Frequently Asked Questions

What are the prerequisites for using the Clearout add-on with Google Sheets?
To ensure smooth operation, it's important to maintain a stable internet connection, as Google Sheets relies on consistent online access for updating processes on the client side within the browser.
Why did my email verification procedure come to a stop?
In addition to an unreliable internet connection, another circumstance that could lead to a pause in verification is surpassing the Google Sheets daily API rate limit. This limit stands at 500 verifications per day, with the important distinction that Google Workspace (G Suite) accounts might have an extended limit.
What steps should be taken if the verification process comes to a halt?
If the verification process halts at a certain row, you can simply reload the page. This will help you check the status and allow you to start your verification process again from the row it paused.
Will I be charged for re-verifying emails that were previously verified?
No, you won't be charged for re-verifying emails that were previously verified. Our system bypasses verification for the latest verified email, ensuring that you don't incur any additional charges for this process.
Can I change the “last verified” duration according to my needs?
Yes, you can customize the “last verified” duration to suit your requirements. This customization allows you to optimize the re-verification process based on your workflow and needs.
What advantages come with extending the “last verified” duration to 24 hours?
By extending the “last verified” duration to 24 hours, you effectively conserve your credits by preventing them from being utilized for email re-verification within this 24-hour period.
