Blockspring Help

Welcome to the Blockspring support site. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Blockspring as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

There are two ways to share a spreadsheet that uses Blockspring.

Option 1: Share access

If you want to give a person access to your spreadsheet, you can share access. If they have Blockspring, they will see all of the spreadsheet's connectors and be able to run them. All scheduled connectors will continue to run according to their schedule.

Google Sheets:
Open a sheet that you want to share, then click the blue "Share" button in the top-right corner.

In Google Sheets, connectors will be run using the account of the person that logged into the Blockspring plugin most recently on the shared spreadsheet. So if you create a spreadsheet using Blockspring, then share the spreadsheet with your team, the spreadsheet will continue to run connectors using your account until someone signs into the Blockspring plugin in that spreadsheet.

Excel:
You can use any method that lets another person work with the Excel file. One method is to place the file on Dropbox or another file sharing service.

Option 2: Copy

If you want a person to have access to your sheet's functionality, but their own data, then they should make a copy of your spreadsheet.

Google Sheets:
In the top toolbar, go to "File" > "Make a copy".

Excel:
Locate the spreadsheet file on your computer. Right-click on the file, and then choose "copy".
