There are time within a group, where you might have some information that you want your users to be able to refer to later. It might be a few links, or maybe a helpful image. It can be pretty much anything you want. Introducing notes! Rose’s notes feature allows you to save random bits of information for your users to retrieve later at their leisure.
There are two types of notes you can save: text-only notes, and attachment notes. We’ll go over the differences below:
Saving Text-Only Notes
When saving a new text-only note, there are 3 criteria required: the command, the word which you want to trigger retrieval of the note, and the note data itself. To do this, you would issue the below command:
/save <triggerword> <note>
So let’s say you wanted to have a note where the trigger word for the note was “gethelp”, and the note itself said “Go to our website to get help!”. You could accomplish this with the below command:
/save gethelp Go to our website to get help
Saving Attachment Notes
Rose also allows you to save an image, sticker, or any other attachment as a note. To do this, simply find the attachment you wish to save as a note, and reply to the attachment with the following command:
If you wanted to have a note that was a picture of a kitten, and you wanted the trigger word for the note to be “cuteness”, you would reply to the picture with the command like shown below:
Retrieving notes can be done by any user in your chat, as notes are accessible to everyone. There are two ways a user can retrieve notes.
The first method is to issue the below command:
Or, they can issue the command like a hashtag:
Using the examples from the Saving Notes section, let’s try to retrieve our notes.
If we wanted to retrieve the “gethelp” note, we could issue either of the below commands:
If we wanted to retrieve the “cuteness” note, we could issue either of these:
Viewing A Group’s Saved Notes
A user coming to your group may be curious about what notes you have available to them, or if you’re like me, you might use a note so rarely that you forget what the trigger word is. Thankfully, you and your users can quickly view a list of the notes available in your group by issueing either of the below commands:
If at any point you need to remove one of your group’s saved notes, you can simply issue the below command:
Let’s say we no longer wanted to keep our note with the cute kitten (you must be some kind of monster), then you would issue the command like shown below:
As a last note (pun intended), you may want to update a note, rather than deleting it and making a new one. To do this, you would simply issue the /save command again, just like you were making a new note.
Let’s say your group has a note with a trigger word of “contest”, and the note data was a phrase of “This week’s contest is awesome”. The contest is now over, and you want to change the note to advise your users that the contest is now over. You would simply issue the /save command like you were writing a new note, but you would use the same trigger word of “contest”, like below:
/save contest This week's contest is now over
Rose will then simply overwrite the “contest” note with what you typed for the new note.
