What is Sheet.chat?

Sheet.chat is a Slack app to connect to Google Sheets documents, also known as spreadsheets. In a Slack channel or in private discussions, users can:

  • search for existing records in spreadsheets
  • enter new records
  • get notifications about changes

Slack already has a native integration with Google documents. How is Sheet.chat different?

Slack has a native Google Drive app that provides previews for links and notifications about newly shared files and requests for access. Sheet.chat, on the other hand, works with spreadsheets and offers more advanced features related to their content. You should use both in tandem.


Can I share Sheet.chat features with my colleagues?

Yes. All users of a Slack workspace have access to Sheet.chat features once the setup is completed.


What is the setup process?

At least one member of a Slack workspace needs to sign-in with Slack on the Sheet.chat website, and then connect a Google Account and configure the spreadsheets to use. Then, anyone can use Sheet.chat in the workspace.

What data is accessed by Sheet.chat?

Sheet.chat needs access to spreadsheets data for notifications and search capabilities. It relies on Google Sheets API v4 with the OAuth 2.0 protocol using the scope "spreadsheets". Sheet.chat can only see or edit the spreadsheets you provide on the service, it cannot see or manage all the other Google Drive files.

On Slack's side, the service will access the meta information about the users who sign in and the list of channels. Sheet.chat cannot read your Slack messages. Your conversations remain private.


Who develops this?

Sheet.chat is created and maintained by Jeremy Greze as a side-project.
