Installing & Setting Up Group Leads Chrome Extension
Thank you for signing up for Group Leads.
Please follow these steps to set up Group Leads chrome extension.
Note: Ignore steps #1 & #2 if you’ve added Group Leads extension to your chrome browser already.
Step #1: Click this link to install group leads chrome extension directly from chrome webstore.
Step #2: Click Add to Chrome button that shows up.
A pop up will come up, click on Add extension button. Once the installation is completed, a success page would open up.
You will find the Group Leads logo in your extension tray as shown below.
Step #3: Click on the Group Leads icon (above) to open up Group Leads, enter your license and then click the blue Login button.
Don’t have a license? get one here.
After logging in, the back-end of Group Leads looks like what’s shown below if you are using it for the first time.
From the dialog box, you can check the tutorial or request a 5 -15 minutes setup call with Group Leads founder if you need help.
Or just proceed by clicking on OPEN MY GROUPS button.
Please, click on OPEN MY GROUPS button to open up the first Facebook group you want to use the extension with from the list of groups you have on the left-hand side of your Facebook profile like shown below.
Once the group is open (like in this case, I opened up group #1 from the above screenshot), please click on the extension again and another blue button named: ADD THIS GROUP will show up.
You have to click on this button (just once) to add this group profile to Group Leads and it would look as shown below.
At this point, if you check the new members request page, you should see a red button on top of your normal approve all button.
If you don't see it and your Facebook language is not in English, please change your language to English and it would show up.
Above the new group profile, you will see the Group Leads related settings.
Disable autoresponder globally
Toggling the first button would allow you to totally disable autoresponder for all groups you would be adding to Group Leads if you don't need to collect data into your email marketing software/CRM.
You don’t need to touch this if you feel you want to use autoresponder for certain groups and not for others.
There are group-specific settings that allow you to disable autoresponder/email marketing software and you would see it if you click on the settings gear.
Allow the same autoresponder for all groups
If you plan to use Group Leads for multiple Facebook groups and you don’t want to have a separate spreadsheet for each of the groups, that is when you need to toggle the button next to this section.
Now, let move on to the group-specificsettings area
As you can see that there are are three gears: Delete, Settings & Automatic approval settings beside each group name.
Clicking on the settings gear (at the left) and you would have the settings shown below.
The first thing you need to set up is your google sheet URL, where you would be saving all your group members data including their email addresses.
First, you have to make a copy of the official group leads spreadsheet located here, name the spreadsheet as your Facebook Group Name and copy the URL of the new google sheet to the Google sheet URL box.
Do not rename the Sheet1 name below the sheet. If you do, the data would not get to sheet until you add revert it back to Sheet1
Please, copy only the full URL of your renamed spreadsheet from above and put it into Group Leads for saving your spreadsheet as shown below.
Now Click on verify link.
Depending on if you’re signed in to your Google account or not, a popup might come up asking you to authenticate with Gmail/google sheet, just follow the prompts.
Do so and once everything is fine, the blue verify link would change to Blue Verified text. as shown below.
Now, you can click on the blue UPDATE button to save your spreadsheet.
NOTE: This is very important before you proceed
From this point, you can proceed with the last part of setting up Group Leads chrome extension which has to do with integrating group leads with your favourite email marketing autoresponder or CRM.
Don't want to use autoresponder part of Group Leads?
If yes, then you just need to toggle Disable autoresponder option above TO THE RIGHT and then click on UPDATE and that's all if you go for the second option.
