If you're seeing this, fill out the request to install, and once it is approved, Slackbot will send you a message:

I'm not seeing the setup form

If you're seeing this instead, move on directly to the Add Billy to a channel documentation page.
This is because you have a lot of channels in your Slack workspace and Billy can't load them all.
