Connecting data sources to a chatbot with Interfaces


This post was split from the topic:

 

I see “coming soon” under connecting data sources to the chatbot in the Interface. Do you guys know when that feature will become available? I would really love to start using it for my company.

Hi @strikepoint, welcome to the Community! 👋

Good news! The Chatbot component is available to use in Interfaces right now. 😁

You can find out more about how to use it here: How to create a custom AI chatbot with Zapier Interfaces

Keen to ensure you’re all set here so please do let us know how you get on! 

@SamB 

 

I don’t believe his question was answered and I have the same one.

 

When will you be able to connect a Data Source to the ChatGPT bot?  It said coming soon, but it no longer says that.  Is it here?

Hi @strikepoint and @Makanalani!

We are working on connecting a data source to chatgpt in a Zap, you can learn a little more about that in @geo’s comment here. That said, I don’t know yet if or how this will extend to using the chatbot component in Interfaces. 

To summarize - we don’t have a specific date yet, but it is something that we’re working on. 

Hey, I’d like to receive updates for this feature, so I know as soon as it comes out. Is there a way i can do that without subscribing to all emails?

Hi there @imagnify,

You can easily reach out to our Zapier Interfaces team. Just click on this link: https://eap.zapier.app/interfaces and select "Feature Request" from the "Type of Feedback" dropdown.

They'll be more than happy to add you to the feature request.

Hopefully, this helps! 😊

Thank you- I will definitely be using this. I suddenly turned into a Zapier interfaces fangirl a week ago and I’m really excited to see the features you guys roll out.

AI Chatbots CANNOT yet connect to LIVE data sources like a Google Sheet or Google Doc, right?

In other words, a non-frozen file that is being edited in near-realtime so I don’t have to keep re-exporting and re-importing.

I also reached out to the Interfaces contact too.

^ I’m still wondering about this, and haven’t heard back from Interfaces team yet.

Does anyone know if Zapier AI Chatbot can work with a LIVE data source that’s updated in realtime?

Being able to have a conversation based on an evergreen document, as opposed to a frozen spreadsheet.

Hey @TORLEY, so sorry we missed your posts here previously! 

AI Chatbots CANNOT yet connect to LIVE data sources like a Google Sheet or Google Doc, right?

Yes that’s correct. Zapier Chatbots (which is now separate from Zapier Interfaces) currently only supports static, not live data sources.

Does anyone know if Zapier AI Chatbot can work with a LIVE data source that’s updated in realtime?

As mentioned above, live data sources are not currently supported with Zapier Chatbots.

That said, there’s an existing feature request tracking interest in having Zapier Tables added as a live data source which I can add your vote to if you’re interested? Just let me know if you are and I’ll get you added to that right away! 

But if it’s specifically Google Sheets or Google Docs that you want to use as a live data source then I’d suggest submitting a new feature request to the Chatbots team for that here: https://ai-chatbot-help.zapier.app/contact-us

Hope that helps to clarify things. 🙂
