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!
A new Home page showing your upcoming and overdue work, along with easy access to workspaces and recent items.
The Workspace Settings dialog has been replaced by new workspace landing pages with configurable icons and headers.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.
And pick from different colors and emoji’s to customize your workspace’s icon.
A new vertical navigation bar with quick search allowing fast and easy access to everything in your workspace.
A new workspace switcher allowing you to toggle between different workspaces you have access to.
A new global search tool providing a way to quickly search across all workspaces you have access to for Workbooks, Reports, Dashboards, Worksheets, and Views.
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.
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.
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.
Last but not least, a new Workbook Settings dialog is available from Menu > File > Workbook Settings, allowing you you to enable iterative calculation settings for any workbook, and view locale and time zone settings.
A few features we're busy working on now:
Stay tuned for these and more updates coming soon ...
