This is a great add-on and exactly what we were looking for. The best bit though? The support. I didn't read the setup instructions as carefully as I should, - and still the support was a quick, personal, return email that showed me exactly what I was doing incorrectly. I was up and running in no time. Highly recommend and look forward to other nifty add ons from Portant.

Super simple timesaver! Most of the Google add-ons I install go underused or deleted because they're clunky or don't work in ways I want them to, but Portant is real intuitive and genuinely useful. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to automate more of their workflows.

I have been building digital form/spreadsheet solutions with various online form apps, add-ons, and integrations for many years -- I started with the first version of Zoho Creator -- and it is obvious to me that Portant is going to be a game-changer. This add-on is powerful, intuitive and adaptable to a variety of uses -- and the support is the most responsive I've ever encountered. This is a start-up that you want to work with!
