I have an incoming webhook that is being used to send direct messages to users as, for lack of a better term, “Alerts”, as an example when one of our labs completes a Testing Quotation or a Task, certain people should get a message through mattermost. Everything works as expected, except these messages show up in my direct message history. Is there a way to prevent this?
Some better questions might be,
- Is there a better design pattern here?
- Should I create a specific user for webhooks?
- Is this more like a bot?
Ultimately I would like to find a logical fix before my account gets inundated with hundreds of DM alerts a day.
