In Sheetgo, a transfer is the unit used to measure the consumption of a workflow. A basic workflow, such as one that simply sends data from one spreadsheet to another, uses one transfer. Each time you update automations, whether manually or through scheduled automatic updates, a new transfer is used.

Transfers occur whenever data moves between locations via Sheetgo automations within a workflow. Various functions within Sheetgo also use a transfer, such as Transfer Formatting. Since they have to move the format of one spreadsheet to another, it also uses a transfer.

Example of transfers

  • A workflow with six files that gather data into one central spreadsheet will use six transfers each time the workflow is updated (manually or automatically).

  • Merge automations that consolidate three files into one will use three transfers.

  • Split automations that send data from one tab to 20 destination sheets will use 20 transfers.

  • Automations that generate an email, will also use one transfer per each email sent.
