Droptables: Excel and Google Sheets Sync
1. Excel file synchronization
It is possible to run a synchronization between a table you've created and an Excel file located on your server (anywhere). From the right tab named "Table", at the bottom you got a block to link an Excel file to the table.
On click on the Browse button, you'll be able to select an Excel anywhere on your server, here it's a file uploaded through the media manager (/images folder).
Once your Excel file is linked to the table, you can hit the Fetch data button to import data from the Excel file.
2. Synchronization with Google Sheets
Droptables offers a Google Sheets synchronization possibility. Your Google Sheets need to be "published to the web" to be synchronized. First, open your sheet from Google Drive and publish it as web page using the File menu.
On the Publish to the web pop-up, click on Publish button and confirmation to make sure you want to do it. Then, you will get access to Google Sheets file link, copy this link.
And paste it into Droptables “Table” tab. You're done! you can now fetch data from your Google Sheets.
3. Automatic Excel and Google Sheets sync
Above the file link you can also activate an automatic data synchronization. Droptables will fetch the data automatically at a regular interval.
Once it's activated a notification is displayed after the table title.
The synchronization delay can be set in the Droptables configuration.
