Welcome message when running `rasa shell`


I would like to display a welcome message of type “Hello I’m your personal assistant” anytime rasa shell is run. I’ve been following this post but I’m not sure if I implemented it well. Once the custom action is defined to I need to specify the action_session_start at the beginning of every stories in my stories.md? I would rather not do that as I have many stories. Any idea on how to send a welcome message?



No need to specify action_session_start at the beginning any story. The action is automatically executed when the chatbot starts.
