Collecting comments on posts in the channel
The service can collect users' native comments on posts in the channel.
Comments.bot is not supported.
Step 1. For the correct collection of comments from the channel to the service, you need to make a number of settings beforehand.
First of all, findBotFatherin Telegram
- if the bot is not created, create it following the instructions, using the command /newbot
Please note that replies to your customers will be sent on behalf of the Telegram bot, so when choosing a name and username for the bot, we recommend making them closer to your brand.
We have the following:
It is possible to change the Bot Name through @BotFather settings, username is not changed.
- if the bot already exists, write the command /mybots and select the required one
- go to the bot settings (Bot Settings)
- check that the ability to add bots to groups (Allow Groups) is enabled (it is usually enabled by default).
- Go to the privacy settings (Group Privacy) and disable the bot's privacy mode. This is an important condition for the correct collection of service requests.
Make sure Discussion is enabled in your channel. You can do this in Telegram under Settings - Manage Channel - Discussions.
You need to connect a group chat to the channel, which will collect users' messages and what you post in the channel.
Step 2. Add a bot to the group chat linked to the discussions.
If you want to moderate all requests via the service, including deleting user comments in the chat, you should give the bot Admin rights. This can be done under Settings - Group Management - Admins. Make sure the bot has rights to delete posts and ban members:
If Admin rights are not granted, you won't be able to delete messages and ban users out of the service, but the collection of appeals and responses to them will work correctly.
Step 3. In Angry.Space, the bot is connected using a token on theSettings - Social profiles page.
To get your bot's token, go to the chat withBotFatherin Telegram, select the bot you want and go to the API Token section.
By default, comments from the channel go to the general dialog in the "Messages" section, so for convenience, we recommend checking the "Process group chat messages as comments" checkbox.
You can also add your own stickerpacks using them in replies from Angry.Space.
To do this, you need to specify a link to the required stickerpack and click the Add button.
