Click here to Authenticate. Alternatively, you can start the bot sending /start to @CallMeBot_txtbot.
How to Create the Automation (Gmail -> Telegram)
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 into 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 own emails in Gmail. You will have a copy of the script and you will own it (you are the developer)
Step by Step Instructions:
1) Open this Google Sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_jZo7rqosJBpLxbzQxBl7OMtS0rbSYc5m_tFX-4ev1M/edit?usp=sharing
3) Name the new Google Sheet as you wish. For example: Copy of Email to Telegram
5) Comple the email Search Criteria, WhatsApp Phone number and APIKey in the sheet
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 notification about those urgent emails that you would like to receive a call or text message in Telegram. 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.
9) You created a copy of the script and now the Google Sheet and Script belongs to you. You are the developer of the script now. And you are the executor. So you are giving your Google account access to your Gmail. Click "Advanced" to contiue.
12) That's all. The script is ready to be started in your Google Cloud. Start the script again doing click in "Emal to Telegram" -> "Start email monitoring"
How to test and troubleshoot in case of problems
Tip1: The Script will mark the emails processed with a "Telegram" 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 "Telegram" flag from it.
Tip2: You can test the Telegram functionality to confirm that the Telegram Text/Call is worning fine. Just click on the menu: "Email to Telegram" -> "Test Telegram Message". You should receive a test message/call in Telegram App after a few seconds.
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.
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
- WhatsApp Text Messages using Web Browser: here
You might get some errors on the screen that will help you to identify the problem. (Ex: Calls disabled in the Telegram Security Settings, WhatsApp not activated, etc.)
