Sending message to WhatsApp group

Hi.
I have a small use case in which I need help.
Sending a message to the WhatsApp group.

  • I have an excel where I have 3 columns.
    Name | Mobile | WhatsAppGroup
  • the WhatsAppGroup is the same for all the records.
  • the message sending to the group is also always the same.
    example

Hello “Name”, how are you?
(“Name” will be replaced by the name from excel).

P.S - I am using WhatApp API "https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone="+Mobile+"" now to send messages to every contact in the excel over web.whatsapp.com but trying to send message to a group but no breakthrough yet.

looking for suggestions

Hi @indrajit.shah,

I have not tested this yet. Just curious, are you using the HTTP request activity and send to Facebook WhatsApp Business API or using web browser web.whatsapp.com ?

@GreenTea no I am not using Business API or HTTP request.

you can simply log in to web.whatsapp.com then scan the QR code with your WhatsApp and then when you hit the
URL https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone="WhatsAppNoWithCountryCode"
then you can able to create a new message instance for exchanging messages, even if the no. is not in your contact list.

Hi @indrajit.shah,

Unfortunately, WhatsApp API is closed. Not much documentation on it.

ya, i think so but still this api is working.

Hi…
@indrajit.shah Please go through this video…this is based on web.whatsapp.com
not through API request …https://youtu.be/QeeCMDbwDvY

This is for contact numbers, I am looking for GROUP

In contact place u can mention group name…it was based on names…there we can mentioned contact name or group name

For future reference - Then how it will handle the contacts that’s not in the contact list?

U need to create a workflow if the contact is not found then u need to create a contact or manually u have to declare contact is not found in the excel file in status column…
