What is Google Sheets?
Google Sheets is the spreadsheet application included with Google's Workspace product. There are many add-ons for Workspace that add functions and features to the apps. Advanced URL Shortener for Google Sheets is an add-on to connect your Bitly account to your Google Sheets toolbar.
Because we didn't create this add-on, we won't be able to help you troubleshoot issues on the Google Sheets side. You can contact the developer, Digital Thoughts, for assistance.
Why should I add this to Google Sheets?
If you're managing shared links in Google Sheets, Advanced URL Shortener makes it easy to shorten the links and view their click metrics directly in the spreadsheet. You can shorten one link at a time with the free version and need to upgrade for bulk updating.
