How to capture a chart with your TradingView alerts
05 March 2019
When you get an alert from a trading signal, via TradingView, it is so useful to be able to glance at a relevant chart immediately. Alertatron can attach a snapshot of your charts to your alerts if you like.
Before your start
Flynn, our friendly alert bot can't log into your TradingView account, so before he can save snapshots of your charts there are a couple of things you need to do.
Firstly, make sure the chart you want to see is shared. Open up the chart menu (see screenshot below) and make sure Sharing on is enabled.
You also need to be aware that paid-for indicators will be disabled when viewing the public address of your chart so they will be missing from any snapshots.
Note: Charts can only be generated for the following intervals...
1, 3, 5, 15, 30, 45
1H, 2H, 3H, 4H
1D, 1W, 1M
Adding a chart to an individual message
Next, copy the address of the chart from your browsers address bar. They normally look a bit like the example below, but yours will have different letters and numbers at the end:
Finally, update your alert message to include chart: followed by the address of your chart, like in this example...
Any alert message you want, plus... chart:https://www.tradingview.com/chart/abc6def9/
Each time your alert is triggered, the chart will be automatically captured at the same time.
Adding a chart to all messages
When your alerts arrive in Alertatron, they are filtered into the groups you have created. All alerts appear in your Inbox, but the same alert can also appear in other groups if you've set them up. You can configure each group to add screenshots to all alerts that appear in it...
Go to the group you'd like to set up and edit its settings by clicking on the cog at the right-hand edge of the page. On the form, place your charts address into the Screenshot URL field and save your changes.

Did you know
You can also capture screenshots of almost any public website.
Just copy the address of the page from your browsers address bar and add it to your alert message or group settings as described above, and we'll do our best to capture an image of it when your alerts arrive.

We're all familiar with email. All your incoming emails arrive in your Inbox, but as we receive so many, most email services offers lots of ways to help you organise them into folders as they arrive. These are called all sorts of things, from folders and groups, to filters, labels, smart folders and many more.
TradingView has a feature that lets you view any of your shared charts using a different symbol or time interval to the one used on the saved chart. Alertatron offers a couple of ways you can use this to adjust your charts for each alert that arrives.
Telegram is our most popular integration, so it makes sense to include a step by step guide to help you get started.
