SMS Integrations

SMS Integration Details

Launched on Zapier October 22, 2011

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Subscriber") and Actions (like "Send SMS") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following SMS Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

Send SMS

Send an SMS to a number. Notice that a successful action means that the SMS has been queued, not delivered.

  • Get an SMS Whenever Your Typeform Form is Filled Out

    Your forms are important, and you always want to know when they've been filled out. And now you can. With this integration, you can automatically get an SMS message on your phone whenever your Typeform form is filled out.

    How it Works

    Zapier will watch your Typeform form, and whenever it's filled out, it'll copy the relevent data that you selected and send it to you in an SMS message.

    What You Need

    1. A Typeform account with an active form
    2. A US or UK cell phone number

    Got that? Then let's get started.

  • Get SMS alerts for approaching Google Calendar events

    Never forget your upcoming events! With this Zap, you'll receive an SMS before an event in your Google Calendar is about to start.

    How it Works

    1. Zapier watches your Google Calendar for events that are about to start.
    2. You get an SMS a chosen amount of time before each event starts

    What You Need

    • A Google Calendar account
    • A mobile phone number that can receive SMS messages
  • Get SMS notifications for new email matching Gmail search query (such as, from:boss@work.com)

    Whether you're looking for a way to get an SMS alert for only the most important emails, such as from your boss, or you want to get a text message when the latest issue of your favorite newsletter hits your inbox, rely on this Gmail SMS integration. To set it up, you'll just need to write the search string, which we provide instructions for.

    Note: This Zapier integration only triggers for Gmail emails received within the last 48 hours. SMS support is limited to US and UK.

    How It Works

    1. A new email meets your Gmail search criteria
    2. Zapier sends you a text message containing the email subject, sender, and body (or whatever you choose to include)

    What You Need

    • Gmail account
    • Phone number
  • Get SMS notifications for new leads from Facebook Lead Ads

    Catching new customers when they're most engaged increases your chances of conversion. With this automation on your side, Zapier will let you know whenever someone expresses interest: It will trigger with every new lead captured by your Facebook ads and send you an SMS with their details in response, ensuring you can act on them right away.

    How this Facebook Lead Ads integration works

    1. A new lead is captured by your Facebook Lead Ad
    2. Zapier sends you an SMS with their info

    Apps involved

    • Facebook Lead Ads
  • Get daily reminders by SMS

    There are tasks we need to complete every day, but sometimes we just need a reminder of those tasks. How can we set that up? With a little help from Zapier that scheduled task can get sent to you by text message at the same time every day.

    How It Works

    1. Zapier schedule is set to daily and at a specific time
    2. A message is then sent to you by SMS

    What You Need

    • Cell phone with SMS
  • Get today's weather forecast via SMS

    Each morning, Zapier checks your local forecast—it respects your Zapier account timezone settings—and sends you the details you've selected via SMS. You can include the temperature, chance of rain, summary and more in the message.

    How It Works

    1. At 7 a.m. local time, Zapier checks the local forecast
