Solve spreadsheet problems

No more spreadsheet bloat, Excel file consolidation or sprawling Google Sheets dashboards.

Beyond the grid

Too many data workflows depend on spreadsheet version control — on ever-growing shared folders or even over email.

Grist is built to solve these problems.

Problem: Inefficient data management

Grist is structured like a database

  • No duplication. A single source of data accessible by everyone.
  • Relational data. Link data across tables using reference columns.
  • REST API. Powerful integration with external data sources.

Problem: Difficult collaboration

Grist is built for cross-functional teams

  • Real-time updates. Work together live in a browser.
  • Access rules. Control user permissions down to the cell.
  • Spreadsheet UI. Get users on board with a familiar interface.

Problem: Limited visualizations

  • Custom layouts. Drag and drop to create your own design.
  • Visualizations. Use charts, tables, cards, Markdown, HTML and more.
