Work With Importer Code

Every spreadsheet importer contains a code snippet.

Basic Example:

To create a basic button, simply take the code from API Spreadsheets and place it in the HTML of your page, where you want the button to go.

Advanced Example:

You can add just a few lines of CSS to customize the appearance of your HTML button, and it will still upload the files to Dropbox.
