Send Mass Texts to Your Team Using DialMyCalls and Zapier

In this article, we’re going to show you how to combine and DialMyCalls using Zapier to send mass text reminders to your team. Zapier is a platform that makes automating different services super easy, saving you time and resources in the long run.

The example we’re going to use today involves automatically adding new team members to your DialMyCalls contacts. Not only does this make keeping up with your team’s contact information significantly easier, but it also allows you to send out automated messages to your team without having to dig up their phone number.

DialMyCalls is a free-to-start platform for automatically sending SMS (text) messages, either to individuals or groups. By combining it with Zapier, you can send mass text messages automatically, creating a useful and interactive notification system. Though we’re just going to be sending text messages to ourselves in this example, you can apply this service to your business in several ways.

What You’ll Need:

Step 1: Create Your Zap

We’re going to start by creating our Zap. To do this, log in to Zapier and head over to your Dashboard:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Connect “” with “DialMyCalls” on your Zapier dashboard.

As you can see in the above image, we’ve chosen “” for the Connect this app… field and “DialMyCalls” for the with this one! field. All you have to do to fill in each of these apps is type them into their corresponding fields and select them when they appear.

After that, in the When this happens… field, select New User:

DialMyCalls + Integration

In the next field, then do this!, select Add A Contact. Once you’ve done that, click the blue Use Zap button to finish creating your Zap:

Above Image: Set “Add A Contact” as your Zap Action.

Step 2: Connect Your Account

Once you’ve created your Zap, Zapier will bring you to the following screen:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Choose your account to connect to Zapier.

This is where you’re going to connect your account to Zapier. If you’ve already used the two services together, you’ll see your account listed as an option in the dropdown menu. Otherwise, you’ll need to follow these steps to connect the two services.

First, click the big blue button circled in red in the above screenshot. Clicking that will bring you to the this page in a new tab:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Allow Zapier to access your account.

As you can see, you’re going to need to paste an API Key in the empty field. An API Key is just a random string of letters and numbers used to link different services together. To find your API Key, log in to your account, click on your profile picture in the lower left corner of the screen, and select Admin:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Log into your account and click “Admin”.

From the Admin page, select API. That will bring you here:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Click on “API” and copy your API Token to your clipboard.

As pointed out by the two arrows, you should see two different API Tokens (or Keys) in your Admin settings. Using the Personal API Token will only give Zapier access to your personal boards, while the Company API Token will give Zapier access to all of the boards tied to your company’s account. Whichever one you pick is the one that will automatically add users to your DialMyCalls account, so Copy the one that’s right for you.

Once you’ve got it copied, head back over to Zapier and paste your API key:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Go back to Zapier and paste your API Key into the form field.

Next, just click Yes, Continue. Zapier will redirect you back to this page, where you can press Continue:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Click “Continue” to move on to the next step in the Zap process.

After that, Zapier is going to ask you if you want to test your Zap so far. All this will do is make sure that the two services are properly connected by pulling in information from your account. If you don’t want it to pull in information from just yet, just press SKIP TEST.

And that’s it! Time for Step 3.

Step 3: Create Your DialMyCalls Action

Now it’s time for the fun part, creating your DialMyCalls Action. Your Action is what this Zap is actually going to do each time it runs. In our case, that means creating a new DialMyCalls contact for every new user we get on If your screen matches the following, go ahead and select Continue:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Set “DialMyCalls” as the App and “Add A Contact” as the Action Event.

Next, Zapier is going to ask you to connect your DialMyCalls account:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Select the DialMyCalls account that you want to connect to Zapier.

Like, you should see your DialMyCalls listed as an option in the dropdown menu if you’ve already used DialMyCalls with Zapier before. Otherwise, you’ll need to connect it to Zapier like we did in Step 2. You’ll need an API Key for DialMyCalls as well. Once you have the two services connected, select Continue.

After that, you should be be brought to this screen:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: It’s now time to set up your Action template.

This is your Action template. It’s where we’re going to fill in the information that Zapier is pulling from to create your new DialMyCalls contacts. To start, let’s fill in the First name field. To fill in this field, open the dropdown menu and choose Name:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Choose “Name” from the “First Name” dropdown menu.

Unfortunately, doesn’t separate first and last names, so we’re just going to put both in the First name field. After that, we’re going to fill in the Phone number field. Like before, open the dropdown menu and select Phone:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Choose “Phone” from the “Phone number” dropdown menu.

And finally, do the same for the Email address field:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: Choose “Email” from the “Email address” dropdown menu.

Those are the only fields you really need to fill in for this Zap to work, though you can fill in as many as you like. The Group field is particularly helpful for keeping your contacts separate from the rest of your DialMyCalls contacts.

Once you’re happy with your Action template, select Continue.

Step 4: Turn Your Zap On

All that’s left to do is turn your Zap on. After you press Continue on the Action template screen, Zapier will bring you here:

DialMyCalls + Integration
Above Image: You can now test out your DialMyCalls + Zap.

This gives you one more chance to make sure that everything looks the way it should. You can now test the Zap again to check that everything is working correctly. If it is, Zapier will add the contact that you see on this screen to your DialMyCalls contacts. If you don’t want to test it right now (or don’t want to add this contact to your DialMyCalls contacts) go ahead and choose SKIP TEST.

On the next screen, just press the switch to turn on your Zap and you’re done!

DialMyCalls + Integration Conclusion

Here’s a quick recap of everything we did:

  • Created a new Zap
  • Chose as our Trigger app and DialMyCalls as our Action app
  • Connected our account to Zapier
  • Completed our DialMyCalls Action template
  • Tested our Zap and turned it on

Now that you’ve turned on your DialMyCalls + Zap, any new users are going to be added to DialMyCalls as contacts. This will make it much easier to keep up with everyone’s contact info and allow you to send out mass texts to your team later on. Just keep in mind that this doesn’t add your existing users as contacts.

You can create other Zaps using and DialMyCalls to send text notifications to your team or to notify yourself of changes to your boards. Don’t hesitate to create more Zapier automations so that you get the most out of all three services!
