How to Integrate Group Leads With Benchmark
I assume you’ve done two things:
You’ve installed Group Leads and also set up the google sheet for the group you are working on.
You’ve set up the three questions users would answer while joining your Facebook group.
The next step you need to take is to integrate Group Leads with Benchmark. Please, follow these steps:
1) Log into your Benchmark account.
Go to contact, then click on Create List.
2) From this page, click next.
3) Select any of the four options as it applies to your list, I choose to add the contact manually. Then click next.
4) Enter the name of your list. Then click next.
5) Immediately your list is created, examine the URL of the created list and you’ll find your List ID.
It is always display as “master_id= (then a set of numbers)”, for the procedure, it is 17404097 as shown in the screenshot below.

9) Then choose the autoresponder you want to integrate, in this case, Benchmark. Now click on credentials.
N.B:- Unlike me, ensure that your "Disable Autoresponder" is toggled to "OFF."
10) Open the NotePad (on Windows) or TextEdit (on Mac) that you’ve inputed the collected details. Then place them as appropriate in the Group Leads dialog box.
After that, click Verify and Update.
