Prepare your data using Google Sheets

In order to set up integration between Vtiger and Mapsly you need to prepare a Google Sheet that will contain data for a one-time import. For this example we will use a simple Contacts table that will contain the following fields: id, Name, and Address:

Then, create a new Google Sheet, create the corresponding columns and import your data to your Google Sheet:

Keep in mind, that the id field has to be stored in column A. If you want to configure different field types, please use this Google Sheets configuration guide.

Then, connect your Google Sheets to Mapsly as described in this guide.

After you import your sheet you can disable the sync between Google Sheets and Mapsly since it is no longer needed:
