Adding multiple Light users to your Guru team? We're here to help! This spreadsheet is set up to help users do bulk invitations or user removal specifically for Light users. The spreadsheet has code built into it that calls Guru's API and lets you:

  • Invite Light users.

    • Any add operation will invite the user if they're not already on your team.

  • Remove Light users from your team.

    • It will only remove the user if they are designated as Light.

How to use the sheet

To get started you need to do these two steps:

  1. Open our sheet and do File > Make a copy.

    1. Our sheet is not editable. Making a copy gives you a personal copy that's not shared with anyone so there's no way your data can be seen by anyone else.

  2. Enter your username and API token in the designated cells.

  3. Don't forget to delete your API token (or the entire spreadsheet) when your work is complete.

Adding new Light users

  1. Enter the email addresses in the User column

  2. Select Add Light User to Team in the Action column.

  3. Make sure you've selected the correct users to add.

  4. You'll see a confirmation in the status column when it is complete.

Removing users from the team

  1. Enter the email addresses in the User column.

  2. Select Remove User from Team in the Action column.

  3. Make sure you've selected the correct users to remove.

  4. Once you're sure, select Yes in the Are you sure? column.

  5. You'll see a confirmation in the status column when it is complete.

Email Invites

  • Adding Light users through the above process will send an email invite to the team member invited. These emails will include which team member invited the user to Guru. This is determined by the user attached to the API token.

  • When bulk adding users, it is best practice to give your IT team a heads up first, so they expect these emails from notify@getguru.com. Otherwise your systems may flag a bulk influx of invite emails as spam and block them.

  • If you would like to disable email invitations, you can navigate to "Team Settings" > "Email Preferences" > uncheck the box that sends users invitation emails.
