Add to Sheets

Save Content to Multiple Spreadsheets at Once

Add to Sheets is a Chrome extension that lets you add content from anywhere on the web to a Google Sheets spreadsheet.

Using the Groups feature of the extension, you can quickly add content to multiple Sheets Drive files with a single click.

Instead of having 3 menu options, it’s possible to have a single menu option that saves content to multiple Sheets files at the same time.

Once you have a few columns set up, you can create a group to save content to multiple Sheets at the same time.

👋 Hi there! Groups is a feature available to Add to Sheets Pro users. To upgrade, click the Upgrade to Pro option in the extension profile dropdown.

Creating Groups

For this example, we’ll assume that we have 3 configurations set up in the extension already. Each of these configurations saves content to a different Google Sheets file:

Create a new group

  1. In the Add to Sheets extension, click the Groups expander.

  2. Give your group a name and select the columns you want to save content to.

In this example, we’ll name the group 📊 Track Spending and select the Daily Budget Tracking, Wedding budgeting, and Vacation Planning configurations.
