Hey @pradeepkumaresan

I understand the current documentation for the autocomplete feature is not sufficient. I’ve informed the team to update the documentation ASAP.

Thanks!

Hey @pradeepkumaresan
Can you please share more details about the use case?

@pratik,
There are list of countries. Customer need to select one of the available countries.
To avoid typo error, if we can able to provide auto complete option in web chatbot, it would be easy for customer.

The function you select in the prompt setting to autocomplete using, should resolve (return) an array of items you wish to be shown in autocomplete.

In most cases, this is pretty dynamic so people use results returned from a DB to create an array in function mostly; but for static items, you can directly do that too.

For your usecase, you can use this code snippet

return new Promise(resolve => {
    let result = ["India", "USA", "Canada", "UK"]; // list of countries you want to suggest
    const {term} = data;
    let suggestions = []
        result.forEach((hit) => {
            if (hit.component.toLowerCase().includes(term.toLowerCase())) {
                suggestions.push([hit.component, hit.component])
            }
        });
      resolve(suggestions);
  }); 

I have used question node by calling the function by the code you provide with and without ticking the select boxes . Still it’s not working. I have attached the screenshot .

Function not calling on question prompt node.

Can you send a video of autocomplete work. So that i can verify.
Thanks
