Install WeChat on SleekFlow

Navigate to Channels.

Click the "Add" button next to WeChat.

You will be directed to this screen, in which the system will fill in the "Webhook URL" and "Verification Token" automatically.

You have to fill in the "Channel Name",  "App ID", "App Secret" and upload the QR code to install.

Channel name

Insert a name for this WeChat Channel for your team to better recognize this channel.

Use names such as "Sales Team", "Support Team", "Marketing Team for Guangdong" for better recognition.

 

 

App ID

From the WeChat Dashboard, go to the "Basic Configuration | 基本配置" page from the left column. You can find this below the “Development | 开发”.

On the “Basic Configuration | 基本配置” page, you will be able to find your “App ID | 开发者ID”.

Go ahead and paste the App ID on the “SleekFlow Channels Page” we just opened.

App Secret

On the same "Basic Configuration | 基本配置" page, to generate the App Secret | 开发者密码, you have to pass two verification steps.

You have to scan a QR code on the webpage. After that, you need to re-enter your account password.
