In the SaaS world, approvals, authorizations, and installations are something we deal with every day. At times, it can turn out to be a time-consuming and cumbersome process. Our priority is not just to build software that works but to make it easy for our users to enjoy our product and reduce (or, ideally, eliminate) the time it takes for them to get the value they are looking for. Today, installing WhatsApp in your Rocket.Chat workspace involves a few prerequisites. So, the WhatsApp Sandbox app is our way of telling you we have taken care of these beforehand to simplify the process of installing WhatsApp in your workspace. Therefore, WhatsApp Sandbox app is a mimic of the WhatsApp production app minus the prerequisites involved.
Here’s what you can expect from the app:
You can now get started with the integration without having to furnish your WhatsApp Business Account details. You can use the Test API-KEY to send text messages and text templates to your phone number. The number can be a landline, as long as it can use WhatsApp. Your phone number acts as a user and can send and receive messages. An unlimited amount of messages can be sent with the sandbox.
You are notified about all the permissions the app would access. Click Install again.
For more information on installing and configuring the WhatsApp Sandbox app, please refer to our technical documentation.
