Creating Spreadsheets Using Zapier — And Sending Them To Datadeck
Summary: For data sources, we don’t currently support, use Zapier to automatically gather the data into a Google Spreadsheet that Datadeck can access.
If you need data from a data source which we don’t currently support, try using Zapier to gather the data into a Google Spreadsheet automatically. Datadeck can access it from there.

3. Click “Create This Zap”
4. Continue through to connect your app
5. Follow prompts for any specific data in the app (For Facebook, you will need to select appropriate pages)
6. Authorize Zapier’s permissions.
7. Your account will now be visible and connected. Click “Save + Continue”
8. Now you will begin creating the spreadsheet.
9. Read instructions and click “Continue.”
10. Connect a Google Sheets account and create a spreadsheet within that account.
11. Your Google Sheets account will now be linked.
12. If you have set up your spreadsheet correctly, your Zap will now be working. The data that is being compiled in your spreadsheet can be sent to DataDeck by clicking the “Data Source” tab at the top of your Datadeck.com dashboard. Click the Google Drive icon.
13. Click “Connect a new account.” Now you will be able to select your spreadsheet!
