  5. Create several questions to one answer in Word document

    Just now, when you use a word document to create you knowledge base, the ingestion process creates a set of answer-question. To improve the quality of your training model, you have to go manually to QnA interface and add new questions associated to one answer.
    What we'd like to have is the ability to create a set of several questions for one answer from the Word Document. Something similar to:
    Question1#Question2#Question3#Question4#
    Answer1

    Thanks in advance for you help.

  6. QnA Maker welcome message

    One of the missing functionalities in QnA Maker is the welcome message from the bot. Whichever channel is used, there is no default welcome message to be provided in an easy way even though there are GitHub example and this confuses the end-user since there is no clear clue on what the KB is based on. Of course, there may be qna pairs taking care of this, but the first screen comes always blank. I think it would be great to have and customize such a welcome message either via the webapp or via the qnabot.cs file.

  7. Norwegian chit-chat support

    Are you planning to expand the supported languages for chit-chat? It's no realistic to create a qna-bot in another language, as long as the chit-chat support is not there. I'm waiting for Norwegian langauage-support.

  8. Do not reformat the answer upon saving

    When saving a knowledgebase, QnAMaker reformats the answer.
    - Additional \n characters are stripped (\n\n\n becomes \n\n) - The unicode non-breaking space character (U+00A0) is added. This character throws off most markdown implementations, resulting in incorrect rendering in e.g. Microsoft Teams.

  9. Setting to Disable "Create New" option from "Add Follow-up Prompt"

    We have a relatively static knowledge base, so creating a new question is a big deal and never should be done off-handedly within the user context of adding a follow up prompt. Every time this option has been invoked, it has been an accidental click that has duplicated an existing question.

    It would be nice to have a setting within the QnA Maker GUI that would disable the "Create New" option from within the "Add Follow-up Prompt" dialog.

    In the attached screenshare, you can see how trivial it is to inadvertently clone a question by selecting a follow up prompt…

  10. Auto language translation

    It will be perfect if it can understands the questions in whichever language, then find the answers from the KB and return with the 'asked' language, optionally combine the answers in default language.

    For example, I have KB in English, if the ask is in Japanese, it can understand and find the answer from the KB and return the answer in Japanese and the English (bilingual answer).

    This will help a lot for preparing the multilingual KB when the chatbot is globally deployed.

  11. Support all Emojis and Special characters input

    Hello,

    I have been working with Qna Maker from the past year on dozens of bots. And with the urge need of Facebook chatbot, we have come with the need to support all emojis (eg. hear doesn't work) and special characters input ("?", "!!", etc..)

    This is very important for chichat and improve user UX.

    Is there any list of supported emojis or special characters?

    Thank you

  13. Proper display of images while using follow-up promts

    If you want to have a image displayed in an answer and use one or more follow-up promts in that same answer, your image is displayed as zoomed in on. If you're not using any follow-up promts in your answer, the image is displayed properly. I guess this has something to do with HeroCards being used once you use follow-up promts in an answer. This should be fixed.

  14. Option to set a main Question

    There should be an option to set a main question phrase. Whenever I edit the question that is displayed at the top of the question list of a QnA pair, it automatically appears at the bottom of the question list of this QnA pair after saving. This is really frustrating if you want to work with proposed questions in your chatbot or are identifying the used context by the questions phrasing in QnA maker.
    Therefore there should be an option to set your top question phrase as "Main question", so it wont automatically jump to the bottom of the question…

  16. QnAMaker service region is set to West US as default

    We've faced this issue while we're creating QnaMaker Service on Azure portal into a resource group when we have a location restricted resource group policy on Azure.

    We're looking for only hosting services in North Europe or West Europe and Qna maker throws an error because of it's trying to create "QnAMaker Cognitive Service" to be hosted in West US.

    Due to subscription limitation we can not create a resource group supporting West US region, our subscription only requires Europe based regions.

    Please can you give an ability to QnAMaker Cognitive Service to pick location as well?

    I have a request from a customer to support the CSV format, not just JSON as the Content-Type of the REST API.

  18. Possibility to switch order of follow-up prompts

    Possibility to switch order of follow-up prompts. There should option to change the order of follow-up prompts. Currently if you don't do everything alphabetically you have to delete everything and do it again to get the order right.

  19. Feedback

    Is there a way to add feedback function when a chat ends or there's a certain keyword to trigger the feedback prompt? (like "Thanks"). Then have the feedback feed into azure and then create a query to pull the feedback table and information.

  20. download multipleknowledgebases with one get api call

    We have multiple knowledgebases in one cognitive service and want to retrieve all of them with one get api call.. currently this is not supported in qna Maker. Can we share multiple comma separated kbids and get the all data merged together in one shot. these will develop the performance as well and would be helpful to us.
