How to post into private channels

Publish reports and BI Messages into private channels by inviting the Kiwi bot into the private channel first.

When selecting the recipient for a report or BI message, Kiwi allows selecting any public channel or individual person. 

Initially, Kiwi won't be able to post into private channels, since Kiwi can not "see" that this channel exists. For Kiwi to be able to post into private channels, someone within the channel needs to invite the Kiwi bot into the channel either by clicking the "Invite more people" link or using this command:

/invite @kiwi

Afterward, the private channel is selectable as a recipient.  

Note: You can not post into a (private) conversation/direct message, even when Kiwi is part of the conversation.
