Destination#

A destination is where the content is finally published after all the processing is complete as per the instructions set inside the connection. Just like source, destination can be various different channels, groups, chats from your platform account. Every connection must have at least one destination, and you can also set many different destinations to one single connection. These destinations can be from same or different accounts or platforms.
