Commands for Vtiger CRM Bot

For the bot to fetch information from the CRM, you must provide specific commands.

Vtiger CRM bot supports the following commands:

  • /vtiger_contacts *keyword* - Fetches records from Contacts module based on the keyword.
  • /vtiger_deals *keyword* - Fetches records from Deals module based on the keyword.
  • /vtiger_tasks *keyword* - Fetches records from Tasks module based on the keyword.
  • /vtiger_events *keyword* - Fetches records from Events module based on the keyword.
  • /vtiger_cases *keyword* - Fetches records from Cases module based on the keyword.
  • /vtiger_search *Module name* *keyword* - Searches records from other modules. For example - /vtiger_search Articles Projects
  • @Vtiger CRM help - Provides a list of all the commands for your reference.

Only the current command pattern works with the Vtiger CRM bot. If you provide commands in different patterns, the bot displays the list of all acceptable commands.

Once you provide the command to the Vtiger CRM bot, it searches the CRM and fetches the information. There are three possibilities:

  • If there is only one record for the given keyword, then the bot will display the key fields of that record. You can click View to see more details of that record. 
  • If there are multiple records for the given keyword, the bot will display the name of all the records. You can click View to see more details of a particular record. 
    • Only 20 recently modified records are displayed per page.
  • If there are no records for the given keyword, the bot will display a ‘No records found’ message.
 

Note: You can use the Vtiger CRM bot in Google Chats only if you are an active CRM user. If not, you will be asked to sign up for the CRM.
