Using Microsoft Azure ML Studio Prompt Flow for classification tasks

Azure ML Prompt Flow stands out as a remarkably versatile tool that serves a multitude of purposes, especially in enhancing how chatbots interact with users. Consider a scenario where a user asks a chatbot a question, anticipating a precise and relevant response. For the chatbot to deliver an accurate answer, its first task is to "understand" the essence of the question posed. This preliminary step involves the chatbot's ability to dissect the query and classify it accurately into a specific category and subcategory. This classification is crucial because it determines the pathway the chatbot will follow to fetch or formulate an appropriate response.
Let's delve into how to make such Prompt Flow in Azure ML.
