CF7 Google Sheets Connector

Send your Contact Form 7 data directly to your Google Sheets spreadsheet.

This plugin is a bridge between your WordPress Contact Form 7 forms and Google Sheets.

When a visitor submits his/her data on your website via a Contact Form 7 form, upon form submission, such data are also sent to Google Sheets.

How to Use this Plugin

In Google Sheets
* Log into your Google Account and visit Google Sheets.
* Create a new Sheet and name it.
* Rename the tab on which you want to capture the data.

In WordPress Admin
* Create or Edit the Contact Form 7 form from which you want to capture the data. Set up the form as usual in the Form and Mail etc tabs. Thereafter, go to the new "Google Sheets" tab.
* On the "Google Sheets" tab, copy-paste the Google Sheets sheet name and tab name into respective positions, and hit "Save".

In Google Sheets
* In the Google sheets tab, provide column names in row 1. The first column should be "date". For each further column, copy paste mail tags from the Contact Form 7 form (e.g. "your-name", "your-email", "your-subject", "your-message", etc).
* Test your form submit and verify that the data shows up in your Google Sheet.

Important Notes

  • You must pay very careful attention to your naming. This plugin will have unpredictable results if names and spellings do not match between your Google Sheets and form settings.

Why isn't the data send to spreadsheet? CF7 Submit is just Spinning.

Sometimes it can take a while of spinning before it goes through. But if the entries never show up in your Sheet then one of these things might be the reason:

  1. Wrong access code ( Check debug log )
  2. Wrong Sheet name or tab name
  3. Wrong Column name mapping ( Column names are the contact form mail-tags. It cannot have underscore or any special characters )

Please double-check those items and hopefully getting them right will fix the issue.

How do I get the Google Access Code required in step 3 of Installation?

  • On the Admin Panel > Contact form 7 > Google Sheets screen, click the "Get Code" button.
  • In a popup Google will ask you to authorize the plugin to connect to your Google Sheets. Authorize it - you may have to log in to your Google account if you aren't already logged in.
  • On the next screen, you should receive the Access Code. Copy it.
  • Now you can paste this code back on the Admin Panel > Contact form 7 > Google Sheets screen.
