Once you have set up the bot, it is time to use the commands to perform various functions. There are various functions that the Group Butler bot can perform. Let us focus on a few functions to help you set them up.
- Your first step would be to enable the commands you want to use in the configuration menu that can be accessed by the command “/config” on your group. The group will send you a private inline keyboard to manipulate group settings.
- Now, you have a keyboard of commands the bot can perform on your group. For example, with the “antiflood” command – the bot can automatically ban/kick any member consecutively posting more than the allowed number of content on your group within 5 seconds.
- From the configuration keyboard sent to you by the bot, turn on or off the antiflood and what action you want the bot to take (kick or ban).
- Then, select how many messages users can send in 5 seconds to make the bot kick/ban them from the group upon violations of this assigned limit.
You can also select what message type or media the bot should consider implementing its punishment on or ignore (GIFs, forwards, Images, videos, texts, or stickers). Whatever media you restrict, the bot will punish the users for sharing more than the allowed limits of that media only.
All this will prevent any spamming activities as soon as any user posts more content than allowed, the bot will instantly take action against them. The bot will not penalize Administrators and moderators for posting more media than the allowed limits.
Similarly, to set a welcome message, first enable the welcome message command in the configuration menu. Next, go to the group chat and set the welcome message however you like: “/welcome Hello $name!“
It is imperative to note the bot will automatically replace the “$name” with the username of the joining member. Additionally, you can kick or ban a user by their username, ID, and even text mention. For example, “/ban @username.”
You can also add rules for joining members to follow along with the welcome message using the bot.
