I have Google Hangouts bot activated in Smartsheet and the two bots connected. Despite that, I can't manage to create an Automated Notification that sends to Google Hangouts. Anyone know how to do that? I would expect an option to appear here (see screenshot) like the Slack option does but I can't make it pop up. Help? 




Hi kristajoy,

Thank you for your inquiry. The Google Hangouts notifications are sent to users via a standard automated request, reminder or alert. There is no separate workflow for Hangouts. For other users to receive notifications from the Smartsheet bot, they will have to follow the same process of activating the bot via Google Hangouts Chat and have their email address included within the automated workflow.


I have set up an alert to notify me when any value changes in my Primary Column. Below is a screenshot of my workflow. As you can see, all that is included is my Smartsheet email. Once the rows are changed and the sheet is saved, I receive an alert via Google Hangout Chats informing me that an update has been made. 

Additional information regarding Hangouts Notifications can be found here:

If you wish to receive notifications from only hangout chats and not via Email as well, you can alter your notification settings by navigating to your Profile and Select Apps & Integrations. The above articles explain this in more detail.

Kind Regards
