I’m working on a new channel for Intercom. The service receive and forward messages between Intercom and 3th party chat app. When agent reply to chat, we receive related webhook and forward it to external app. There are cases, when we can’t forward the message (e.g. external service is down, or respond an error for particular user). Is there a way to notify agent about problem with sending particular message?

Hi @Andrii Fedyk ! Ebenezer here from Engineering Support👋.

Do you mean through the system status?

This site shows all of the services and their downtime.

We don’t have an in-built function to alert users when a service is down.
