  2. Synonyms - Enable simple contraction for Phrase Queries

    The multi-word synonyms appear to be quite straightforward. This is a known issue when use phrase synonyms and search by phrase queries.

    The elastic team explained it much better than me:

    https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/master/multi-word-synonyms.html#_use_simple_contraction_for_phrase_queries

    The idea is to inject a single term that represents all synonyms.

    Could you enable something like that into QnA?

    Thanks

  3. If a user enter a meta data that doesn't exist in kb the Generate Answer Api responds with 500

    If a user enters metadata that doesn't exist in kb the Generate Answer API responds with 500 internal server error and a very generic error message that may occur in any case if the API has accessibility issue.
    It should return an appropriate response code other than 500.As its not an internal server error i beleive its something like 404 or even 200 with no match found in kb something like that.
    You guys should handle this exception.

  5. Option to preserve QnA KB training during KB source refreshes.

    Offer a feature to preserve QnA KB training during source refreshes. Today it appears all training is lost when you refresh the source data.

  9. Support for Markdown data sources

    Plain markdown is an increasingly popular format for storing documentation. It would be awesome if QnA Maker could extract content and form Q/A pairs from plain markdown files (.md) using the same rules as semi-structured .pdf or .docx files.

    In particular, this would make it very easy to use QnA Maker on top existing wikis in Github or Azure Repos, because these are really just a collection of .md files.

  10. QnA App Insights analytics results mis-match the user's results

    The QnA Analytics AI query often logs a different answer in the results than was actually shown to the user on the front end screen. This makes evolving the bot difficult as I cannot trust the answers in the query.

  11. Add support for "no code" Suggested Actions/quick replies (like up to three replies for each Answer).

    Add support for "no code" Suggested Actions/quick replies (like up to three replies for each Answer). This would allow for multi turn dialogs and put QnA Maker on par with Dialogflow.

    I have seen two articles which look like I can build this into the bot in Azure, but making it easy to do in the QnA Maker GUI would be a homerun.

    See this article: https://blog.botframework.com/2017/08/25/qna-maker-rich-card-attachments-net/

    And this one: https://blog.botframework.com/2017/09/28/qna-maker-revisited-suggested-actions-app-insights/

  12. Allow user to define priority or weights of knowledge base files

    For example, users might adjust chit-chat over normal knowledge question and answers. Google has that feature in its dialogflow that the weight / preference of small talk(chit-chat)
    over QA can be fine tuned by user.

  13. Replace KnowlegdeBase thorugh a File url

    I want to replace the existing knowledge base, and I have a new KB base in my excel file which I want to use to replace the existing QnA.

    Its strange a bit that replaces knowledge base API does not support URL parameter, but only QnA List. I tried it on the API console. Can someone update the API so that would be more useful than just passing a manuel QnA list.

    Thanks in advance

  15. Better French support with articles

    Hi,

    QnA Maker (runtime 4.2) in french has scoring issues when in a question we swap an article with another. The sentence has exactly the same the meaning but the score drops of 20-30 points.

    In French, we can easily swap articles ”le”, ”la”, ”un”, ”une”, ”les”, ”des ”, ” l’ ”, ” d’ ” etc…

    For exemple :
    ” c’est quoi une voiture ? ” has the same meaning of “c’est quoi la voiture ? ”

    You can find a screenshot with a quick test. Swapping English article ”the” by “an” has no scoring incidence but the score drops…

  16. local file uri path is not accepted in the createknowledge API. It should accept it.

    It should be supported to upload a local file from the local path. for example:

    {
    "name": "QnA Maker FAQ",
    "qnaList": [],
    "urls": [],
    "files": [
    {
    "fileName": "Traindataset_0.xlsx ",
    "fileUri": "file:///C:/Users/vivek.jain/Desktop/Work/fuerVivek/Trainingsdatensatz"
    }
    ]
    }

    in the moment, its return the code 400 code with following message:

    {
    "error": {
    "code": "BadArgument",
    "message": "Invalid input. See details.",
    "details": [{
    "code": "ValidationFailure",
    "message": "File name must be a valid name with extension.",
    "target": "Files[0].FileName"
    },
    {
    "code": "ValidationFailure",
    "message": "File Uri has one or more invalid uri.",
    "target": "Files[0].FileUri"
    }
    ]
    }
    }

  17. Switching multi KB function (Master bot)

    Most company have many category of Q&A knowledgebase.
    It is easy way to response correct answer that we prepare multi KBs and bots.
    But, it means many bot users be on chat tool. It looks so busy.

    I need master bot account and switching function via conversation.

  18. Better support for IE 11

    Added QnA pair texts aren't rendered properly on IE11 when the text is long. The textbox doesn't wrap long texts so the question text goes over the answer text. (ScreenShot attached) This makes it extremely difficult for the user to see the text. This doesn't happen on Edge broswers. Some of our users still use Windows 8.1 and they can't install other browsers due to corp policy.

  19. Better Norwegian language support

    Do you have any plans of implementing query matching and relevance for the norwegian language? This is a feature that would be greatly appreciated!
