What's new?

✉️ Open sharing

We’ve taken the first step toward removing early access sharing restrictions in You can now share workbooks and folders with anyone using their work email address. There is no longer a need to request a domain be added to our whitelist. Sharing with ISP domains such as,, etc., will remain restricted until we officially launch our public beta (stay tuned).

💫 Version History

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Version History, allowing you to travel back in time to historical versions of your workbooks. Every worksheet change, down to the individual cell level, is automatically captured and stored in a backed up version that is quickly accessible for reviewing and restoring from as needed.

You can also easily copy and paste from any historical version to a live workbook. This has been designed to leverage the power of our cut, copy, and paste architecture, so all data type information will be retained including fully functional related row links and file attachments. The sheet-time continuum is now in your hands!

Purchase Order Spreadsheet

Version history went live as of February 27th. All workbook changes made from Feb 27th moving forward will be captured. For pre-existing workbooks, changes made prior to this date will not be available in version history.

📡 Connectivity loss detection and recovery

Collaborating with other users in real time when connections are spotty can be tricky to manage. That’s why we’re excited to announce the release of connectivity loss detection and recovery in Now when your internet connection becomes unavailable you will see a notice at the top of your browser. will automatically reconnect and sync your workbook with the latest changes once your connection is restored.

This includes coverage for other common scenarios such as leaving a workbook open in a browser tab and coming back to it after a long period of inactivity (e.g. overnight or a weekend holiday). When returning to your workbook you will now see a “Syncing workbook …” message as the workbook is brought up to date with any changes made since you were last online.

Fixes and enhancements

Among other improvements, we've made several fixes to issues with formula functions reported in the community such as WEEKDAY, WORKDAY, WORKDAY.INTL, EDATE and SPLIT.
