Step 1: Go to the channels directory in your Dashboard

Go to 'Channels' in the sidebar of your MessageBird Dashboard. Then click on Add channel under Telegram.

Step 2: Give your channel a name

Name your channel, make sure it's easily recognizable for yourself and your team. Don't worry, this will only be used internally.

Step 3: Add your bot token

Add the token of the Telegram bot which you received during the bot creation process. We'll do the validation and, if your token is valid, your bot username will be filled automatically.
