Product Updates: Web API, webhooks, and 10 new templates

Matt Robinson

What's new in Spreadsheet.com?

We’re delighted to launch the Spreadsheet.com Developer API, allowing developers to programmatically interact with Spreadsheet.com to create custom apps and integrations.

We also added two new automation triggers for “When a new row is created” and “When a row is updated”, and we rolled out support for Webhooks in Spreadsheet.com automations with a new “Post to Webhook” automation action.

In addition, we published 10 new templates for use cases ranging from Project and Product Planning to Sales Planning and Personal Travel, as well as 6 new use case guides and 5 new work management articles.

Let’s take a look!

Spreadsheet.com Developer API

The Spreadsheet.com Developer API is a RESTful API that lets developers programmatically interact with Spreadsheet.com data, allowing you to:

As the API expands and changes we will share details of new features in the What’s new section of our Community and update the API documentation available at developer.spreadsheet.com.

For more information on getting started with the API, and using API Keys, see Spreadsheet.com API Overview.

Webhook automations

Webhooks, also known as web callbacks or HTTP push APIs, are a way for apps to send other apps real-time data. The new Webhook automation action in Spreadsheet.com allows you to post updates to servers or third-party applications whenever automations are triggered in your worksheets.

Webhooks work in conjunction with the Spreadsheet.com Developer API. For more information on working with Webhooks, see Post to a Webhook.

New Trigger Types

Two new automation Trigger types have now been added, giving you more ways to automate work inside your worksheets.

The “When a new row is created” trigger fires 3 minutes after a row is initialized with data (i.e. when a cell is first populated with data in an empty and uninitialized row), allowing time for data entry to be completed before the trigger runs.

The “When a row is updated” trigger fires immediately whenever data in a cell within a row changes.
