Keywords no matter where

Is there a way, voiceflow can detect keywords in the user-input no matter where they are in the text? Like in library searches where you can type Goethe to find any title that contains the word “Goethe” no matter where it appears? that would be really useful for me.

Can you describe the exact use case in Voiceflow you’re thinking about? Have you tried using Global Intents?

sure. We are trying to build a conversational agent for a theatre piece. Spectators will be rather free in interacting with the agent (compared to the examples I see here). We want to fish for certain trigger words that will lead to an emotional interplay. For example “sad” or “dark”, somewhere in the input should trigger an intent of “lets go into sad themes”. The words could appear anywhere in the user input, that is our problem.
