Step 1: Setting Up Your xChat Account

If you haven’t already, sign up for an xChat account by following this link: xChat. Once you've created your account, log in to access the xChat platform.

Step 2: Creating Your Website Chatbot Project

In the xChat dashboard, click the “New space” button on the left side panel. Give your space a descriptive name, such as "Website Chatbot." Select a color for your newly created space and click Create.

Step 3: Uploading Content for Your Chatbot

Next, create a new Repository and upload the content you want your chatbot to use. This could include FAQs, product information, work information, business information, service descriptions, and any other relevant documents. Click “Upload files” to upload your files, or click “Add links” if your file comes from a website. You can also import materials with supported software integrations like Google Drive and Notion under “Import from other software.” These files will serve as the basis for training your AI chatbot.

Step 4: Training Your AI Chatbot

Once your files are uploaded, it will take 5 minutes or less for xChat to analyze the content of your files and create a customized AI model tailored to your website's needs. If you need to add more files, you can click “Add Data” on the left side panel of the xChat platform.

Step 5: Interacting with Your AI Chatbot

After training is complete, you can start interacting with your AI chatbot. Use the chat interface in xChat to test your chatbot's responses. Ask it questions, provide feedback, and ensure it understands your content correctly.
