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.

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: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/abc6def9/

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.
