For example, if someone is looking for questions related to the invoice, the questions can be where can I see the invoice, how to change the address of the invoice, how do I get a duplicate copy of the invoice, etc. These questions are closely related to the invoice, but they require different answers. By creating different answers for questions related to the invoice, it will be easier for the chatbot to respond to the related questions. With more feeds, it will become easier for chatbots to understand the nuance of the question and answer the same.
