  • who you're signed in as
  • if ownership of Google spreadsheets is delegated to another user: delegated ownership allows you to create Google spreadsheets in Bulk Updater using the account of a user specified by your administrator – this is the case for all Microsoft users, and also Google users if your administrator decided to set up it up

  • if your offline consent is valid:
    • for Google users this means that the Bulk updater is registered as a third party application in accounts.google.com
