How do I import my list from Google Drive?

Contact Lists Integrations Updated on June 6, 2012

You can import contacts from your Google Drive by following these simple steps:

  1. Log in to your Benchmark account.
  2. Click on Contacts from the Dashboard menu.
  3. Select the Create New List button on the top-right of the page.
  4. Choose the Regular List option and click Next.
  5. Now, select the Import From A Service option then, click Next.
  6. Scroll down and click on the Google Drive integration icon
  7. Connect to Google Drive by clicking on the Google Drive icon.
  8. On the Google page, choose an account to continue.
  9. Now, select the Allow button.
  10. When prompted back to Benchmark, select a Google Drive Spreadsheet, Worksheet and a Benchmark Contact List or create a new list.
  11. Click Save & Next.
  12. Select and match the fields to be mapped, click Save & Next when done.

Important: Your Google Spreadsheet must contain the following supported headers. This is crucial for mapping while importing the details.

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email
  • Address
  • City
  • Country
  • Phone
  • Cell Phone

To consider:

  • You can only import files created on Google Drive.
  • If trying to import an external file to Google Drive, the data must be in the format XLS or XLSX.
  • If there are multiple sheets in the file, only the first sheet will be imported.
  • The final number of imported contacts may be less than the projected number due to the filtering of certain emails. Benchmark Email removes role-based emails, duplicates, unsubscribes and blocked domains. Click Here to learn more.

Note: Since this is a one-time import integration if you need to import more contacts at a later time, you will have to repeat the integration process. However, when you go to integrate again, you can choose the previous connection or create a new one.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact our Support team via email, LiveChat or by phone.
