I would like to import some filtered SMS from my Android phone to Google Sheets.

It could be done:

  • regularly (i.e. every 20 minutes),
  • event based, when an sms is arriving and matches one or more regexps)

Is there a way to do it?

  • There appears to be an applet on IFTTT (ifttt.com/applets/90144237d-add-sms-texts-to-spreadsheet, you must be logged in to see the applet) to send your SMS messages into Google Sheets. I don't know how much filtering is possible as I didn't have a way to test it. – jonsca Nov 30 '18 at 23:51
  • I know IFTTT applets, but it has very limited possibilities. I would like to select the source phone number and the target file, sheet, column where new sms text is added. – klor Dec 1 '18 at 7:10
  • Yeah. Unfortunately, that was the only thing that came to mind. You have to have some API bridge the gap, one way or the other. Good luck with it. – jonsca Dec 1 '18 at 7:23
