How to set response timer to IVR bot?

Posted on by 1,152
Hello Experts,
I have created a IVR bot in Omnichannel-Dynamics 365. This bot requests the user to enter the option like, press 1 for sales, press 2 for service, press 3 for support. 
How can i ask the same question again for 3 times if user didnt respond in 10 seconds?
Please check the below bot topic:
Thanks for your help in advance.

    You can also create a separate inactivity/session timeout topic and redirect to your original topic. You could set that number very low via the formula option. You might be able to track the repeats in a global number variable as well.
    Below are the docs of the inactivity trigger:

    Below is an example setup

    1. IVR Topic

    2. Inactivity Topic

    3. Test Run

    I haven't seen this in regular Copilot.  Instead, in Bot Framework Composer.  You can read more on  Basically, there's some code that will put wait times and repeat the message.
