    2. Click “File” then “Make a copy”.
    3. This will create a copy of the template spreadsheet with the formula in your Google Sheets.
    4. In the “Settings” worksheet, paste your API key into cell B1.

    Option 2: Manually copy the code

            "First name", "Last name", "Company name", "Job title", "Professional email", "LinkedIn profile URL"
        // Send HTTP request to Firmographics Explorium API -
        const response = UrlFetchApp.fetch("", {

            payload: JSON.stringify([{
                "email": email
            headers: {

        if (responseCode !== 200)
            return responseJson.message;
        const signals = responseJson[0];
        const relevantFields = => signals[field]);
        return [relevantFields];
    // Reads Explorium API Key from Settings sheet, B1 cell
    function readExploriumAPIKey() {
      var spreadsheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
      var worksheet = spreadsheet.getSheetByName("Settings");
