The UI/UX corner Google Spreadsheet integrations
If you follow the bs I’m writing for a bit you’ve probably noticed that I’m convinced that products should (more and more) offer multiple "small" interaction endpoints with their users (Slack bots, Zapier integrations, Chrome plugin...) and not only their full featured application / interface.
An interesting integration is the Google Spreadsheet one.
I’m using several SaaS / APIs with which I’m interacting mostly via spreadsheets.
Google spreadsheet add ons are available in the upper menu
Once you click on it, a side bar opens on the right.
As you can see you have quite a lot of options to play with:
3 different tabs (Discovery, Prospector and Enrichment) for the 3 main types of features available on Clearbit
for each tab a list of options to customize the results according to what you need
a button at the bottom
Same concept with blockspring.
I’m not saying that every SaaS should do that but, for example, I wish that more of them offer a simple / small Google Spreadsheet integration when there’s a metrics dashboard involved (of any kind). That would enable users to centralise their metrics without having to copy / paste them in cells all the time and also to manipulate the data more easily.
