|Expect User Utterance||The expected user utterance in this node|
|Select from intent list||Select from an intent template|
|Save to intent list||Save the current intent as an intent template|
|Are slots expected?||Are we going to extract a slot value(s) from the user utterance?|
|Description||Some comments about this intent (optional)|
|After the user message arrives||If needed, reset slot value based on the user utterance|
Continue to the user utterance node and select

There are five different kinds of replies a bot can make:
- Text : Send a text message to the user
- Image : Send a text message with images
- Attachment : Append an attachment
- Webhook : Call a webhook
- Action : Run an action Python code
We can add multiple lines of texts to the bot response node or add another bot response node after the current one.
The bot response node adds multiple text responses, as shown in the figure.
The implementation method of adding another bot response node after the current one is shown in the figure.
