Common questions for Google Sheets

How does LeadsBridge recognize emails on a sheet?

LeadsBridge automatically finds the email column that is used to check for duplicates or to retrieve emails that can be used as the source in the Custom Audience feature.

Why do I see "#ERROR" under the phone number column inside my sheet?

You are seeing this error on your Google Sheet because the phone number is passed with a "+" before the value and Google recognize it as the SUM operation. Typically this "+" character is used to identify the international format prefix and is automatically added by your lead generation tool to any phone number.

You may fix it very quickly by editing the phone column on your sheet, please follow these steps:
  • Head to your Google Sheet
  • Select the whole column (1-click on the column letter)
  • Click on "Format" » "Number" on the top menu
  • Select "Text" instead of "Number"

What is the "Allow Duplicates?" toogle?

With this toggle you may choose if you want to allow duplicates or not inside your sheet.
When "No" is checked, LeadsBridge will search if the email address already exists in one of your rows and then will try to update it. If no row is found, a new one will be created.
If "Yes" is checked, the lead will be added each time as a different row, without checking if the email already exists on the spreadsheet.

Google Sheet Tips

Do not change the order of the columns in your spreadsheet, especially when the bridge has already recognized the fields. This can cause errors with how you'll receive the leads' information on your Google Spreadsheet.

When should I use the Sheet Id field?

Currently, Google Sheets Integration expects to collect a maximum of 500 spreadsheets per Google account, so if your account contains more than 500 spreadsheets it’s possible that your spreadsheet is not displayed in the selection list from the Bridge configuration.
If this is your case, thanks to the Sheet Id field, you will be able to indicate the exact ID of the spreadsheet you want to use.
