  • You will be asked to grant Layer access to your Google Account to retrieve your Google Sheets. Click "Allow" and your Google account will now be connected to Layer.

  • You will be shown a list of your Google Sheets. Select one and click "Select".

How many Google accounts can I link to Layer?

You can only connect one Google account per Layer account. However, each of your team members can connect to a Google account and share ownership of their spreadsheets with the others.

Can I disconnect my Google account?

Currently, Layer doesn't offer the functionality to manually disconnect your Google account once you've connected it to a Layer account. However, you can contact our customer support through Intercom chat or email and we'll help you do so.

Can I connect spreadsheets uploaded on Google Drive?

You can only connect your Google Sheets spreadsheets. Excel files uploaded on Google Drive can't be connected.

You can directly upload your Excel files to Layer and additionally use the Layer Excel plugin to sync all the updates and changes.
