What it does
We decided to make a chatbot using BotKit for Cisco Webex Team Platform. The chatbot will have basic functionality to send and receive with the user. Some of the extended functionalities are weather, alarm, date and time, to-do list, chat using emoji corresponding to the users' mood, google search and youtube search.
How we built it
We started using Webex for Developer to create a bot. Then we connect it to BotKit. Then host it on ngrok server. With these 3 technologies, we successfully host and interact with the customized chatbot on Webex Team client.
Challenges we ran into
We had problems with hosting it online, finding a good editor for Webex chatbot and develop fully functional alarm.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are able to build a functioning chatbot on Webex Team client. The product proposes some useful functions to increase the productivity of users in the workplace.
What we learned
We learned new technologies, have fun chatting with chatbot and implement the project on Webex Platform.
What's next for HKTChatBot
We will strive to build more function and fully develop the chatbot.
