Making use of groups

27 April 2019

Groups provide a powerful way to filter your alerts into different categories. Each group can have its own set of integrations linked to it so each group can forward alerts to different places.

For example, you may have some alerts that need to be sent to you in Telegram, other signals you want to share with a group of people in Discord and others that you'd like to be sent to a trading bot for automated execution of trades.

When you first sign up you'll have a single group - the inbox. This group has no filter on it and every incoming alert will appear in it.

You can create additional groups to help you organise your incoming alerts from the 'Alerts' menu at the top of the page...

When you create a new group, provide the text to filter your alerts with. Incoming alerts must contain the exact text you provide here to appear in the group.

We generally recommend using something simple to filter your incoming alert with, like hashtags. For example, if you're creating a group to handle all the alerts you'd like to send to a trading bot, make the groups filter #bot and add the text #bot to all the alerts you like to send to your bot. For example:-

BTCUSD 1D Buy : Trend Reversal 
#bitcoin #bot #signal

This alert might appear in your inbox, in your bot group, and in your public signal group. The alert will be sent to all the integrations in all these groups (such as Telegram, Discord, Webhooks, etc).

There are three options to help you filter alerts into different groups. As well as the filter text to look for in alerts, you can choose one of three ways to control how the filter is applied...

  • Exact Match requires the exact text you entered must be present in the alert message for the alert to be added to the group.
  • All Words will include the alert in the group if all the words in your filter text appear in the alert message. They can appear anywhere in the message, in any order, but they must be all present.
  • Any Words will include the alert in the group if at least one of the words in your filter text appear in the message. The do not all have to be present.
