[APP][Pro] Telegram Notifications

The live version updated to 1.0.5 this morning, but now I can not see any users anymore. Eventhough the bot tells me I’m already in the user list.

I have tried to:
Clear users (user id was visible but no names (if I remember correctly they showed as undefined))
Restart app
De + Re install app
Configure app with correct token
Restart app

Still the user list is empty

So I deleted the bot from Telegram, Created a new one.
Registered my user, now it works again.
But the naming convention is shown differently

That’s my bad! I didn’t though of that. I changed the internal saving, since 1.0.5 support group chats and superchats now (Group chats with permissions). It should have been enough to clear the users and do /start again on the Telegram chat.
Thank you for letting me know!

Yes I changed the naming from the Telegram username to the first name and as backup the username.

Would I be able to help you create a Dutch translation?

I send you a PM :slight_smile:


If I understand the mechanism correctly, it would be possible for any Telegram user to add my bot, if he can guess the correct name. And thereby I would not be notified.

If this assumption is correct, would it be possible to let Telegram Notification have a ‘When’ card ‘A new user has been discovered’?

best regards,

Yes, that’s true.
I was thinking about to add a “password” to the /start command, but at the end I was against it. Since you have to choose a user at the flow.

I can add that :slight_smile:

Check out the test version :slight_smile:


  • Added ‘A new user/chat has been discovered’ flow card
  • Added support for a password for the /start command

Hi, even Telegram Bot works for me, the reason it hasn’t been updated for such a long time and as it reports me some error about ‘reading slice’, I decided to try out Telegram Notifications but now I see it can’t send picture - do you plan to implement it please ?

I’ll take a look at it. Should be possible, but not sure how long it will take :slight_smile:

Hello @Sharkys

I just pushed a test version with support to send images.
You just have to enter the URL of the image to the flow card and the rest will do the app.
The Images wont get saved to the Homey.

If you found something missing or not working, don’t be afraid to tell me! :slight_smile:

Best regards.

Hi @spkesDE , thank you, can be also Image Tags used? Eg. image from camera without pointing to URL actually…

Hey @Sharkys.
I just updated the test version. Should be possible now!
Feel free to give feedback, since I don’t have a way to test it :slight_smile:

Best regards
