As of October 31, 2019 Microsoft no longer accepts new Skype Bot publishing requests. Also, if you have already created this bot, it will be limited to 100 users. You will not be able to publish your bot to a larger audience.
We've decided to end the support of the Microsoft Bot Framework in Bitrix24 Open Channels.
What does it mean?
It means that in the near future you won't be able to connect the Microsoft Bot Framework communication channel to Bitrix24 Open Channels anymore.
In a few months, all chatbots connected using the Microsoft Bot Framework (Skype, Slack, Kik, GroupMe, SMS, email, etc.) will be force disconnected.
What to do?
We recommend connecting another communication channel beforehand:
- Bitrix24 Live Chat
- Facebook messages
- Facebook comments
We're sorry for the inconveniences.
