Sharing spreadsheets with your devices and applications

Sharing spreadsheets with your devices and applications

 Although Google Sheets and Drive are designed for sharing between users, you will notice that many times your spreadsheets are created as internal files and sharing is a trivial matter to get the job done. Sure.

You can streamline your workflow and real-time data sharing by taking advantage of these useful add-ons:

1. Google Docs mobile app. You can use the Google Sheets mobile app to view and edit your spreadsheets, share links on the go, and add users. It's a strong partner - but not a replacement for web applications.

2. Google Drive syncs to your computer. Google Drive lets you easily upload files from your local PC environment to your online Drive. It makes them accessible to your collaborators and even allows you to quickly import them into spreadsheets and other files.

3. Third-party tools like Zapier. You can use Zapier to automatically add data to your spreadsheets, send files to your Google Drive account, alert you to changes to your spreadsheet ... you name it

Please continue working on our spreadsheet example to demonstrate the use of Zapier, a software integration tool to make Google Sheets even more powerful.

Instead of clicking the "Share" button on my spreadsheet to send it to my colleagues, I want to send a Slack message informing them that I have created this new spreadsheet.

You can automatically send messages to Slack Channel with Google Sheets Trigger and Zapier's Slack Action.

Zapier integration:

Share new Google Spreadsheets to Slack

I set my Zap to search for a new spreadsheet in my Google Drive, then upload the file name and link to the spreadsheet in Slack Channel.
