Private Chat with a Bot in RocketChat

Hi,

we’re currently successfully using our Bot in a general channel in RocketChat.

However, the bot doesn’t react if messaged directly in a one-to-one channel (privately).

Is it the intended design and is there a way to change that?

We’d like our users to speak to the bot privately without other users seeing their coversation.

I would be very thankful for any help or information on the subject.

Cheers, Maria
