Launch of E-data Platform Chatbot in Telegram

For already half a year, the chatbot of the E-data platform has been operating in test mode on Telegram (@edata_platform_bot). We haven't created voice announcements or launch presentations; we added a link to download the chatbot on the E-data page (https://edata.gov.ua). And now, after testing and refinement, we want to present this product to the public!

The chatbot was created in compliance with the order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated February 11, 2016, No. 92-r. https://zakon.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/92-2016-р#Text

The purpose of the bot is to notify users about updates on the E-data portals. By default, the bot sends notifications about:

  • Events according to the budget calendar;
  • Updates of budget execution indicators;
  • Updates of the STSU transaction registry;
  • Updates of the international financial projects registry;
  • Specific statistical indicators.

We are providing a user manual for working with the chatbot and a description of the functionality available today:
