Change notifications on Slack and Discord

Distill integrates with third party services to send instant change notifications. Integrations for Slack and Discord use webhooks. This is a premium feature which is available to all paid customers. To configure webhook actions, checkout following steps.

Slack Incoming Webhook

Checkout https://api.slack.com/messaging/webhooks#getting_started to create an incoming webhook URL for a channel. Once you have followed the steps, you should get a URL that looks like this:
