Set Up

Before installing the assistant widget on your docs website, you need to get set up. DocWhizz set up includes:

  1. Setting up sources - DocWhizz is a retrieval augmented generation system (RAG). You need to feed our systems with the technical know-how to handle questions from your audience effectively.
  2. Configuring branding - Ensure you assistant widget aligns with your branding and company styles.
  3. Managing settings and security - Finally some of the boring but important stuff. Add authorized URLs, custom instructions, reCAPTCHA and your own OpenAI key for unlimited questions.


DocWhizz is a system that helps answer questions by combining search and language generation. To get started, you need to add the technical info it needs. DocWhizz searches through this info and then uses language models to generate the answers. You can easily manage the data sources using the DocWhizz dashboard.

Setting up sources

To set up sources, simply navigate to the sources section in your dashboard:

  1. Click on the 'Add URL' button
  1. Enter the URL of your docs site and click the 'Fetch URL' button to get all the pages on your docs site.
  1. Select all the relevant URLs you want to train your assistant with.

Once this is done, all the selected URLs will be queued for training. You can see the training status in your dashboard.

Managing Sources

After initially training your assistant, you may end up making updates to your documentation. To ensure that your assistant is trained on the latest information you can either:

  1. Retrain all the sources you have set up - simply click the 'Retrain All' button at the top of the sources page.
  1. Select the specific sources that you have changed and click on 'Retrain Selected' to only train those pages.
