}

  1. It’s triggered by clicking on the Connect button.
  2. We setup headers and a query using your access token and spreadsheet key (the long ID in the URL of the Google Sheet).
  3. Run the query – perform an http.get() and eval the results.
  4. Parse the results into an array. The array elements are “hagen=Walter Hagen” etc.
  5. Set the options to the array.
Tip

The column name on a Google sheet must match the control name. The matching is case-insensitive and any spaces in the column name are ignored. A control named "FirstName" matches a column header "first name." However, references to Google Sheet columns in your rule must be lower case and cannot contain spaces. The correct reference for this example is "firstname."
