Awesome Table - Now Available in French 🥐

Version française ci-dessous

We are excited to announce that Awesome Table can now be used entirely in French! As Awesome Table is a product used by millions around the world, this is a big step in making it more accessible to our users. The infrastructure is now in place for us to start rolling out even more languages so keep your eyes (and ears) out for more internationalization announcements!

Comment passer l’interface en Français

En haut à droite de l’application Awesome Table, cliquez sur l’icône “Globe” pour changer de langue. Votre choix sera retenu par la suite.

Vous pouvez bien entendu repasser en Anglais si vous le souhaitez.

Ce qui change

Une fois que l’interface est passée en Français, toute l’application d’édition et de gestion sera en Français. Seul le contenu des modèles de la galerie reste en anglais.

Introducing the new Awesome Table website 🎉

It has been a long time coming and it is finally here. We are proud to unveil a new website dedicated to highlighting key information about Awesome Table. Why should you be interested? With a brand new features list and 12 new or updated use cases, we made sure to include relevant information for new and experienced users alike.

What’s New?

The whole website has been built from scratch by our in house team. Here are some of the highlights:

How it works: We’ve created an interactive section of the website that showcases the step-by-step process of building an Awesome Table app. We have also included a visualization tool that lets you see how the spreadsheets and apps differ based on if it is a card, table, maps, or dashboard type app.

Features: We now have a comprehensive features list that clearly states the key benefits of using Awesome Table. Each feature is connected to a page in our help center, so learning more is as easy as clicking the link and reading one of our many in-depth articles.

Use cases: We have added a new set of use cases and templates to coincide with the launch of the website. The new use case page showcases 12 unique ways Awesome Table can be used. Each use case includes a template that you can copy for your own Awesome Table app. Examples include product catalogs, digital asset repositories, and a dashboard for your data.

Pricing: Interested in upgrading your Awesome Table subscription to take advantage of premium features? Our all new pricing page makes it easier than ever to find a plan that matches your unique needs.

Lastly, you might have noticed that the URL awesome-table.com now leads to this new website and not the dashboard and editor web application you’re used to seeing. The Awesome Table web application can now be accessed via app.awesome-table.com. You can also click the “Dashboard” button on the top right corner of the new website.

All existing apps continue to function normally of course.

Ready to dive in? Explore our new website here.

Awesome Table is moving to app.awesome-table.com

Dear users,

In an effort to modernise our infrastructure, we will be moving the product to https://app.awesome-table.com from https://awesome-table.com within the next few days.

That means that if you want to go directly to the dashboard, you will then have to go to https://app.awesome-table.com instead of https://awesome-table.com. Of course the dashboard will also be just one click away from the website.

All your apps will be automatically redirected and keep working as normal, without you having to do anything, unless you have configured a firewall. Please see this article for more details.

Should you have any question, please contact our support here.

Renaming Columns Using Queries 🗣

Have you ever wanted to change a column title within an Awesome Table app but couldn’t change it in the spreadsheet? There is a workaround via queries that will make your life a lot easier! While using queries is slightly technical, we will walk you through how to do this step-by-step.

What is a Query?

In Awesome Table, queries are used to ask the app to display the content in a certain way, all without touching the data from the spreadsheet. So if you want to do things like change the name of a column, filter out columns, reorder columns, only show rows based on certain criteria, or sort data, you can do so via queries. Today we are going to dive into how to rename columns.

Renaming Columns

To show how simple it is to rename a column, we will walk through a simple example using an app that showcases board games. From the edit page of Awesome Table click the Advanced Parameters dropdown menu. There you will find a field titled Query.

To change the name of a column, a query has to be written telling the system what column has to change. This can be done by referring to the data sheet. The title we want to change is Complexity and we want to make it say Difficulty. As can be seen in the data below, the column we want to change is column F.

Now we have to go back to the app and type in a query so that the app knows to change column F. The query will look like this: select * label F 'Difficulty'.

Query explanation:

  • The select part of this command tells the app what columns it should return.
  • The label F part is telling the app that column F needs to be renamed.
  • The 'Difficulty' part is telling the app exactly what you want the change to be.

Once you put this in the Query field and click update app at the bottom you are done!

Want to learn more about how to use queries in your Awesome Table? Check out our in-depth guide on the Awesome Table Help Center!

Improved Usage Reports - CSV Export and Faster Performance 📈

Most recently, we turned our attention to the usage report and upgraded it with a new function and performance enhancements.

Export to CSV

One function that has been asked for by many community members is the ability to export the usage report data to CSV format. This is now possible thanks to our latest update! On the upper right hand corner of the Apps page, you can now find the "Export" button where you will be able to download a .csv file with all your individual app usage data. You can then easily import this file into Google Sheets or Excel for further analysis and reporting.

Faster Performance

The second part of the update is a little more hidden but important nonetheless. We have been optimizing the report performance so that it loads quicker.

Usage reports can be accessed via the account icon on the top right corner of the page.
