How to Use our Template to Add Product Options to Google Sheets
If you want to add product options to Google Sheets, you can easily do so using our template. In this guide, we will walk you through the process step by step.
Our template allows you to connect your Google Sheets with our workflow builder, enabling you to add product options to your spreadsheets automatically. This can be useful for managing and analyzing product data efficiently.
2. Accessing the Builder
To begin, you need to open the workflow builder where you can access the template. Once you have the template installed, locate it in the builder and open it.
3. Filtering for Infinite Options Orders
In this step, you have the option to filter for specific selections of infinite options orders. However, if you want to return orders with any option selections, you can leave this field blank. Click "Done" to proceed.
4. Gathering Information for Each Product
The next step involves creating a loop action to gather information for each individual product in the order. This loop allows you to collect data for each line item or product, ensuring you have all the necessary details.
5. Creating a Google Sheets Row for Each Product
In the third step, you will find the Google Sheets create row action. This action creates a row in your Google Sheets for each product in the order. However, before you proceed, there are a few steps you need to complete.
6. Authenticating with Google
To connect your Google account with Mesa, you need to authenticate with Google. Click the "Authenticate with Google" button in the account credentials menu and follow the prompts to approve the permissions. Rest assured that your data is secure and will not be shared.
7. Creating a New Spreadsheet or Using an Existing One
In the step configuration section, you have the flexibility to choose whether to create a new spreadsheet or use an existing one. For the purpose of this guide, we will assume you want to create a new spreadsheet. Enter a name for your spreadsheet in the "New Spreadsheet Name" field and click "Create Spreadsheet."
8. Updating Column Headers in the Spreadsheet
After creating the spreadsheet, you will see default column headers in the Google Sheets create row step. These headers represent order information you want to collect. You can add or delete column headers based on your requirements.
9. Using Variables to Fill in Empty Fields
When adding new columns for your option selections, you need to use the variable selector to fill in the empty fields. Variables represent specific data from a previous step in the workflow, allowing you to specify what data to send to each column in the spreadsheet.
10. Testing the Workflow
To ensure your workflow works correctly, you can use the test button. Select a previously created order or create a test order with infinite option selections. Once you start the test, check the spreadsheet to verify that it updates as desired.
Congratulations! You have successfully set up our template to add product options to Google Sheets. From now on, all infinite option orders will be sent to your newly created spreadsheet, allowing you to collect and analyze the data you need.
