Product Updates: Button Data Type

Matt Robinson
co-founder & CEO

We’re excited to announce availability of the new Button data type in Spreadshee​​t​​​​.​com, allowing you to trigger automation actions on a row or open a URL from a button click.

Let’s take a look!

Button data type

The Button data type allows you to define one or more automation actions that get invoked when users click a button.

Button data type in Spreadsheet.com

For example, here we’ve defined an automation to send a reminder notification to users assigned to a row when a Send Reminder button is clicked.

Buttons can also be configured to open custom URLs when clicked. For example, here we’ve defined a button to do a LinkedIn search using data from multiple columns in the worksheet.
