Enjoy real-time multi-user collaboration with the Retable Online Spreadsheet Solution

3 min readFeb 28, 2021

Tables and data are two key aspects of collaborative working. Both are intrinsically linked to the storage and sharing of key data and as such are crucial to collaboration. But when relying on shared documents, it can be hard to maintain versioning for table/data-based projects, particularly in terms of which changes were made when and by whom. This can cause all sorts of problems for managers and staff in trying to keep track of project development and can lead to inefficiency, repetition and lost time.

That’s why, online spreadsheets have become increasingly popular for teams and collaborative partners. Online databases offer more advanced features and are set to make clunky, laborious desktop-based spreadsheet applications a thing of the past.

Online databases make collaboration, versioning, storage and security, easier. Developers looked at simple spreadsheets and asked. ‘How could these be better?’ Then they looked at all the problems posed by modern businesses still using outdated spreadsheets, and they created solutions.

Collaboration & Remote Working

Nowadays, there are people who say simple spreadsheets still work for them. And it will always be the case that some smaller operations will only require the very basic functions of simple spreadsheets. But as collaborative and remote working becomes the future, more and more organisations are moving to the improved usability, scalability and collaborative functionality offered by online databases.

Browser-based online tables offer functions that are unthinkable with local spreadsheets. Anyone who has ever worked simultaneously with colleagues on one and the same table will understand the limitations of it. With online databases, changes made by an editor are immediately displayed on the screen as if by magic for all co-authors so there is no lag and no repetition.
