WhatsApp and Zapier automation #2: Send a WhatsApp message when new Deal stage is changed in Pipedrive

Maximize your sales potential with WhatsApp and Pipedrive integration. Discover the seamless connection and unlock new opportunities for efficient communication and streamlined workflows.

WhatsApp & Zapier Automation overview

If you want to notify your contact about a new deal on Pipedrive, then use this step-by-step guide. This Zapier template will send an automatic WhatsApp message to your contact when a new Deal is created in Pipedrive.

– This automation is available as Zapier & WhatsApp template for quick setup with TimelinesAI.
– Native Zapier integration is available on all TimelinesAI plans.
– You can try it on a free trial right now! No credit card or additional setup is required, works with all WhatsApp numbers.

Step 1: Create a new Zap

For illustration purposes, we’ll be creating a Zap where automated messages are sent on WhatsApp after a new Deal is created on Pipedrive. However, you may change the triggers and actions, available within their respective drop-down menus on Zapier, depending on your needs.

Log into Zapier and then, create a Zap by adding the information required in the respective fields, like this:

Once you are done, you may click on “Try it”. This will take you to a section where you’ll be able to select the Pipedrive account that you’ll use. Zapier will ask your permission to access information from Pipedrive. Once you approve it, Zapier will proceed and gather data from your Pipedrive account.

Step 2: Connecting TimelinesAI account

After step 1 is done, Zapier will ask you for your TimelinesAI account. This will require you to go to TimelinesAI and then, click on “Integrations“; click on “Zapier Integration“, where you’ll need to click on “Generate new token“:

You’ll then go back to Zapier and continue the process by pasting that token into this text box:

Step 3: customize your WhatsApp message

Zapier will ask you for information about the message. The information that you’ll enter here are variables that will be preloaded from your Pipedrive account, as you can see here:

WhatsApp and Zapier automation 2 4When you click on the “Phone number” field, Zapier will provide you with variables, which will have an example beside them. Since this field requires a “Phone Number” variable, then you’ll want to select its corresponding variable, like “Person Id Phone“.

The “Message text” is where you’ll write the message that you want to send to people. As you can see, we added a variable; “Person Name“, to call out the name of the contact in our automated message (you may add more variables, depending on your intended message). Once you are done with the fields above, you may proceed by clicking on “Next”.

Step 4: Testing your WhatsApp & Zapier Automation

WhatsApp and Zapier automation 2 5Once you click on “Send test”, Zapier will send an automated message that will be visible on TimelinesAI:

And that’s how you create a Zap to send automated messages to your contacts after a New Deal (or any other event) is created on Pipedrive. You’ll be able to review this on Zapier by clicking on “Zaps“:
