
Any guidance would be much appreciated!
