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 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 red Login button.
Don’t have a license? get one here.
After logging in, the backend of Group Leads looks like what’s shown below if you are using it for the first time, you need to click 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 on 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 red 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 like seen below.
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 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.
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 middle) 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.
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 Green Verified text. as shown below.
Now, you can click on the red UPDATE button to save your spreadsheet.
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 autoresponder.
