Push message title/body parameterized from trigger payload.

I can't seem to find from documentation how to parameterize title and body of PUSH notifications to FCM using trigger's payload (or other override...). Can you tell if and how I can do that and if it is even possible, because without possibility of passing title/body from the trigger'ing service this push integration is not very usefull for our usecase. Thanks for any pointers or help with this issue.

Possible to only use local notifications

I've had my eyes on Novu for a long time, and now we are evaluating it for a client project.

At the moment, we only want to have a notification center in the app to show toasts triggered from within the app. Like, when saving something. But in the future we would like to be able to implement the advanced features that Novu offers.

My question is: It possible to use Novu only in the web app to use the notification center ad trigger local notifications from within the app? Similar to this funct...

Team Notifications

Hey, Im looking to implement team notifications / Workflow

Users (have a userID) can be part of 0, 1 or multiple teams (teams have a team ID)

2) A users notification feed consists of all notifications from teams they belong to and any personal notifications.
3) A team member reading a team notification wouldn't mark as read for rest of team

Deployment via Kubernetes on AWS EKS

4. git clone <novu-repo>
5. cd docker/kubernetes/helm
6. Tried to install the Chart.yaml file:

helm install novu-test .

TriggerTopicAsync slows down

Hi novu-Community,

first of all congrats to the relaunch of the documentation - looks awesome!

We have self-hosted novu in our Kubernetes-Cluster on Azure. During setup we recognize that the helm chart, that you have in your Git is not published, so we copied it over (would be helpful for new customers, that the helm chart is published somewhere)

After deploying it to our cluster we did some testing and measured time of the _novuClient.Event.TriggerTopicAsync call and saw that the time incr...

Implementing unsubscribe links with SendGrid as email provider

It appears from the code in sendgrid.provider.ts that there isn't an option to send the ASM group id which would enable SendGrid managed unsubscribe links. Is there a way to implement unsubscribe links via SendGrid? If not, what is the approach with Novu? We would have to build a bespoke subscriber preferences page?

How to connect Slack Bot (not Webhook)?

Hi there, I've read the documentation on how I can overload the Slack integration to Novu but my organization has a different use case, where we want to integrate Slack Bot, which uses bot token (not incoming webhook URL) to send the messages. We want to go for Slack Bot instead of Slack Webhook because we have the following use cases:

- Let our customers configure the channels where they want to receive the notification (allow them to reconfigure channels in future as well).
- Send DM to a use...
