Gleam integrates with Telegram so you can create your own bots for verifying Telegram-related entries.
Telegram integration is available on the Business plan & above.
Simply navigate to Site Settings > Integrations then turn on Telegram.
You will need your API Token which can be found when you create a new Telegram bot using BotFather.
To create a Telegram bot, send BotFather a message on Telegram. Enter
start to show a list of commands available.
/newbot and follow BotFather's instructions for naming the bot:
When you're done, BotFather will give you an API token which you can enter into Gleam to connect the integration:
If you wish to access your API token in a new session, you can enter
/mybots to bring up the Bot management menu:
Once your Telegram integration is enabled, you can use your bot to perform action tracking for Join a Channel/Group on Telegram action.
The bot will check if an entrant has joined the specified Channel or Group on Telegram before awarding entries.
No bot configuration is required. The tracking should work as long as Telegram integration is enabled.
When setting up a Competitions or Rewards campaign, you have the option to set up a campaign-specific Telegram integration instead of using the site-wide integration.
This is helpful for larger campaigns where using one Telegram bot to verify entries across multiple campaigns might hit Telegram's API rate limit.
