A column with Customer Name values, B column with Mobile values, C column with Custom1 values, D column with Custom2 values, E column with Custom3 values, F column with Custom4 values. You can personalise using A, C to F columns. Personalisation/customization is optional, you can just send SMS without any customization too. Ensure phone/mobile columns in B column and clean up your mobile phone numbers.
Once you are done with customer data in sheets, now head on to add our ready scripts. You can get our complete downloadable code once you are recharged with your account from our team.
Go to Toolbar, Click on Extensions, then Apps Script.
A new Apps Script tab will open. Rename Untitled project to Send SMS code. By default, code.js editor will be shown.
Remove all codes from the edit window. Copy and paste the given code from our team on this window and edit the following constants. Update sgc_username, sgc_password, sgc_sendername values. Once editing is done, click on save button. Then go back to your sheet.
Refresh the sheet page. Wait for 5 to 10 seconds. New Menu will be added as SMSGatewayCenter. Click on SMSGatewayCenter, new sub-menu will open as Send SMS, then click on Send SMS.
Google requires permission, so it pops up a confirm window to authorize your account with the added script. Click on Continue.
By continuing, it will take you to select your Google account, select the account which you have used for your sheet.

In the next window, it will show the list of permission which your script requires, scroll down below and click on Allow. Do not worry, you are giving permission to your own account and no one else can access your app code or sheet data.
A new sidebar will open. Default Sender name is already added in the script and will be fetched in the sidebar window too. You can change it as you want, if you have multiple sender names approved from us. Enter your message. We have kept customization simple to change actual values from columns.
If you want to address name, then you can use variable as <A> to replace value from column. It is applied for other columns too, such as <C>, <D>, <E>, <F>. We have added a sample message to make you understand in this tutorial.
