Hey folks. I created a ZAP that is triggered based on a Google Calendar event 1hr prior to the event occuring and uses an API from Simple Texting service to send out an SMS message. The ZAP allows me to put in my phone number however I am wndring if I can use multiple phone numbers? Or better yet use the Simple Texting subscriber contact list?

Hi @Netguy 

Those capabilities should be listed under the specific fields in the Zap step if available.

 

Based on the Simple Texting API documentation (https://simpletexting.com/api/docs/#operation/sendMmsPost), which is what their Zap app integration is built on, it doesn’t look like sending to multiple phone numbers or sending to a list is available functionality.

 

 

Thank you. It looks like I need to find another solution then. I really need the ability to Send multiple TEXT messages to approximately 125 users based on Google Calendar events. 

Thanks again!

Hi @Netguy 

Check out the Looping by Zapier app that was recently released which allows you to loop/iterate thru a list and perform the same action: https://zapier.com/apps/looping/help

 

Other solutions to check out are TextMagic and ClickSend, both of which have Zapier integrations and offer Lists.

ClickSend: https://zapier.com/apps/clicksend/integrations#triggers-and-actions

Troy, Thanks again for this information.

After reviewing Looping by Zapier I wish that it was possible to loop through a Google Spreadsheet of phone numbers. DO you happen to know if that can be done.
