Octoboard Google Sheets add-on works as a sidebar inside your Google Sheets documents and it can be installed from the Google Workspace Marketplace.
Go to Google Workspace Marketplace, locate Social Links add-on and install it for your organization or your individual account.
Once installed, you can use the Launch Sidebar option in your document.
In the sidebar, you will need to connect to your Octoboard account. If you do not have an account, you will be able to create one using the same interface.
You will need to select the Octoboard product that you want to use to collect the data – Octoboard for Business or Octoboard for Agencies. Please make sure you select the correct account. All connections that you create in your Octoboard account will only be visible within that account and cannot be transferred.
You will be asked to either create a new account or to log in to an existing one.
The account that you selected will need to have the Octoboard Google Sheets license in order to run automated queries and collect cloud data.

Once you have connected to your Octoboard account, your sidebar will load and will display the Social Links Add-on interface.
You can now start entering website domains and requesting social link details.
The interface is quite simple and intuitive. First you need to enter or load a list of website domains to your Google Sheets document. Make sure they are loaded in one column one above the other.
Select the cell range that contains website domains (1 column) and click REFRESH button. The RANGE element will display the selected range.
Below the range element, the add-on will show the maximum number of API requests that could be required to provide information for all entered domains. If information can not be retrieved for some of the domains, these API updates would not be counted toward your quota.
Once you click GET LINKS button, our platform will run queries for selected website domains and, if successful, will return the following information:
- Facebook account url
- Twitter account url
- Youtube channel url
- Instagram account url
- Pinterest account url
