  1. Install the Webchat Plugin
  2. Tell the Webchat to display it

For installing the plugin, please follow this guide. Finally, one can use a Say Node in order to tell the Webchat that it should display a specific Webchat Plugin with a related configuration.

    "size": "medium",
    "variant": "heart", 
    "maxRatingValue": 5,
    "precision": 1, 
    "rateButtonText": "Send Rating"
