General Options

Before you dive headfirst into importing everything in sight from G2, take a moment to check out the General Options accessible via Testimonials > Import > Settings. These options let you choose which testimonials to import and assist with customizing the importing settings.

  • Name Field: G2 is heavily focused on B2B reviews. That’s why you need to look into the option to display the company’s or the individual’s name.
  • Rating: Analytics dashboard on G2 portrays the star ratings, but do you need to attach that detail to your testimonials? Well, it is entirely at your discretion to decide.
  • Email: This is an optional field. You cannot import it because G2 doesn’t publicly display or provide this information. And we recommend leaving it as Nil (–). 
  • Minimum rating: Are you curious to find a way to pull only the top-ranked reviews and publish them? Well, use the minimum rating scale to your advantage. 
  • Auto Import: If you want to keep your testimonial page updated, you can use the Auto Import feature on G2 to present the latest reviews from your clients on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis.   

Take a look at this guide to learn more about the General options. Make sure to save the changes after making the selections.
