Below are 3 examples for use cases that benefit from structured data entry in a chatbot conversation.
· Sensitive information such as credit card numbers that should not be displayed in the messenger’s conversation history.
· For users to enter or edit a large amount of information that otherwise would result in very long chatbot conversations
· When the messenger does not provide convenient user interface to guide users (e.g. a calendar picker or dependent list-of-values)
