How to create your first bot

Let's create our first bot for Telegram.

1. Add a bot on the Main page by clicking on the "Create a new bot" button.

2. Choose an empty template.

3. You will see the Bot Editor, which is the work area of the Bot Editor. The start screen is automatically added when you create a new bot. It is the main one and is executed first by default when launching the bot.

Drag the Message component from the Components tab to the Start screen. You can also select the screen and double-click the required component from the Components tab — it will be automatically added to the selected screen. Write some text, for example "Hello, world!". Click the Save button.

After saving the bot, it will be possible to connect it to the platform through the quick connect window.

Select the platform you want to connect from the drop-down list. In our case, this is Telegram.

To continue, click Connect Platform.

At the next stage, you need to add a bot token. To do this, go to Telegram.

1. Open the @BotFather bot in Telegram and send it the command /newbot.

2. Submit a name for your new bot. The name will be displayed in contacts and chats.

3. Create a username for the bot and submit it. The bot can be found in Telegram by username.

4. Then @BotFather will send you a bot token. Copy it.

Go back to the builder, insert the received token and click Next.

Done. Now you can open the bot in Telegram for testing or continue editing in the builder.

You can also insert the received token on the Settings page. To do this, turn on the platform, click the Edit button next to the token input field, insert the token and click Save.

The active checkbox "Protect the content in the whole bot" will not allow you to forward or save content from all of the following components at once: Video, Message, Image, Gallery, Dynamic Buttons, Document, Audio, Buttons. For individual components, protection can be removed in the component settings using the " Protect content" checkbox.

Find your bot and write the command /start to it. It should send you a message from the Start screen. It's done!
