Enter Credentials to Upload Straight to AWS

Clicking the button will open a prompt, where you’ll have to enter your AWS credentials. Specifically, your:

  • Account Name (a unique name for this account for API Spreadsheets. This is not related to your AWS account in any way )
  • AWS Access Key
  • AWS Secret Key

Work With Importer Code

Every spreadsheet importer contains an HTML code to display a basic button.

Basic Example:

You can implement a basic button just by copy/pasting the code directly in the HTML structure of your page where you want the button to appear.

Advanced Example:

You can use CSS to style your button, and keep all the custom functionality.
