Want to keep track of all important events on your portal (birthdays, new blog posts, shared documents, etc.)? Stay tuned with Telegram notifications available in ONLYOFFICE Groups starting from version 11.0. Read on to learn the details.
In the previous versions, notifications were able via Talk and email only. Now you can literally hold them in your pocket – the popular messenger Telegram lets you know what happened on your portal. The new feature is available in the cloud and self-hosted solutions.

Telegram stands out with an unlimited storage for your messages and media files, groups with up to 5000 members, channels and AI-based bots.
Telegram pays really much attention to users’ data security – for example, it provides the top level of protection with end-to-end encrypted secret chats.
