  2. 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…

  4. Give option to increase number of Alternatives in Chatlog based training

    Give option to increase number of Alternatives in Chatlog based training. The current three is far too small for many questions.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. API to provide Chat logs

    Currently there is no API method to retrieve chat logs. Providing access to chat logs via API will enable us to get the top questions which are asked.

  12. Make the "No match" handling extendable/overridable

    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.

  15. 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:

  16. Is there any way to upgrade the pricing to standard instead of free

    Limiting to 10,000 transactions a month is somewhat poor.

  17. Having an option to add synonyms in QnA maker would be helpful

    If synonyms can be configurable, it would help to interpret domain specific keywords in a better way.

  18. Need a way to customize look and feel of the QnA chat widget

    Right now, the QnA chat box can only be embedded as an iframe, AFAIK. Would be great to

    1). Be able to make it a chat overlay widget that stays persistent to scrolling at, say, the bottom right portion of the screen (like Intercom.io or Olark)

    2) Also would be nice to be able to style and/or customize the appearance of the chatbox. Mine just says, "Chat" at the top. Would be nice to be able to change this message to a more welcoming message and to change colors, fonts, etc.

  19. Better relational training for QnA PAairs

    Training the bot - either adding new phrasing or changing the response for a given question, results in an additional QNA pair being created. This can create an unmaintainable mess, because questions and answers are now duplicated, and if any updates are made to KB content, you have to find and update all of the duplicate pairs.

    Change the training process to add a relational aspect; add multiple question phrasings to a single answer, rather than duplicating the entire pair.

  20. Option to categorize the Q&A

    There should be an option to categorize the Q&A. Currently it is interactive based on users input, but when we extend to different departments/LOBs same question could trigger different responses.
