Product Updates: New Home, Nav Bar, Notifications, and more

Matt Robinson
co-founder & CEO

We’re happy to share that we launched a number of improvements to Spreadsheet.​com this past weekend including a new in-app home page, navigation bar, global search, workspace switcher, notifications, row activity icons, and resolvable cell comments with threading.

We also added a new workbook settings dialog where you can access newly added workbook-level controls for locale and time zone, and advanced features such as iterative calculations, which are now supported by the Spreadsheet.​com formula engine.

Let’s take a look!

New Home page

A new Home page showing your upcoming and overdue work, along with easy access to workspaces and recent items.

New Workspace Pages, Headers, and Icons

The Workspace Settings dialog has been replaced by new workspace landing pages with configurable icons and headers. Choose from several beautiful background images for each of your workspaces.

New In-App Notifications

In addition to all of the new navigation UI elements, you will now see in-app notifications whenever someone assigns you to an item or @mentions you. Each notification allows you to take action on it right from the notifications pane.

In Personal Settings > Notifications you can now control whether or not you want to receive email messages corresponding to cell comments, @mentions, or none at all across all workbooks you have access to.

These settings can be overridden at the workbook level by clicking the bell icon at the top of the workbook message channel.

New Row-level Activity Icon

The primary column of any worksheet can now be configured to show an activity icon, telling you how many row messages exist on that row.

New Cell Comments

Now cell comments appear on hover and are both threaded and resolvable.

Cell comments also now roll up to the workbook channel in the new Cell comments section.
