  • Country
  • Phone
  • Cell Phone


  • You can only import sheets created on Google Sheets.
  • If trying to import an external file to Google Sheets, 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.
  • The list you connect to Google Sheets can not be used with another app/integration.
  •  Allow a few minutes for the list sync to complete. Wait time varies depending on the total of contacts you are syncing.
