The welcome interactions and integrations
Be careful while using LiveChat integration as the welcome interaction might get duplicated. LiveChat generates its own welcome message that is set up within the app. Your client may receive two welcome messages: one from ChatBot and one from LiveChat. You can disable the welcome interaction to avoid the problem.
