It is easy for the Facilities Manager to connect FacilityBot to Telegram. Once connected, the Facilities Manager will need to inform building users (“Requestors”) how to find the correct Telegram channel for his building.
There are 2 primary ways that Requestors can find the correct channel in Telegram (A) searching for the name of the Telegram channel and (B) scanning the QR code in the poster.
- Finding the correct channel by searching for the channel name
Step 1: Open the Telegram App
Step 2: Navigate to the search bar
Step 3: Type the name of the bot provided by the Facilities Manager
Step 4: Click “Start’
A welcome message will be sent to help the Requestor with the next steps.
- Finding the correct channel by Scanning the QR code in the poster
Once FacilityBot has been connected to a Telegram channel, the Facilities Manager can print a helpful poster with a QR code to guide Requestors to find the correct Telegram channel.
