Telegram Reply Bot
Telegram Reply Bot from AppFollow helps you reply to user reviews right from your Telegram app or a group chat. You can get all app reviews and manage them not leaving your Telegram chat.
How to set up
1. Add @appfollow_reply_bot to be able to reply to app reviews:
2. Click "Start" (or type /start), and you will see the Chat id you need to switch on the bot
3. Copy the digits and go to https://watch.appfollow.io > Integrations. Choose the app you need and Telegram integration
4. Paste the Chat id into the "Webhook URL" field

6. Click "Add integration"
Now you can check that the integration works correctly. To do so go to your AppFollow Integrations page, find the Telegram integration you've just added, and click "Actions" - the three dots near the integration. Click "Send Test Notification".
