Chatting with “Alex”: Tips and best practices
Here are some tips and best practices we recommend you follow to help ensure you have a quick and productive chat with “Alex”.
1. Enter your question or the issue you're encountering in just a few words. “Alex” is more likely to get confused and not understand questions that are lengthy and have extensive text.
2. Wait for “Alex” to respond to you and then select from one of the options presented if applicable. This will help prevent “Alex” from restarting or repeating the same question or statement.
3. If there are no options presented and “Alex” has asked you to provide more information or to enter another question, then please type your message. As noted above, we advise doing so with just a few words.
