IMPORTANT: Please don't forget to remove the original Javascript code you installed on your site for this provider. HelpKit automatically loads this for you so you don't need to load it manually yourself as well. Doing so will cause issues. If you passed custom settings or user properties to this provider via the original Javascript code and you are not sure whether they will be carried through to your HelpKit setup, then please contact us.
