Product Updates: Zoom level in Sheet and Gantt views
co-founder & CEO
We’re happy to share that worksheet zoom level is now available in Sheet views and Gantt views.
In addition, we improved Undo/Redo support for formulas so that deleted rows and columns that are subsequently restored also restore dependent formulas.
We also built a relational database version of NFX's open source generative tech market map for those interested in exploring data about companies building generative AI technology.
Let’s take a look.
Zoom in, zoom out
We’re delighted to announce the arrival of Zoom in Sheet and Gantt views. The ability to quickly zoom in and out of a worksheet has been a long awaited and highly requested feature in Spreadsheet.com.
As with traditional spreadsheets, you can control the zoom level of your worksheet by zooming in up to 200% and out to a minimum of 50%. The experience is just as smooth and fast in Gantt views as it is in Sheet views.
This can be combined with your browser’s zoom level to increase or decrease the net zoom level in either direction.
Zoom level is a user-specific setting and does not affect other collaborative users in the workbook.
Undoing the deletion of rows and columns that formulas depend on now properly restores those formulas to their previous state, as expected. This applies to cross-sheet formulas as well. As with many formula engine capabilities, supporting this traditional spreadsheet behavior is more complex than it sounds. Hats off to our engineering team!
What’s Happening in Generative Tech?
Generative AI is leading one of the fastest sea changes we’ve seen in software. Software companies will have to adapt fast or get left behind. At Spreadsheet.com we’re building powerful new AI capabilities into the product and can't wait to get these productivity boosting features into your hands.
We enjoyed browsing NFX’s data so much that we recreated their market map as a relational database in Spreadsheet.com with filtered Views, a built-in Form, and Related Rows allowing you to navigate between companies, categories, and locations. Check it out here.
Dashboards Create and share documents that aggregate and visualize data from multiple workbooks and reports to present a real-time view of information in a variety of ways such as embedded Views, Charts, key metrics, videos, text, and more.
Button Data Type Ability to create buttons in cells that open a URL or trigger an automation to create a row or send an email, Slack notification, etc. about the row in context.
Row Movement Ability to drag and drop rows to reposition them in Sheet and Gantt views. This includes the ability to move parent rows in a hierarchy and have all child rows move with them.
Drag & Drop Cell and Range Movement Similar to traditional spreadsheets, we’re adding the ability to drag and drop individual cells and ranges to move them in the grid.
Notifications An in-app notifications list updated in real time showing each user all of the row assignments, @mentions, alerts, and reminders meant for them.
Mobile Apps V1 of the Spreadsheet.com mobile app for iOS and Android.
Stay tuned for these and more updates coming soon ...
