As part of its ongoing commitment to innovation and drive for intelligent spreadsheets, Retable has announced another tranche of new features to improve users’ experience of its free online spreadsheet solution. 8 new features have been added to Retable’s portfolio over the past couple of months. So, let’s dive in and see how they can help you work more efficiently:
Work Smarter with Templates
Retable is designed to make life easier for everyone. That’s why the team has put together a series of pre-made templates to help those who are new to the platform or wary of technology. The templates cover a wide variety of general use cases and are a great way to get accustomed to using online spreadsheets. Templates are sorted into categories such as Marketing, HR & Recruiting etc and can be added using simple dropdown menus.
For those who are more familiar with Retable, templates can be edited to suit your purposes. You can also make sure data and information systems are regularly updated by setting reminders for you or your staff.
Automation: the Intelligent Way to Work
Automation enables you to configure custom trigger-action workflows directly within your Retable base. An automation consists of a trigger followed by one or more actions to help make all data valuable and usable. It can prevent the need for individuals to complete repetitive admin tasks. This serves to eliminate the risk of human error while enabling human resources to focus on other tasks where their skills are put to better use.
Automations improve efficiency and help ensure individuals are constantly engaged in work that adds value by aiding communication, preventing repetition of tasks and reducing the margin for errors. They can also be set to retrieve all relevant files stored on the database following an update or ensure certain reports are automatically generated at a certain time (e.g. every Monday morning).
Automations can be used to ‘trigger’ a response or alert all (or selected users to)
- When a row is added
- When a row is deleted
- When a cell is updated
- When a form is submitted
Export Data without any Fuss
Save time and effort with the ability to export a file as .Retable format without having to make adjustments or amend the format. You can import it your table with the same properties when you want to import your file to Retable again.
Visualize your data with Charts
Display your data your way. Charts are a great way to show the bigger picture, help your team visualize data and get them on board with your message. Retable’s ‘Chart’ feature includes all the usual suspects so you can choose the method that best suits your purpose at any particular time:
- Bar chart
- Pie chart
- Line chart
- Area chart
Duplicate your work with one Click
Duplicate lets you copy and share an existing project without having to go through the process of repeating your entire workflow. Think of it as the ‘cut and paste’ of project management.
Easily Create Custom Views
Tailor your form view to suit your circumstances or create different views of project data for each individual or department according to what is most relevant to them. This feature eliminates the need for searching and reformatting, and lets you get straight on with the task in hand. When using Retable, a view is just a different way of looking at the same underlying data. So, when data is amended in one view, all other views are updated to reflect those changes. This ensures everybody is working with accurate, up to date information at all times.
Easily Create Tables View
Similar to customizing form views, but for tables.
Stop data loss. Keep it all in your Trash Bin
The trash function allows to restore tables, views, projects and workspaces that have been deleted. All deleted data is stored in your trash bin for two months from the time it is deleted so you can quickly and easily retrieve data that has been inadvertently deleted or which you realise you need to refer back to.
