How to Launch a Bot via a Link or QR code

You can create a link to start your chatbot flows. When a user follows your link, a messenger chat opens and your trigger flow will launch.

Any user who is not subscribed to the chatbot, but clicks your link, will see the “Get started” button. When the user clicks on the button, the triggered flow will launch, this flow will become the welcome flow.

If the user was already subscribed to your chatbot - the trigger flow that the link was created for will be launched immediately.

For Telegram users, the flow will launch after clicking on the "Start" button.

Creating a link

Choose your chatbot, navigate to the “Bot structure” tab, choose created trigger flow. Click on the drop-down menu and choose “Link to launch a flow”

The link will be copied to your clipboard.

You can share this link directly or add to your site as hypertext or a button.

Also, you can create a QR code for the link. When a user scans the code they will automatically follow the link.

Creating QR code

A QR code is a barcode that consists of black and white blocks and allows you to encode information, in this case, a link. Information stored in the code can be recognized using a smartphone or tablet - point the camera at the code and a window will appear asking you if you want to open the information in the application.

We used https://www.qrcode-monkey.com/ as an example for creating a QR code.

Paste the link to the “Your URL” field, then click the button “Create QR code.”

Your QR code will appear on the right side.

You can download the QR code picture, add it to your printed material, or add it to your site as a photo.
