Step 2, set up a title and optionally a subtitle below. Then you can add up to 3 buttons with the plus sign button below the subtitle.

When a user's comment fulfils the matching strategy, one is tagged with the labels selected with the bot rule. With these labels, you can better understand and re-engage your customers in the future easily.

If you want the Bot apply to all posts of your account, choose "APPLY TO ALL"

Create IG Live Bot

In "Bot" section, you can find "IG Live Bot" tab. Creating an IG Live Bot is largely the same as Post Bot as explained above, where you can set up keyword matching strategy and auto reply, as well as its active time. However, due to the API limitation, only private reply is allowed and it is time-based instead of post-based.

To avoid message spamming, each rule of Post Bot and IG Live Bot only triggers once to each user. For example, when a user repeat the message on IG Live, if criteria matched, the user will receive the auto reply once only.
