How to Create the Automation (Gmail -> WhatsApp)

Note about Google Script Permissions: This solution is based on a Google Script program that will run on your own Google Cloud. That means that the script is running in your own account so CallMeBot has no access to your Gmail or other Google services. All the permissions that Google Script will ask you are for yourself and based on your own account. Example: You will give permission to your google account to check your emails in Gmail. You will have a copy of the script and you will own it (you are the developer)

The email Search Criteria is by default all the “unread” emails that are sent to you. You can customize the email search in order to receive notifications about those urgent emails that you would like to receive in your WhatsApp Account. Use your Gmail Search to find and test the right Email Search Criteria. You can use the advance search form to get the right filter.

6) Click “WhatsApp to Email” -> “Start email monitoring”
This will start running the email monitoring script in the Google Cloud (after you grant the permissions). The script will check for new emails every 15minutes and send you a Whatsapp when new emails are received in your Gmail account.

How to test and troubleshoot in case of problems

Tip1: The Script will mark the emails processed with a “WhatsApp” Label. This Label will be created in your Gmail. If you want to make a test with an email that has been already processed by the script, just remove the “WhatsApp” Label from it.

Tip2: You can test the WhatsApp functionality to confirm that the WhatsApp messaging is working fine. Just click on the menu: “Email to WhatsApp” -> “Test WhatsApp Message”. You should receive a text message in WhatsApp after a minute.

Tip3: You can manually trigger the email check function without waiting 15min. Just click on the menu: “Email to WhatsApp” -> “Check emails now”. It will manually start the function that checks for new emails.

Tip4: Check the “Script Logs (for troubleshooting)” section for more details about the callmebot APIKey.

Problems?

If you have problems, like not receiving the Call on Telegram, or not receiving the WhatsApp messages,  try to test the CallMeBot API using your Web Browser:

  • Telegram Phone Calls using Web Browser: here
  • Telegram Text Messages using Web Browsers: here
