From raw data to interactive dashboards: Google Sheets integration for your business

Enhance The Power Of Google Sheets With Seamless Integration 

Apart from helping users organize, calculate and tabulate their information, Google Sheets is a collaborative application where multiple people can work on the spreadsheet simultaneously. Despite being a productivity tool with many features and strengths, Google Sheets lacks security, scalability, and integration capabilities.

However, to unlock its full potential, you need to integrate it with other tools and platforms that your business uses. One of the most common use-cases on top of a Google sheet is building a dashboard on the data. This is where low code tools like DronaHQ come into play. DronaHQ offers seamless integration with Google Sheets, allowing you to build a compelling frontend on top of your Google Sheets data. Read on as we discuss more about the Google Sheets integration with DronaHQ.

What is Google Sheets integration?

Google Sheets is a data management and productivity tool that helps business users to organize data seamlessly and simplify internal collaboration.

Internal users can easily leverage the data they are maintaining over at Google Sheets with integration that supports the pulling and pushing of data. Suppose you need to create different perspectives from your sales, marketing, and support team on top of the same data source, or if you need to let your team add/update only selected columns in the sheet- DronaHQ lets you support the required operations with meaningful logic. Additionally, you can fetch sheet details, create new sheets, fetch all rows and update data dynamically from your apps. 

Why Integrate your Application with Google Sheets?

Google Sheets are easy to get started with. However, it can get tricky to manage once teams scale. It needs to provide more security with access- it is either view all or edit all. 

The lack of some capabilities makes it challenging to collaborate with multiple users while keeping the sanctity of the original data intact. Here are some reasons why Google Sheets integration to a custom app makes sense

2. With DronaHQ you can set role-based views, and protect your sensitive data while ensuring that team members can access, edit, and delete the Sheets information as per their roles.
