How is RowShare different from Google Sheets or Excel Online?

Antoine Driard Updated by Antoine Driard

Great question! RowShare is a collaborative table and not exactly a spreadsheet. What is the difference?

Amongst the differences (focusing on the positive ones), I could list:

  • Without any doubt, RowShare key strength is its ability to define access rights by row and column. That way, many people can work at the same time on a single centralized table without seeing or any risk of overwriting other users' data. And you keep a constantly up to date and consolidated version.
  • RowShare ability to handle pictures and other file attachments. There are countless situations where one wants to include a scan, a picture, a contract with the listed information.
  • Each user can decide to receive notifications when their favorite tables are modified
  • You can comment rows with Comment columns
  • You can display for each row by whom it was created and when, as well as the same information about its last modification.
  • We do not offer a virtually infinite spreadsheet of cells where you can enter anything: as you have to add columns and choose their “information type”, you will strongly encourage / force your collaborators to enter proper data where you expect it. Similarly, it’s easy to make columns read only, unique, hidden…
  • RowMerge generates custom documents from your own templates and your table data to create custom contracts, printouts...
  • and much more...

Our goal is not to get better than Google Sheets or Excel as a spreadsheet but to add more collaborative features. Stick to your favorite spreadsheet for complex data analysis and calculations, and switch to RowShare to manage your business processes.
