Recently, there has been a sudden increase in the number of productivity and office space management tools. Partially, the reason could be that most of the world has shifted online. Rather than meeting and sharing data and files on paper, firms are choosing to stick to online solutions. Their online work also requires some structure and effective measures to function everything smoothly and strategically. You might not enjoy using them, but the features of such tools are unimaginable and unique to each.
Now that every other service is coming up with some new tools, Google decided to jump in the same puddle as well. Their yearning to participate in this revolution has resulted in the creation of Tables – a G Suite-integrated tool for productivity and management. Tables as a tool help the teams track & automate tasks without any trouble, enabling them to save time and work smarter.
Google has rolled it out as a versatile tool so you can use it for project & task management, IT operations, customer tracking, sales CRM, recruiting process, and product launch & development. You can quickly track tasks, customize views, and collaborate with anyone using Table. For IT operations, it enables you to easily manage support tickets and bug backlogs to enhance the services of your IT team. Manage your pipeline, leads, and client relationships with a built-in tool for your sales process. You can also streamline your recruiting pipeline, applicant tracking, and employee onboarding at the same platform.
The functions of Google’s Tables tools are not limited to the features mentioned above. It will also help you save time by working smartly. It has an automated action called ‘Bots’ that can trigger emails, update status, and send weekly reports. From the Views section, you can customize the way you want to visualize and interact with data using grid views, record lists, kanban boards, and maps. Since everything is integrated with Google, it can automatically send messages and notifications to your teammates via Google Chat or Slack.
It also allows you to import your files and documents from Sheets and .CSV, or you can also choose a template that suits your requirements. Tables also have a section dedicated to Forms from where you can collect data and customer responses without allowing them to access your personal tables. Currently, it is available in a two-tier plan, and one of them is absolutely free. Choosing the free plan gives you access to 100 tables, 1,000 rows, 1 GB attachments, 50 actions, and limited access to history, sharing, form creation, automation, and views. Whereas, the paid plan starts at $10 /month /user, and signing up for this one will get you three months of the free trial and unlimited benefits.
This amazing productivity tool is brought to you by Area 120, Google’s in-house incubator. In case you want to sign up multiple users to an account, you will have to contact their Sales team directly.
