  1. Answers that reference real time database.

    We would like some method of being able to return real time data by making API calls in the answer. This would allow us to provide customers with real time schedule information in a chat window.

    Allowing for the answer to be variable would open up a whole new world of possibilities with this product.

    • ability to search KB

      It would be nice if there were some way to search the items in the KB so I can update them selectively without hunting through the whole set for relevant items.

          • QnA Maker should understand Language Semantically

            it should have a dictionary of English words and their linkages as a knowledge base which can be enabled or disabled by the client. This would remove the requirement of adding multiple utterances for the same question.

              • QnAMaker Pricing Tier launch date and features

                Hi, We are leveraging QnAMaker API to develop a knowledge bot. However, we have few outstanding queries related to the upcoming pricing tier. Request you to provide response to the following:
                1. Currently, maximum data limit per KB is 20 MB. Can we increase this limit within the free premium tier even if there’s a payment clause for the same?
                2. Will KB limit be increased from 20 MB once pricing plan gets activated for QnA Maker API?
                3. By what date Microsoft will launch Pricing tier for QnA Maker API?
                4. What will happen to Basic & Premium free…

                      • Add writeable/readable metadata JSON field for storing additional information (categories, tags, hints, notes, etc).

                        Add an attribute to questions and answers where users could store metadata. This could be a JSON field that is writable/readable via API and would enable users to build custom functionality on top of QnA Maker.

                        Examples include:
                        - categorizing or tagging questions and answers
                        - adding alternate versions of the questions and answer (for instance, a short version to show over SMS)
                        - storing IDs or attributes from other systems
                        - attach image urls or other useful meta data
                        - and so much more!

                        This would allow for a ton of customization and solve a number of the existing…

                        • API to view QnA pairs which have been added via Active Learning

                          When a new pair is created via Active Learning there is no easy way to view it.

                          There should be an easier way to validate and approve new pairs other than the standard [Publish] -> [View Diff] approach, whether it is via an API call or a separate "Active Learning/Train API" source within the Knowledge Base.

                          Currently a new pair is added beneath the question it is based upon, which becomes problematic when working with large knowledge bases with many changes being applied both manually and through Active Learning.

                          • add an Editor role

                            Since we IT people don't want to tweak content I want to give permissions to editors of content. They should be able to se the logs, train the bot, upload files (more then five of course) and add stuff.

                                    We want to embed the Q&A maker in our programmed conversation flow. In order to obtain the flexibility we need, we would like to be able to extend/override the "No match" handling. We want the behavior to depend on the state of our conversation.

                                        • For a given question, show multiple answers (related answers)

                                          For a given question, I'd like to give the primary answer, and then supply one or more followup answers. I don't want to put the additional answers in the primary answer, because those answers will also be used for other questions, and I don't want to duplicate questions.

                                          For example:
                                          Q. Where do I log my time?
                                          A. You can find the timesheet application here: http://xyz

                                          Q. Where do I get support for the timesheet application?
                                          A. For trouble with timekeeping, send an email to helpdesk@xyz

                                          If someone asks the first question, I'd like to supply both answers. For example:

                                          13 votes

                                          (thinking…)
                                          Reset
