Creating Messenger Bots
To create a bot for a Facebook page, you will need to use the Bot Launcher. The Bots Launcher tool is located in the Chatbots section. Open the Welcome message tab below the Bots Launcher to access it.
By clicking on the text window, you can edit and adjust the automated message sent by the bot and customize it according to your needs. In addition, you can keep or delete the dancing bot’s gif.

If you want to add the name of the button that will appear in Messenger’s bot, click the trigger icon and edit it.
Let’s see an example. The visitor clicks the bot button to trigger the bot so that when someone clicks on the start button inside the Messenger window, the visitor will see the bot with the decision buttons. The visitor will now be able to select the bot to trigger next.
Take a look at how it appears on the visitor’s site in the Messenger window:
