To keep things tidy and accessible you can store all of your channel's information inside of your Intercom Messenger by adding buttons. It's going to look like this:

3. Pick Flexible list
4. Press Customize
5. Scroll down and press Add a button
6. Then fill in the necessary fields: Title, Button label and Button URL.
And press Add to Messenger home
7. Then if you're happy with the result - press Save and set live
