Forward SMS to Email via Zapier

Zapier is a very powerful tool that compliments well with engageSPARK’s platform. We’ve been using it to a lot of third party software integrations including sms to email forwarding. In this article, we’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how to integrate your email account to receive SMS with the help of Zapier.

We only need to set-up 3 things: An SMS blast, SMS webhook, and a Zap (Zapier). In creating SMS Blast and Webhook, please click here and refer to “Creating SMS Blast – engageSPARK” and “Creating SMS Webhook – engageSPARK” sections of the article. Make sure to launch your SMS webhook and SMS blast first. Then, reply to that SMS when received before completing step 1 of the guide.

 

Create a Zap – Step 1

  1. Choose webhook as trigger app.
  2. Select catch hook and hit Continue.
  3. Hit continue on the next page.
  4. Get the URL by clicking the copy to clipboard button
  5. Paste the URL to Step 1 of your SMS webhook on your engageSPARK account.
  6. If all works well and everything was setup correctly, you should get a success message.

    In any case that you get an error message here, make sure that you have already launched your SMS webhook and SMS blast. Then, reply to that SMS when received.

 

Create a Zap – Step 2

  1. Search for Email in Zapier’s built-in app and set it as your action app.
  2. Select “Send Outbound Email” and hit continue.
  3. Fill out the template as necessary and make sure to set the email address where all SMS received is to be directed. Also, set what you want the subject to be.
  4. On the next page, once you are satisfied with the preview of what the email will be, you can hit Create and Continue.
  5. If all details provided on the template are correct, you should see a success message.
  6. Lastly, turn on your Zap.

    At this point you should be able to see an email on your email inbox
