Predefined Intents in Watson Assistant

"Greetings" and "Thank you" are one of the intent that is being created in every workspace in Watson Assistant. We do have predefined intents such as welcome,anything_else, true, false etc. Adding Greetings & Thank you to that list as predefined intents will make developers life easier!

    There is #General_Greetings and #General_Positive_Feedback in the Content Catalog already.

    I think the difference I see between the Aug 4 question and the Aug 24 response is that while there are predefined intents that I can turn on (#General_Greetings) with IBM Watson Assistant , there are not predefined responses ready-to-go in the dialog.  Unlike other bot dialog builders, if you turn on their predefined greetings, the bot can immediately respond to lots of friendly greetings.  Thanks!
