I wish if the video was in English.

Can anyone provide a step by step video explaining how to set up the wialon to send notification via telegram app. or simplified written instructions.

Re: WhatsApp as an alert channel

channal id is when the link of your public channel and with @ before it

for example this channal has the link (https://t.me/Aljazirad)

i should write @Aljazirad in the channal id.
the channal should be a public channal and the bot has to be added to the channal as an admin too.

if you want to send notification to an indivisual person you should add the id of the user.
how you can get the id of a user

just send a message to @userinfobot
and it will reply by sending the id of the user.
