Telegram's BotFather

experiment

New Boteqa-powered bots are by-invitation-only, so nobody else but you - the owner - will be able to use it. In this way, you can explore Boteqa's features and settings without making your bot public.

manage access

Once you are ready, you can:

  • Create single-use invitation codes by issuing the command /roletoken user. Your customers can then issue the command /role <token> to access the bot

  • Make the bot available to everybody by issuing the command /cmd --no-access-control
