Saving Favorites in a bot

(carl.cuchetti) #1

Is there a way for a user to save a favorite configuration - say they spec’d a computer through a bot and selected a 160G hard drive and 8G of memory - is there a way for them to save this work and return to it later? I know you can set alerts, but this would be different.

Sure - as long as the underlying data model doesn’t change out from under you it should be pretty easy to identify the unique details of the user’s session, convert them to a string (idk, maybe some JSON), save it in some semi-permanent storage layer, and then reuse it later. Websites do this all the time with session cookies.

Thanks! that’s helpful.

The creator of RadBots (Ads for Chatbots) just came out with their next product. PersonaDB A cloud database for chatbots. It would be exactly the thing you need.
