Message Finder System

Compatibility: Message Listener Command

Telegram Explorer allows to specify many message finders. Usually, the finder engine looks at messages, but, they also can look at downloaded text files (plain, csv, xml, json, etc.).

It's through the Finder engine that you are able to send notifications or export the chat contents (Check the Notification System and Message Export System for more information).
