You can also name your chatbot as per your choice.
Now after you enter the bot builder you will find two options and they are as follows:

Now you need to enter your desired message. There is a folder by default that has that common welcome message. You can change it or leave it as it is.
If you want to add a new dialogue then click on ‘Add Dialogue’ from the left panel and add then dialogue.
a) I am adding ‘What is a Chatbot’ and click on save to save your question.
