EditGrid provides users with an online spreadsheet tool that includes most of the same features offered by Excel. Users can create a simple spreadsheet that is stored online and can be shared with others. The application also supports appearance editing tools, such as cell colors, font variations and more. Users can also apply tags to their EditGrid spreadsheets, making them accessible to the online community. Users can see who created the spreadsheet, when it was last updated, how many views it has received and leave comments on spreadsheets that others can read and respond to. The site also provides spreadsheets that feature live data, such as stock quotes and other frequently updated data. Along with providing an online spreadsheet tool, EditGrid has also built an online community that enables users to interact and network through spreadsheets.Show more screenshots »
EditGrid was launched in early 2006. It was developed to take advantage of new online techniques that allow the implementation of web applications. The application was intended to provide users with an easy online spreadsheet tool. The company is based out of Hong Kong and currently includes CEO P.K. Chan, Chief Software Architect Alan Tam, Vice President of Development Reggie Chan and Vice President of Technology Tony Sung.
EditGrid offers users an extensive, useful way to create, edit and store spreadsheets online. The web based nature of the program makes it extremely accessible and allows the user to share data quickly and easily. EditGrid currently includes more spreadsheet functions than Google Docs, making it even more appealing to users who require more detailed options with their online spreadsheets.
EditGrid has a very simple, but effective website design that complements the user friendly interface offered by the application. The homepage features a blue header with a rather plain logo. Five tabs along the top, right hand side help users navigate and provide a few gold highlights to add personality to the site. The spreadsheets look much like Excel spreadsheets. Users can also find a search tool bar in the upper, right hand corner of the page.
A visitor is not required to log in to search and browse existing spreadsheets on EditGrid. Those who would like to access all of the current features should create an account. This can be done by clicking on the gold and blue “Sign Up” tab in the upper, right hand corner. The user is asked to choose between either a personal or business account. Personal uses are asked to provide an email address, first and last name, username and password. Business users are asked to provide an organization name, organization ID, contact person name, telephone number, email address, default time zone, admin username, preferred language and business address. The user must also note whether the organization is academic or non profit.
EditGrid is currently available to all users for free. Regardless of whether the user selects a personal or business account, they can access all features at no cost. The business option requires more information when signing up, but still costs nothing to use.
EditGrid.com is a helpful tool for anyone who works with spreadsheets. The application provides users with a way to create an online spreadsheet to share data or make data easily accessible from any computer. The free access is a great option for individuals as well as small businesses.
