If you didn't install a bot template that already includes the skill you need, you need to first install the skill before you can use it. Use the following steps to install any skill.

  1. Go to the skills section
  2. Go to Browse
  3. Click on the skill you need
  4. Click on Install
  5. After installing, click on Purpose to activate the skill's CMS if applicable.

Notice that when a skill is dependent on another skill it will automatically install that skill too.
