An utterance is what the user communicates to describe their intent.

What are utterances?

Utterances are phrases that a user would use to describe what they want to do. The bot tries to understand and identify the user’s intent from these utterances.

A user might say: I need a room for tomorrow. or I want to book a room for tomorrow. Both of these utterances convey the same intention: book a room for tomorrow. Another utterance might be: Book me a suite for three nights starting tomorrow.

When creating sample utterances, try to create variations and also with a wide range of semantics for each intent. It’s a good practice to create multiple variations of the same phrase. For example, create two utterances: book a room and reserve a room.

  2. Add more utterances to the intent, as needed.
