David Lee at EditGrid (yes, they help pay to keep this site going) contacted me with the latest list of features/enhancements:
With the “Share-to-Email” function, you can now share your spreadsheets to everyone whether they are registered EditGrid users or not. Simply going to “Share > Share with others > Add Emails” and it’s done!
II.) Spreadsheet Redirection
Inspired by MediaWiki’s page redirection syntax, EditGrid now supports spreadsheet redirection that will save your time from notifying your friends about any renaming of spreadsheet. Simply select “Create a new redirection” after you have renamed a spreadsheet, when your friend click on the old permalink, it will be redirected to the new one!
With the find-and-replace, you can now replace any phrase in your spreadsheet in EditGrid as you usually do in Excel. Simply click the hotkey “Ctrl+H” to open the find-and-replace dialogue and start replacing!
Besides the aforementioned features, we have also delivered a bunch of enhancements and bug fixes which makes EditGrid even better.
* More configurable workspace listing
* Clones remote data when copying a book
* Initialise mark revision text box with old description
* Improved cloning performance
* Allow user to choose which workspace to store the newly imported spreadsheet
I’m engaged in a project where I’d like to include them as part of the solution. Collaborative spreadsheets are a massive productivity boon and a great way to carve out redundancy in decision making. There is a also case for looking at Google Docs and Spreadsheets. But I am thinking full solution integration and i can get that easily with EditGrid. This won’t mean replacing Excel at the desktop but it will mean a leg up in overall productivity at very little cost.
