Here are the different kinds of notifications you can receive in Slack:

New lead

This notification is triggered when your Continually bot captures a new lead email.

New appointment

This notification is triggered when a customer books an appointment through your bot.

Anonymous lead

This notification is triggered when a new customers uses your bot. The reason it is an anonymous lead and not a "new lead" is because the email has not yet been captured.

Note: Anonymous lead notifications are disabled by default, you will need to go to your Slack preferences and enable it. Read the section below to find out how.

Live chat

You can receive notifications for any live chat messages your customers send.

Note: You cannot control your notifications for live chat in the notifications section, it can only be disabled by turning off live chat.
