Introduction to Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets gives you the power to work with large, complex data in a familiar, collaborative, and controlled environment.

Working with Data

You can import data from existing spreadsheets using the Import feature for .CSV and .XLSX files. Use cross-sheet formulas to place data from multiple sheets into a single formula, and use links to keep your data consistent across all Wdesk documents.


Real-time collaboration allows multiple users to work simultaneously in one sheet. You can monitor cell changes from the History panel or enable the Authorship overlay to view which collaborators made certain changes. Using Permissions, spreadsheet owners can grant access to specific sheets and adjust the permission level of each collaborator.
