Building Intuitive Conversational Bots using n8n for workflow automation

This article discusses n8n, an extendable workflow automation tool, and a use case building an intuitive conversational bot for businesses at Intuitive Code. Learn what n8n is, how to install, benefits, get started, and what you can do.

What's n8n

n8n (pronounced n-eight-n) helps you to interconnect every app with an API in the world with each other to share and manipulate its data without a single line of code. It is an easy to use, user-friendly and highly customizable service, which uses an intuitive user interface for you to design your unique workflows very fast. Hosted on your server and not based in the cloud, it keeps your sensible data very secure in your own trusted database.


There are a few different ways to set up n8n depending on how you intend to use it:

n8n benefits

  • Free and open: with a fair-code license, you can run n8n totally free no matter if you’re in the bedroom or boardroom
  • Easily extendable: Create your own nodes to integrate third‑party services or in-house tools.
  • Your data stays with you: run n8n locally or in the cloud. You decide who gets access and keep the full control of your data.

What can you do with n8n?

Sync data between 200+ apps

Move and transform data between different apps and databases without getting caught up in API docs and troubleshooting CORS errors.

Design powerful workflows

Go beyond ETL: start with simple no-code flows and add javascript functions, conditional logic, or custom http requests in a snap.

Create custom integrations

Design bespoke nodes for a proprietary CRM, endpoints for your product, or any other software, and empower your marketing and ops teams to create their own workflows.

How to get started?

I suggest that you get started by installing the desktop app. Then, you might wish to try the cloud version, currently in beta.

Our choice is the hosted solution. In addition to all the features of n8n, it provides added benefits such as:

  • No technical set up or maintenance for your n8n instance
  • 24/7 uptime monitoring
  • Managed OAuth for authentication
  • Easy upgrades to the newest n8n versions

How to use?

They have a tutorials section divided into three components, blog posts, videos, and community tutorials.

Use case: A conversational bot to register on Discord

An intuitive conversational bot to register users on your Discord community. The Intuitive bot contains multiple nodes

In addition, you can create nodes to
