Currently Emotions are only available inTeneo Studio Desktop


Conversational AI applications, such as chatbots and virtual assistants, might use graphics to reveal emotions appropriate to the conversation.

If the AI application has this capability, Emotions should be assigned to the answer in the solution. When creating a new solution, the user will have to create a set of Emotions which can be assigned to the answers later.

If the user creates Emotions and assign them to Output nodes in a solution, the net effect will be zero if the conversational AI application does not have the required graphics to display Emotions.
