On a side note,
We have recently launched forum for Freshworks developer community (https://community.developers.freshworks.com). We encourage all the developers to discuss queries, ambiguities, know-hows, and points of interest with fellow app developers and Freshworks’ engineers on the forum. We will involve the stakeholders directly on the forum topic to help you get your answers quicker.
