Pipedrive is a sales CRM and pipeline management solution built by salespeople, for salespeople.
The platform adheres to the activity-based selling methodology, allowing sales teams to track and optimize every action during the sales process.
Although Pipedrive offers native reporting capabilities, many sales teams encounter the platform’s limitations and leave for spreadsheets.
With spreadsheets, sales teams can analyze their Pipedrive data with more flexibility and customizability.
However, importing Pipedrive data into spreadsheets is a cumbersome, inefficient process. Salespeople must manually copy-paste the data into spreadsheets, wasting time and causing errors.
But that all changes with our new Pipedrive connector for Google Sheets.
With our free connector, sales teams can now automatically import Pipedrive data into Google Sheets, schedule data updates, and launch Slack alerts based on the data.
Read on to learn how to set up our Pipedrive connector for Google Sheets, and the benefits it can bring your sales team.

Tracking New Leads/Deals
Many of our customers leverage spreadsheets to track new leads and deals in Pipedrive. Every time a new deal or lead is created in Pipedrive, a corresponding row is created in Google Sheets.
Our customers use our Slack alerts feature to receive a notification every time one of these new rows is created. This allows sales reps to stay on top of new leads faster, and keep track of when deals are closed.
