I am using it in the place where I'd use a comprehensive spreadsheet or database. Generally, it's used by myself only, however, another staff member will use it to check data. It's helping me have the data in small enough sets using the widgets, but also having it all linked in the tables so that I can see or find any info that is needed quickly. In the past, finding and storing this info has been challenging, but has been made simple with Grist. I also use it on a personal level to track mood/health as this impacts on my day to day work also.
  • Linked data tables so you can use the info in whatever way you'd like
  • Ability to use python to create formulas that get what you need - And support for using python in the user support forum
  • Widgets and new pages can help you display the info however it is needed
  • Making the user permissions more obvious on how to use them - They are highly adaptable, but hard to understand how to use them
  • Small changes such as auto colouring the choices/toggles options and being able to edit them once set.
  • Being able to copy the formatting from one column to the next
This is well suited to someone (or a team) who are technically minded and have a dataset that they need to be able to use in many ways. It's less appropriate for a team who isn't technically minded and/or don't have the data they need to manipulate. It would be useful for things that you could use a database or spreadsheet for such as CRM, Advertising database, Business tracking, Health tracking etc.
