Query, Post and Sync Data from PostgreSQL

What is Sheet Director?

Sheet Director is a Google Workspace add-on that helps to manage and control bi-directional data flow between Google Sheets and several other applications like Google Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, Sheets, QuickBooks, FreshBooks, Zoho etc. 

It is available in the Google Workspace Marketplace. Please check the Installation instructions to install the add-on. 

What is PostgreSQL?

PostgreSQL, also known as Postgres, is a free and open-source relational database management system emphasizing extensibility and SQL compliance. It was originally named POSTGRES, referring to its origins as a successor to the Ingres database developed at the University of California, Berkeley.

Setting up PostgreSQL with Sheet Director

Choose the PostgreSQL (Premium app) from the list and choose the service which you want to perform

If you're opening it for the first time on the sheet, then you won't be having any connections.

Don't worry Sheet director provides a way to create a connection easily

To create the connection you have to provide the following details.

Test Connection

Once you have provided the credentials you can easily check the connectivity by clicking on the test connection button

Based on the credentials authenticity, you will be having the feedbacks from the test

Once after connecting successfully, you can save the conection and continue.

These connections can be reused anytime and from any services used on the same Google Sheets

Querying on PostgreSQL

Once after saving the connection successfully, you can select the table and fields that you want to present on the Google Sheets

You also have a refresh button to get the updated tables list from the database


Filters can be used to query only the matching data from the tables 

You can have multiple filters filters to a query


Sort can be used to sort the query results based on your interest.

You can have multiple sorts to a query

Syncing on PostgreSQL

Select Sync as a service

Synchronize settings

Synchronization Key

The keys will be used for matching rows in Google Sheets with data in PostgreSQL, these keys will be your primary key. (This is identified automatically)

Conflict Resolution:

MySQL Wins: The latest data from PostgreSQL will be updated in Google Sheets.

Google Sheet Wins: The latest data from Google Sheets will be updated in PostgreSQL.

Note: The major requirement in synchronization is the synchronize keys. If any of the keys is not having a value in the Google Sheet then the Sheet Director will create it in the PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL Wins

Updating all the Status to Inactive in PostgreSQL where the Google Sheet Still has the status has Active

Updating few records email addresses

Let's execute this to get the updated record from the PostgreSQL

Before Synchronizing 

After Synchronizing

The value from PostgreSQL is now updated on Google Sheets
