Telegram Integration

Telegram Integration

Due to Telegrams’ API limitations, it is impossible to gather historical data except for members. The actual number of new members will appear in the New Member - By integration chart as joined on the day of integration connection. The Telegram integration works only for groups, not for specific channels due to limitations in their API The maximum limit of members through Telegram API is 10.000. Every member count that goes beyond that number will be impossible to trace in Ahoy due to Telegram API limitations.

Go to the integrations Tab and select Telegram

Follow the procedure as mentioned in the next step.

In case you’re hiding members inside your TG group, please make sure to add the Ahoybot as an admin. You can untoggle all of the permissions as adding us as an admin, gives us all the rights we need at this stage.

💡 Make sure you choose the AhoyConnect bot (1)

⚡️The second one is a scam⚡️


Especially if you’re doing the process on the phone, both look exactly identical, so you need to write the entire handle as shown in the pic below.


Data mapping

The only mappable field in Telegram is Username.

Scoring System

Events: Add events you want to track and assign them importance from 1 to 10 points for each time the user will perform the action

Activity Stages: Define activity stages by creating your own badges for each stage with its own range of points users need to hit to earn the badge in the last 30 days.

  • Be as specific as you can with the events scoring.
  • If you value thread replies in your support channel, give it additional points. That way, you will be able to identify the real heroes in your community.

You can find more information about the scoring system in our dedicated article here.
