See also the general info about Awakari.
To start using the Awakari Bot it's necessary to agree with Terms of Service and tap the "START" button.
Awakari Bot may be used to publish messages, manage subscriptions and usage limits. These actions are available from the reply keyboard in a private chat. Additional commands are available from the menu. A group chat with the bot may be used only to receive messages by a selected subscription.
In the private chat with the Awakari Bot, tap the "Subscriptions" button to display the subscriptions' usage.
First, it displays the usage statistics, allowed subscriptions count limit and limit expiration time.
Count represents the current user's subscription number.
Limit represents the subscriptions number limit. The bot doesn't allow a user to create more subscriptions than defined by the limit. The default limit is for free and offers up to 1 subscription per user.
Expires represents the subscription count limit expiration time. The current limit will be reset to the default limit after this.
Following the usage info, there's a user's subscriptions list. Every list item is a clickable button where the text is the corresponding subscription description.
A subscription may expire depending on its type. When subscription expires, Awakari system stops to deliver messages matching it. Note the special hints after a subscription description:
There are two ways to create a new subscription: Basic and Custom.
Basic allows to create a simple text matching subscription specifying a list of keywords to match.
Custom is for advanced subscription conditions like number conditions or conditions grouping.
Text conditions are limited to 256 keywords.
A group condition with "Or" logic is limited to 4 sub-conditions.
Tap the "+ Basic" reply keyboard button under "Subscriptions".
Reply with subscription name (actually a description without spaces) followed by space and space separated list of keywords.
After subscription is created, the bot offers to link it to a chat to receive the matching messages.
Tap the "+ Custom" reply keyboard button under "Subscriptions".
The form to define advanced matching conditions appears. Available condition types are "Group", "Text" and "Number". Once done, tap the "Submit" button below to create the subscription.
Create a new target group to link the subscription to it.
Invite the Awakari bot to the new group.
Give a name to the new group to find it later. Ideally, the group name should match the subscription description.
Once group is created and the bot is invited, it displays the list of available subscriptions. Select the subscription from the list.
After the subscription is linked to the chat, the bot starts to deliver the matching messages into the group.
The bot will remind when subscription expires sooner than in 1 week.
The bot will send a warning message if subscription is expired.
An incoming message in the group chat will look like this:
