I use WhatsApp to send out certificates to students. I generate the certificates using a Slides template and send the pdf download link. However, in WhatsApp, if you surround text with underscores, it automatically italicizes the text.
Ex: _testing_ > testing
If there happens to be underscores in the auto-generated Google Slides link (I’d say this happens ~30% of the time), a portion of the link is italicized, the underscores are removed, and the link is useless.
I tried using monospacing and it did not work to solve this.
SO - I want to create a Zap connected to an interface that generates the certificate (this interface already exists), but alerts me if the link successfully sent without italics.
If it didn’t, then I would know to go into my messaging platform and fix it manually - OR regenerate the certificate in the interface to try again.
Right now I’m going into every contact to check if it sent correctly. The interface I built isn’t actually saving me much time because of this.
Any thoughts on how I could condition this?
