Telegram bot unable to send message to telegram channel. Error: Bad Request: not enough rights to send text messages to the chat.

 

I have added the bot as admin and given it all rights to the channel. Still unable to send the message. Please help

Hi there @Keith Leo and @engi. Welcome to the Community! 👋

I took a look on this end and couldn’t see any bug reports open for that specific error. Looking at that thread on Stack Overflow that @engi share it seems that the bug on Telegrams end was since resolved - https://bugs.telegram.org/c/33784.

Can you both confirm whether you’re still running into these “Bad Request: not enough rights to send text messages to the chat.” errors in your Zaps? 

Looking forward to hearing from you both on this!
