IN THIS CHAPTER WE will script the conversations our B2B and B2C bots will have. We will break down the conversations into flows (sometimes called stories), and detail the entities we want to extract.

At a high level, here is the flow we would like to facilitate with both bots (Figure 16-1).
I have highlighted the PTOBot part in blue and the VacationBot part in peach. We will now outline the specific flows that compose the use case for each bot.
The first step we are going to take is exploring the different flows that compose our bots’ use cases.
