Anyone tried setting a slot via API before the first message? ie. i want to set the users ID and name slots and then send the first message to rasa so it knows how to respond.
If i do that, it always sends a blank response on the first message and i have to send it again to get the expected response.
It would be great if there was a way to send messages to Rasa with additional metadeta. For instance, send the first message along with the user information so it can fill slots and formulate a proper response.
