CSV - Table Connect


We've received an incredible number of requests for a Table widget, ever since announcing our Connect series of CMS widgets. Table Connect is now available, and we think it's pretty awesome. This widget is the perfect complement to the Connect series of widgets, allowing the designer or client to update data within a table instantly using Google Sheets.

Setting up tables using Table Connect is a breeze. Create your own columns, and fill in the data. Website visitors can sort column data with a single click, and search the entire table using the included search field. Pagination allows large tables to be displayed in small spaces. We've even included a button that allows the users to download the table data instantly, in the form of a .CSV file.

Tips for editing CSV files

Commonly Asked Questions

What is a .csv file?

A .csv file is a basic spreadsheet file that can be edited in Excel, Numbers, Google Sheets, or similar.

Should I use the web-based template, or the local file? What's the difference?

Ultimately, there's no difference in the functionality of the sidebar menu, whether you use the web template or the local template. Local files allow for traditional editing and backup in your favorite spreadsheet editor. The web template option allows for immediate remote updates for you or your client.
