What This Rule Does

The WordPress Telegram Bot allows to send an SMS to one or multiple mobile phones for every group message. You can configure a series of filters, explained below.

  • Telegram group ID - Must follow the format "-xxxxxxxx" (the character "-" followed by nine numerals). You can acquire the ID by sending the text /getGroupId in the group chat or by checking the plugin log
  • Status - Set rule as active or paused
  • Sender name - Can only contain 11 characters or less. If it has more, the message will not be sent (due a restriction by Amazon). The sender name will appear in the SMS text message send to the phone number.
  • Send to phone number(s) - List all phone numbers that will receive the message. Include country code, but without the + symbol.

  • Stop word(s) - The rule will only run if it DOES NOT include ANY of these words
  • SMS message template - Supports placeholders (learn more). Note that Amazon limits the message to 256 characters (learn more)
