The assistant is always saying "how can I assist you today" at the end of each sentence, it sounds super annoying, even with prompting to tell it not to say that, it almost seems like the default sentence it should say at whenever it responds
Hi @Abed Malak, I'm an AI assistant for Vapi. I'll analyze available sources and get back to you shortly.

### Answer To address the behavior of the assistant consistently appending "how can I assist you today" to its responses, you may need to adjust the assistant's configuration. While the information sources provided do not directly address customizing this specific behavior, the assistant's behavior is largely determined by its model settings and the system prompt configured in your Vapi dashboard. Adjusting these settings can significantly alter how the assistant interacts. For detailed guidance on assistant configuration options, you might want to explore the documentation on creating and updating assistants for insights into customizing assistant behavior [(1)]() , [(2)]() . If the repetitive phrase is not part of the intended responses and persists despite adjustments, it might be embedded in the system prompt or another part of the assistant's configuration that's not immediately obvious. Reviewing the entire configuration for any unintended repetition or exploring more advanced customization options could help resolve this issue.
I can understand that the pain. Through prompting you can little bit tune it into something else.
