- How to add new administrators to the chat?
There could be only one administrator of the chat.
- How to link Telegram group/supergroup with the web chat?
Add @ChatbroBot to the group. Bot will send a link via a personal message, by which you can link the web chat and the Telegram group/supergroup.
- How to link the Telegram channel with the web chat?
Add @ChatbroBot to the selected channel as an administrator and type “/sync” in the channel. The bot will send a link for synchronization.
- I can not add the bot to the channel
Use the desktop version of Telegram. Add the bot as an administrator (you can not add the bot as a common user).
- Is your service suitable for broadcasting the Telegram channel to the website?
Our service is great for this. To send messages to one side (channel -> web chat), configure the web chat so that it does not allow sending messages. Additionally, you can configure the bot so that it can not write to the channel.
- How to remove the synchronization of the web chat with a group/conversation?
There are a couple of ways to do this:
* Delete the bot from the conversation/group/supergroup/channel. Synchronization will be automatically deleted, an alert will be sent to the private messages.
* In the chat editor in the “Synchronization with messengers” block, you can see all active links and delete it.
- Can I add my bot to synchronize messages?
You can add your bot. It will work just like the standard one and you will can to control over it. There are 2 types of bots: telegram and VK. VK bot is any empty or unused page in the social network. To add a bot, follow these steps:
2. Go to your profile using the site navigation.
3. Click the “Add your bot” button, select the bot type and enter the authorization data. Then click the “Add” button. If the data is correct, the bot will be added and automatically turned on.
