  • It not only scrapes your information for you, but it scrapes it directly to your target spreadsheet
  • You have absolute control over where your data is placed in your spreadsheet, including even the exact sheet and column, and sometimes, even row
  • If you have a column of urls, you can automatically scrape all those links, and then have the scrape results automatically placed in your spreadsheet
  • If appropriate, this includes the option to place the results exactly in the row where the link was found, kind of like enriching that row with additional information
  • After your scrape, with just one click you can exclude any results that contain certain values that you don’t want in your sheet for whatever reason, thanks to Sheets Genie’s data processing capabilities
