Telegram Node - Force Reply + Reply Keyboard

Describe the issue/error/question

WHen using the Telegram NOde to send messages to a user - its possible to automatically enter the user into a reply dialogue and also present custom buttons using the Reply Markup options. What I don’t seem to be able to do is both at the same time - which must be a very common use case.

Is this a limitation of the Node or (my) user error? If a limitation of the Node - is it possible to do this another way? I read that I could use HTTP request to build a custom node though I’m not sure how to do this.

Thank you!

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share the workflow

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version:
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite):
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm,, desktop app]:

I don’t have an answer but am interested in this.

did you manage to solve this in the end?

I did not. I think it may be possible a custom API call, but it does not appear to be using the Telegram node.
