Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a Personal Site and a Team Site?

Personal Site is an area for your personal documents, and is automatically and freely available for any Grist account at That’s also where you will find personal documents shared with you by others.

Team Sites are meant for regular collaboration by groups. They store documents at a subdomain of your choice such as A team site may be on the free plan, and you may upgrade a team site to any of the paid plans.

If I have a Team Site, what’s the difference between the Free plan and the Pro plan?

The difference between Free and Pro plan is the document limits. Documents on a Free plan can have up to 5,000 rows, and include automatic backups for 30 days. While Personal Sites are only available with the Free plan, Team Sites may be on a Free or Pro plan. On a Pro plan, the limits are much higher. See the pricing table above for the details of the difference.

What is included in the Business plan?

  1. Priority support, including prioritized email support, and 4 hours of video call support per year. Additional call support is available at $125/hr.
  2. Professional services available, to build your solution quickly with Grist Experts, or to develop custom integrations. Rates depend on the type and scope of services. See also Professional Services.
  3. Self-managed option is available to host Grist on your infrastructure:

    • Price is $9k per server per year, with each server license accommodating 50 seats. Example: $36k/year for up to 4 servers or 200 users.
    • One-time charge for initial technical setup work: $2k for a single-server installation (not scalable beyond 1 server); $4k for multi-server installation. These include, respectively, 10 or 20 hours of support with a technical expert, to be used in the first 3 months.
    • For self-managed servers, the customer is responsible for the costs and maintenance of server infrastructure.
    • Additional technical support for self-managed installations is available at $200/hr.

How are team members and guests different?

Team members are added as collaborators to your Team Site. On paid plans, team members require paid seats. Guests, on the other hand, are invited to particular documents, but are not added to your team. All documents in Grist, including those on personal sites, are allowed up to 2 free guests, and do not affect the plan price.

Whether you give someone access as a team member or a guest, you have full flexibility in determining their level of access to your data.

Are documents in a Team Site automatically shared with everyone on the team?

How documents are shared with team members is up to you. You may group documents into workspaces and edit permissions at the workspace-level to restrict access to certain team members, or create documents in the Team Site that are only visible to you. Learn more about team sharing to see what’s possible.

How can I get more rows?

If you are on a free plan, upgrade to the Pro or Business plans. If on the Business plan, you may contact us to get technical advice and discuss our Enterprise plan.

What is self-managed deployment?

A self-managed (or self-hosted) deployment lets you run Grist on your own servers, e.g. on-premise or in your private cloud. It is available for the Business and Enterprise plans. Self-hosting gives you control over security, compliance, monitoring, compute power, network access, authentication, and more.

For cost-sensitive customers, Grist has an open source edition, which can be self-hosted for free, and is perfect for individuals.

What do you mean by granular access rules?

Access rules address complex collaboration needs. Grist gives you far more control than deciding who a document is shared with. You can create detailed rules about who can see or edit individual tables, columns, and records.

For example, you may maintain sensitive HR data, and give each employee read access to a part of just their record. That allows Grist to function as an internal application, and removes the hassle and the risk in juggling multiple documents in order to share or collect data.

Do you offer any services to help companies build their database?

Yes! We offer professional services on the Business and Enterprise plans, both directly and via a network of Grist consultants who work closely with us. We’ll meet with you first to talk through your use case and see which approach would work best for you. See Professional Services for more details, or contact us to get started.
